Most of us, both Protestant and Catholic are well aware that Protestants do not consider the deuterocanonical, also known as apocryphal, books inspired scripture while Catholics do. Most other also probably know that Ester and Daniel are slightly different between the Protestant and Catholic canon of scripture, the Catholics versions being a bit longer.
Here is a quick summary of the above.
Deuterocanonical /Apocryphal books
* Sirach, also called Ben Sira or Ecclesiasticus
* Baruch, including the Letter of Jeremiah
* 1 Maccabees
* 2 Maccabees
Additional Sections in Common books
* Additions to Esther (Esther 10:4-16:24)
* Additions to Daniel:
o Song of the Three cast into the firey furnace (Daniel 3:24-90)
o Story of Susanna (Daniel 13)
o The Idol Bel and the Dragon (Daniel 14)
Putting these differences aside, what other differences between Protestant and Catholic Scripture are there? (Translations aside.) What are the actual textual differences are there between the two Bibles when one looks at the source (Vulgate versus what the Protestants use as source documents.)
I ask this because I vaugley recall that the Lord’s Prayer and some other verses in the Gospels are subtly different. What is the origin of these differences?
As a follow up, what makes one preferable to the other? Are these difference really significant, when we look at Theology as a whole, in the economy of Salvation, either Protestant or Catholic?
I would like to keep this a fairly straightforward and civil discussion. I call upon everyone to be civil and remember that we are all called to love our neighbor. That, I know, is in both Bibles!
