The difference in scriptures Catholic, non-Catholic.


I have a protastant friend who asked me a question about the scriptures. Are there any differences in the new testament from the protestant to the Catholic Bible. I realize there is many translations but I have heard there are missing sections of some books in the protestant Bible. Thank You Jim.


Catholics and Protestants agree on the 27 books contained in the New Testament, however, Protestants removed 7 books from the Old Testament during the reformation. For a detailed explanation see our tract Old Testament Canon:
