@DoubleAA I have the feel that you do actually know what I mean... please edit my question if you feel that it would remove ambiguity

comment Do Jews believe the content of Maccabees (I-IV) is true?
@DoubleAA there's clearly a difference. The Torah was given by Hashem - so it's true. However it's not always to be taken literally- we need to learn the oral Torah to understand it. However the book of Maccabees was written by an (unknown) man with his own (possibly warped/bias) views. Who says we should take it as being true?

I mean: could a believing Jew read this and take it for-granted that the content is true. If it had haskamot from leading Rabbinic authorities (like Rishonim/Acharonim) then I would say yes.
