This video will surely help you out knowing about what actually the book of bible is…

1.Hebrew Bible:

The Hebrew bible is the bible of Judaism. A large part of Old Testament of the Christian bible is comprised of the Hebrew Bible which is also called Tanakh. It is called Tanakh because Tanakh is the acronym of the Greek names of its parts. It is the holy book of the Hebrew and Jews. It contains 24 books
These books are divided into three groups that are:
1.The laws: This includes the 5 books of Moses that are also called the Pentateuch (five scrolls).
2.The Prophets: The second part of the Hebrew bible is about the prophets that were sent to the Israel
3.The Writings: The third part of the Hebrew Bible is the writings which explain the poetry, wisdom, songs and jobs of the Jews.

So these 24 books of the Hebrew bible are included in the old testament of Christian Bible. The books of Old Testament, their names and numbers are different in different Christian denominations.
• The Catholic Bible has 46 books.
• The protestant Bible has 39 books.
• The eastern Orthodox Bible has 49 books.
In its old testament.

2.Deuterocanonical:

Some of the books that are not present in the Hebrew Bible but are present in the Christian Bible are called deuterocanonical

Diversity in the books of bible:

Although, both the Protestants and the Catholics belong to the Christian community but there is a difference in their faith and beliefs. They both follow the same teachings of the bible but there is huge difference regarding the books of their Bible.
From the above lists of books it is clear that there are more books in the old testament of the Catholics bible as compared to the old testament of the Protestant bible. Now a there might a series of the questions arises in the mind of the one who is reading this article that why did some books of bible were accepted and some were rejected by the protestants? Or from where these differences came?
There are number of reasons that why these books were not accepted by the protestants?

The word Canon is derived from a Greek word Kanon which means ruler or standard by which some things is judged. It was a term that was used by the early Christians to judge the books of bible as being the word of God. This term was first applied by St. Athanasius.
For a book to be canonical there has to be two important points:

1.The first was that the book should have a jurisdiction of self-exoneration, means that the book should be clear and free of blame.
2.The second point was the author of a book must be a Man of God. This man of God was a Prophet in case of Old Testament and an Apostle in case of New Testament.

How the books of Old Testament of the Bible were chosen as canonical?
The books of the Old Testament were accepted as canonical only if they fulfil the two requirements that are:

  1. The first one was that the book should have resemblance with the Torah or the Pentateuch of the Hebrew bible.
  2. The second one was these books should have seraphic or Godly officialdom. This means that these books should be inspired by God.
    From this it should be clear that why one of the books of the Bible was doubted to be non canonical in the start? Because this book was thought not to be inspired by God. However it was later accepted as canonical because of the deep providence of God in this book.
    So that’s how the books of the Old Testament were considered canonical, however the books of New Testament were made the part of it after 4 centuries when Jesus wrote them.

The Apocryphal books:

The word Apocrypha means hidden. These books are sometimes called the deuterocanonical books. These deuterocanonical books are 14 in numbers which are placed in a separate section by the Protestants and 7 of these books are included in the old testament of Bible by the Catholics.

bible books

During the reformation period of Protestants in 16th century, Martin Luther expressed his views of being against the apocrypha. The Roman Catholic Church, in reaction of this, convoked a council in Trent in 1547 and they declared that the Apocrypha are canonical and they included these in the Bible. That’s why the Catholics and Protestants disagree over this issue. The Catholics consider these as inspired books while the Protestants thinks that these books are necessary but are not canonical.

Reasons for the rejection and acceptance of apocrypha by the Protestants and Catholics:

In the history it is hard to find that how these books did came the part of the old testament of Bible. But it is said at many books that these extra books came the part of Old Testament when it was translated to Greek language in 250 BC in Egypt. This new translation of Old Testament was named as Septuagint. So it is said that these extra books became the part of the Bible only in the Septuagint while the Hebrew version of the Old Testament didn’t contained it.
Now for acceptance of these books by Catholics and its rejection by Protestants there are number of reasons:

Reasons why Catholics included these books in the old testament:

  1. They believe that the Apocryphal books are canonical because the new testament recites from the Septuagint. Therefore these books should also be in the old testament of the Christian bible

  2. They accepted these books because some of the early church fathers had accepted these as canonical.

  3. The response of the council of Trent in 1547 to the protestants had also given them a reason of canonicity of these books by accepting these books.

  4. They believe that Augustine had believed in the inspiration of these books.

  5. Augustine led two councils named as the hippo council and the council of Carthage, so these councils had also accepted the Apocryphal books.

Reasons why did the protestants rejected the Apocrypha

1 There are certain Doctrines and implementations that are present in the Apocryphal books but in the Holy Bible.

2.There is no citation for the Apocryphal books in the new testament as it has the citation for the other books in old testament because the writings of new testament is related with that of old testament. So non of the writer of new testament has ever made any reference for these books.

3.These books were never the part of the Hebrew scripture and they were always denied by the Jews. There is no evidence that these books were a part of Greek Septuagint.

4 These books were kept in the distinctions by the Catholics as well before the reformation.

5.None of the Churches in the early four centuries of the Christian history had taken it into account. However some of the Fathers had accepted but they were strongly opposed by the others.

6.Some of the books of Apocrypha are immoral like in one of its books Judith.

7.It is true that Augustine had accepted these books but his list is followed by the Catholics properly. He didn’t included the Baruch in his list but is present in the Catholic Bible. Similarly the book named Esdras 1 was present in his list, but is absent in the Catholic bible.

Books of new testament:

GOSPELS:
Every one of the four accounts in the New Testament portrays the life, demise, and restoration of Jesus of Nazareth (the good news of Mark in the first content finishes with the unfilled burial chamber and has no record of the post-revival appearances, yet the void of the burial chamber suggests a restoration). “Gospel” gets from the Old English gōd-spell (once in a while godspel), signifying “uplifting news” or “happy greetings”. The gospel was viewed as the “uplifting news” of the coming Kingdom of Messiah, and the reclamation through the life and passing of Jesus, the focal Christian message. Gospel is Greek word εὐαγγέλιον, euangelion… They were composed between roughly 70 and 100 AD, and were the final results of a long interaction of advancement; all are mysterious, and very likely none are crafted by observers.
The Gospel of Matthew, attributed to the Apostle Matthew. This gospel starts with a lineage of Jesus and an account of his introduction to the world that incorporates a visit from magi and a trip into Egypt, and it closes with the dispatching of the supporters by the restored Jesus.

The Gospel of John, attributed to John the Evangelist. This gospel starts with a philosophical preface and finishes with appearances of the restored Jesus.

Act of Apostles:
The Acts of the Apostles is a story of the witnesses’ service and action after Christ’s demise and revival, from which point it continues and capacities as a spin-off of the Gospel of Luke. Analyzing style, expressiveness, and other proof, present day grant by and large infers that Acts and the Gospel of Luke share a similar creator, Church custom distinguished him as Luke the Evangelist, the partner of Paul, yet most of researchers reject this because of the numerous contrasts among Acts and the genuine Pauline letters. The most likely date of arrangement is around 80–100 AD, albeit a few researchers date it altogether later and there is proof that it was all the while being considerably reconsidered into the second century.
Epistles :

How many books are in the bible?, There are total of 66 of unique blessed books.

Recall experiencing childhood in Sunday School and when we needed to gain proficiency with the books of the Bible. Shockingly every one of these years after the fact I can in any case recount each of the 66 of these books all together. However significant as it very well might be to realize how many books are in the Bible, why simply those books were picked is similarly significant.

I couldn’t say whether you have at any point posed the inquiry how did we get to those books? This interaction of determination was not a choice that was formulated in the personalities of men. What is genuine is that this cycle was truly birthed in the psyche of God. Having somewhat better comprehension of this will assist you with understanding why we have these books in the Bible and why simply those 66 were the ones chosen.

How Many Books Are in the Bible?

The Bible is frequently considered as one book. However, it is really a gathering of 66 unique books composed by 40 distinct writers. These writers were not all associated with one another, most didn’t have any acquaintance with one another on the grounds that these books were composed over a time of around 1500 years.

What makes the Bible so exceptional and extraordinary is that even with this enormous delay between the primary book composed and the last book composed, there is a consistency of thought and informing. There is no other book that can coordinate with that. In spite of the fact that there keeps on being doubters today, this sort of exactness and consistency must be refined by the hand of God.

How Were the Books Decided Upon?

The books in the Bible are viewed as the standard, which are essentially the books that are acknowledged as a feature of Scripture. For the record, there are 39 books remembered for the Old Testament group and 27 books in the New Testament ordinance. The inquiry is how were these books in the Bible picked and why simply those? We should answer this by taking a gander at every confirmation independently.

The Old Testament sacred texts were central to the Jewish religion, or Judaism. These sacred texts were partitioned into three fundamental segments: The Law, The Prophets, and The Writings. They were gathered a smidgen uniquely in contrast to the manner in which you would perceive the Old Testament today, yet they actually contain similar books. For instance, the books of Joshua and Judges were incorporated as among the works of the Prophets, where today they are alluded to additional as chronicled books. Once more, this doesn’t change the informing or authority of these books, it is just their groupings.

Jews perceived the authority of the Hebrew sacred texts nearly from the second they were composed. Consider for example that Moses composed the initial 5 books, which is known as the Law. This was the reason for all Hebrew life and culture and was executed when Moses kept in touch with them. You will likewise see that Jesus and other New Testament authors alluded to the Old Testament, in any event, citing from it. This gave further validity to their credibility and authority as the sacred writings or the expression of God.

Reality of the gospel, gospel truth, solid gospel

Sorting out the New Testament

The New Testament went through a marginally unique cycle of being considered as a component of the ordinance of sacred writing. One of the significant contrasts was while the Old Testament was composed principally to one gathering of individuals, the Jews or Hebrews, the New Testament was composed to and for various gatherings of individuals. Among those were both Jewish and Gentile crowds. There were some particular inquiries that were posed about the New Testament books that were vital for them to be remembered for Scripture. Here are a portion of those inquiries or contemplations:

  •   Was it composed by a witness or somebody near a missionary? 
    
  •   Was it in arrangement with what was at that point thought about God or being instructed? 
    
  •   Was it acknowledged all around by the chapels around then? 
    

One more perspective on is the authority of Scripture was dictated by how the new works agreed with the sacred writings that all around had this position. Did what was new line up with what was old? The objective was not to make expert in the works yet just to perceive the power that was at that point there. At last the compositions were motivated by God and this motivation was seen and recognized in the actual works. As we are reminded:

“All Scripture is God-inhaled and is helpful for educating, censuring, adjusting and preparing in exemplary nature” (2 Timothy 3:16).

The objective of canonization of the sacred texts was to search for and see the characteristic of the “breath of God” inside the compositions. That is the reason consistency and adjustment to what in particular has effectively been educated and uncovered made a difference, in light of the fact that at last God is the creator and his message will not change starting with one timeframe then onto the next.

When Was the Bible Compiled into One Book?

While thinking about when the Bible was aggregated into one book you are zeroing in on the New Testament, in light of the fact that the Old Testament was at that point acknowledged as Scripture. While the compositions existed, it truly wasn’t until the fifth century that there was a proportion of agreement on the group of sacred writings.

What we know and fortune as the Bible today was not how the Bible was dispersed from the get-go. Since there were no print machines the Bible must be replicated by hand, which was a huge endeavor, and these duplicates were circulated.

The other test you had when Bibles were first replicated and circulated is that many individuals were unskilled and therefore incapable to peruse. Probably the most punctual bible that was printed and not replicated by hand was the Gutenberg Bible which was imprinted in the 1450’s. There were additionally interpretations of the Bible from the first Greek and Hebrew into English. Among those were the Great Bible in 1539, the Geneva Bible in 1559 and the more notable King James Version in 1611.

For what reason Aren’t Other Books Included?

Despite the fact that we have the group of Scripture today, there were different compositions that were excluded. Among those were the compositions found in The Apocrypha, which are 14 books composed somewhere close to 450 BC and the works of the New Testament. These books can be found as a feature of the Catholic Bible yet are not found in what we would consider a Protestant Bible, which is the Bible you are likely generally acquainted with. Truth be told, on the off chance that you have never seen a Catholic Bible you probably won’t have the foggiest idea about these books existed.

After thought in early church history, it was considered that these books would not be remembered for the ordinance. Despite the fact that they included helpful verifiable data and were not really “downright awful,” they were not considered to have the authority of Scripture. Among the reasons is that neither Jesus, nor the early missionaries at any point alluded to these compositions and there were lessons inside these works that didn’t agree with different bits of Scripture. As we referenced before, this was a significant test due to the solidarity of the lessons of Scripture.

In the event that you search around the web, you may discover individuals who will attempt to project question about the genuineness of the Bible.
