    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. Catholics refer to these seven books as the.   Catholics have a larger biblical canon. In addition to the 66 books in the Protestant Bible, Catholic Bibles include the Apocrypha, with books like Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccebees, Sirach, and Baruch. Catholic teaching also elevates tradition more than Protestants do. Granted, many evangelicals suffer from ignoring tradition and the wisdom of Author: Kevin Deyoung.

I heard or read somewhere that the Book of Revelation isn’t included in Catholic Bibles, but that they have 73 books instead of the Protest which Protestants know as the ‘Apocryp.   Host: Linda, let me use it a little hockey analogy: you’ve given a really good slap shot at the goalie, let me just put my stick up and tip the puck as it goes by me to ask Dr. Barber to define what Linda means by the deuterocanonical books. Dr. Barber: Well nly there are books in the Catholic Bible that are not in the Protestant Bible, or even in the modern Jewish Bible.

    Moreover, it divides its list of Old Testament books into four (Pentateuch, Historical books, Poetry/Wisdom and Prophets) rather than the three Jewish divisions of the Torah (Pentateuch), Nevi'im (Prophets) and Kethuvim (Writings). As to why the Catholics have more books, it is a matter of ecclesiastical history.   Catholic Bibles contain 46 books in the Old Testament, including seven (Tobit, Judith, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, and Baruch) which were part of an ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible. These books were better known among Greek speaking Jews in the Mediterranean world around the time of Jesus. Today these seven books are.

is the definitive resource for any one who wants to learn more about the rituals, symbols, and traditions that can strengthen our faith every by: 4. The book is, instead, an apologia for many Catholic traditions-the denial of ordinations to women, a celibate clergy, etc.-and addresses the reform issues that currently fracture the Catholic Church.

Protestants, in fact, may be offended by Johnson's frequent reference to them as "separated Christians," a pre-Vatican II term that implies that Catholicism bears no responsibility for Christian disunity/5(16).

As a "cradle" Catholic and mother of 3 small children, I planned and made time this Lent to read Al Kresta's book, Why do Catholics Genuflect. I found it very interesting and helped me to understand the answers to questions about my church that I /5(12).

This book is deceptively titled. It sounds like a book that has explanations about things Catholics do for non-Catholics. But this book is so not that. Non-Catholics probably won't like this book; it is critical of Protestantism and is actually pretty advanced in the sections that it covers.4/5.

Catholic Bibles are known to have more books than Protestant Bibles, and there is a very good reason for this. I'll explain below. First, it's important to note that the New Testament of the Bible is exactly the same between Catholics and Protestants.

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 Source: "The Complete Bible: Why Catholics Have Seven More Books," Faith Facts by Catholics United for the Faith.

First of all, the Catholic Church does not have an “official” viewpoint on the book of Revelation. The closest you’ll come to that is to go to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, go to the back where it has a list of all the scriptural references to the Book of Revelation, and look them up.

For a Catholic, Scripture is not so much a. Why do Catholics believe the Catholic Church is the one true Church, founded 2, years ago by Jesus Christ Himself. The Catholic Church is the only church today that can claim to be the one church founded by Jesus Christ 2, years ago.

Other denominations can trace their origins back to various human founders at a later date in history. Q: Why do Catholics have more books in their Bible.

A: The short answer is because the Catholic Church – following the historic Christian position – bases it’s Old Testament Scripture off of the Greek Septuagint which includes books that are not in Protestant versions of the Bible.

OBJECTOR: The Roman Catholic Church added seven books to the Old Testament at the Council of Trent in the sixteenth century. We Protestants accept thirty-nine books of the Old Testament, all written in Hebrew with a few parts in Aramaic, while you Catholics accept seven additional books, making forty-six.

This is my favorite "Why do Catholics" book, and I have read quite a few, as I was raised Catholic A Guide to the Teachings and Practices of the Catholic Church The Catholic Catechism: A Contemporary Catechism of the Teachings of the Catholic Church A Faith forFile Size: KB.

With this background, we can now address why the Protestant versions of the Bible have less books than the Catholic versions.
