The Complete Bible

 

Catholic Bibles contain seven more Old Testament (46) books than Protestant Bibles (39). Catholics refer to these seven books as the “deuterocanon” (second canon), while Protestants refer to them as “apocrypha,” a term used pejoratively to describe non-canonical books. Protestants also have shorter versions of Daniel and Esther. Why are there differences?

Catholic Bibles contain all the books that have been traditionally accepted by Christians since Jesus’ time. Protestant Bibles contain all those books, except those rejected by the Protestant Reformers in the 1500’s. The chief reason Protestants rejected these biblical books was because they did not support Protestant doctrines, for example, 2 Maccabees (12:44) supports prayer for the dead. Sirach, supports the Doctrine of free will (15:11-20), and Tobit demonstrates the efficacy of good works (4:10)  The term “canon” means rule or guideline, and in this context means “which books belong in the Bible (and, by implication, which do not).”
