Line 1: Line 1:
The books of the Bible differ in the canons of the Jews, and Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox Christians, although there is overlap. Below is a partial table comparing the canons of these denominations, for both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. (This is a work in progress. I hope to finish the first draft by 05/20).
+
== Tanakh==
 +
A table cell with an asterisk (*) indicates that a book is present but in a different order. Empty cells indicate that a book is absent from that canon; such books are often called ''[[Biblical apocrypha|apocrypha]]'', a term that is sometimes used specifically (and possibly pejoratively) to describe the books in the Catholic canon that are absent from the Protestant Bible; Catholics describe these books as ''[[deuterocanonical books|deuterocanonical]]''.

Tanakh

A table cell with an asterisk (*) indicates that a book is present but in a different order. Empty cells indicate that a book is absent from that canon; such books are often called apocrypha, a term that is sometimes used specifically (and possibly pejoratively) to describe the books in the Catholic canon that are absent from the Protestant Bible; Catholics describe these books as deuterocanonical.

As of 05/20/2007 this table began as a verbatim copy of Wikipedia's Books_of_the_Bible page.
