  • Depends on which Bible you are using. Protestant Bible has 66 books total and the Catholic Bible has 73 total.

    73 sounds like adding to the scriptures if you ask me

    No, the 73 were there first. King James took out the ones that inconvenienced him.

    Yeah it might sound like that until you do a little research and see that it's actually the other way around, those extra 7 books were omitted from the Protestant Bible.

  • Depending on which version you could have either 66 or 73. The generally accepted BIBLE that you find in Hotel rooms has 66.

  • All bible included 73 books in them until 1825 when the Edinburgh Committee of the British Foreign Bible Society excised seven books from the OT (1 and 2 Maccabees, Sirach, Wisdom, Baruch, Tobit, and Judith). Catholic bibles continue to include 73 books.
