Those books included in the Bible by a tradition or group are called canonical, indicating
that the tradition/group views the collection as the true representation of God's word and
will. A number of Biblical canons have evolved, with overlapping and diverging contents
from denomination to denomination. The Hebrew Bible overlaps with the Greek Septuagint
and the Christian Old Testament. The Christian New Testament is a collection of writings by
early Christians, believed to be mostly Jewish disciples of Christ, written in first-century
Koine Greek. Among Christian denominations there is some disagreement about what
should be included in the canon, primarily about the biblical apocrypha, a list of works that
are regarded with varying levels of respect.
Attitudes towards the Bible also differ among Christian groups. Roman Catholics, high church
Anglicans, Methodists and Eastern Orthodox Christians stress the harmony and importance of
both the Bible and sacred tradition, while many Protestant churches focus on the idea of sola
scriptura, or scripture alone. This concept rose to prominence during the Reformation, and
many denominations today support the use of the Bible as the only infallible source of
Christian teaching. Others though, advance the concept of prima scriptura in contrast.
The Bible has had a massive influence on literature and history, especially in the Western
world, where the Gutenberg Bible was the first book printed using movable type. According
to the March 2007 edition of Time, the Bible "has done more to shape literature, history,
entertainment, and culture than any book ever written. Its influence on world history is
unparalleled, and shows no signs of abating." With estimated total sales of over 5 billion
copies, it is widely considered to be the best-selling book of all time. As of the 2000s, it
sells approximately 100 million copies annually.
Some texts are found in the Septuagint but are not present in the Hebrew. These additional
books are Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Wisdom of Jesus son of Sirach, Baruch, the
Letter of Jeremiah (which later became chapter 6 of Baruch in the Vulgate), additions to
Daniel (The Prayer of Azarias, the Song of the Three Children, Susanna and Bel and the
Dragon), additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, 3 Maccabees, 4 Maccabees,
1 Esdras, Odes, including the Prayer of Manasseh, the Psalms of Solomon, and Psalm 151.
Some books that are set apart in the Masoretic Text are grouped together. For example,
the Books of Samuel and the Books of Kings are in the LXX one book in four parts called
"Of Reigns". In LXX, the Books of Chronicles supplement Reigns and it is called
Paralipomenon (Παραλειπομένων – things left out). The Septuagint organizes the minor
prophets as twelve parts of one Book of Twelve. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible
The Bible (from Koine Greek tà biblía, "the books") is a collection
of religious texts or scriptures sacred to Christians, Jews,
Samaritans, Rastafari and others. They generally consider the Bible
to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship
between God and humans. The Bible appears in the form of an
anthology, a compilation of texts of a variety of forms that are all
linked by the belief that they collectively contain the word of God.
These texts include theologically-focused historical accounts, hymns,
parables, didactic letters, erotica, sermons, poetry, and prophecies.
