While all 66 books in Protestant Bibles are found in the Catholic Bible, the Catholic Bible includes other additional books known as the deuterocanonicals/Apocryph. The Catholic Bible has 73 books, 46 in the Old Testament (Protestant Bibles have 39) and 27 in the New Testament (same as Protestant Bibles). The Deuterocanonicals-Apocrypha books are: Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees. If the Council of Trent didn’t add the deuterocanon to the Bible, as its deliberations show, why do Protestant bibles exclude these books? Before , nearly all Protestant bibles included the deuterocanonical books; between the years to , Protestant bibles with the deuterocanon were the rule and not the exception. It was not until the middle of the seventeenth century that the.

A Catholic Bible has 46 books in the Old Testament versus 39 in a Protestant Bible. The Catholic Church regards as part of the Bible the books of Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), Baruch, 1 and 2 Maccabees, as well as some additional stories and verses in the books of Daniel and Esther. These differences, as you can see, were relatively minor and nothing close to the later difference between the Protestant Old Testament and the Catholic/Orthodox Old Testament. Another reason for the difference is that the Eastern Orthodox do not hold the same legalism as the Catholic Church when it comes to inspiration and canonical : Fr. Charles Grondin.

  Chronicles typically followed Samuel and Kings with their similar history, and the Bible concluded with the 12 “minor prophets” ending with Malachi, as in today’s Catholic and Protestant. This English version without the doxology of the Our Father became accepted throughout the English speaking world, even though the later English translations of the Bible including the Catholic Douay-Rheims () and Protestant King James versions () had different renderings of prayers as found in the Gospel of St. Matthew. Later, the.

The Protestant Old Testament includes exactly the same information, but organized into 39 books. For example, the Hebrew Bible has one book of Samuel, while the Protestant Bible has I and II Author: Elesha Coffman.

The Roman Catholic Bible contains seven books that do not appear in most Protestant Bibles. How and Why Catholic and Protestant Bibles Differ book are Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus and Baruch.

If not, why. Discussion: The most noticeable differences occur in the number of books included and the order in which they have been arranged.

Both the Jewish Bible and the Hebrew canon in a Protestant Bible (aka Old Testament) contain 39 books, whereas a Catholic Bible contains 46 books in the Old Testament.

Catholic and Orthodox Bibles The Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches did not follow the Protestant revisions, and they continue to base their Old Testament on the Septuagint. The result is that these versions of the Bible have more Old Testament books than most Protestant versions.

Why Catholic Bibles are Bigger tells the story of how some Protestants used the removal of the Deuterocanon from the Bible as a proxy for their attack on Catholicism. Some reviewers have characterized this work as unscholarly, but the footnotes (not to mention the numerous in-line citations), and the argument-response approach of the author /5(35).

The Catholic New Testament canon is identical to that of the Protestants other than some minor translation differences. Our difference lies in the contents of the Old Testament where we have Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch and additions to Esther and Daniel.

These books were called apocryphal by the Protestants and deuterocanonical (Second [ ]. Common Misunderstanding: That since the Catholic Old Testament contains seven more books than Protestant Bibles, the Catholic Church must have added later to justify doctrines that Jesus did not teach.

Response: The Catholic Bible contains all the books that have traditionally been accepted by Christians since the Canon of Scripture was recognized by the Synod of Rome in The only complete biblical book among the Dead Sea Scrolls Discussion: The most noticeable differences occur in the number of books included and the order in which they have been arranged.

Both the Jewish Bible and the Hebrew canon in a Protestant Bible (aka Old Testament) contain 39 books, whereas a Catholic Bible contains 46 books in the Old.

Question: Why do Catholic Bibles have some different books than Protestant Bibles. Catholic and Protestant Bibles both have a New Testament that contains the same 27 books. But when it comes to the Old Testament, Catholic and Protestant Bibles differ.

The New Testament canon of the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible are the same with 27 Books. The difference is in the Old Testament. Around BC in Alexandria, the Greek Emperor, Ptolemy II, commissioned 71 Jewish leaders to translate the Jewish scripture into Greek. Not only have whole books (Deuterocanonical) been eliminated and words changed from Protestant versions, some newer Catholic versions have changed the wording.

And words have meaning. For example, Lukethe angel Gabriel, greets Mary with, “Hail, full of grace ”. That is why the Catholic Bible has seven more books than the Protestant bible. Should Catholics read Protestant’s bibles.

By the way, the the only way in which the Catholic and Protestant Bibles differ is that Martin Luther randomly chucked 7 books from the Old Testament during the Protestant Rebellion.

Therefore, the Protestant Bible is incomplete with God's revelation. The seven books included in Catholic Bibles are Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, and Baruch.

Catholic Bibles also include sections in the Books of Esther and Daniel which are not found in Protestant Bibles. These books are called the deuterocanonical books. The Catholic Church believes these books to be inspired by the Holy Spirit. Many Christians are surprised to learn that the Catholic Bible is different from the Bible used by Protestants.
