  • 1st off Baptist ARE Christians. (I'm not Baptist.) They are part of the Protestant sect of Religion.....Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, etc.
    Catholics have a section in their bible that is called the Apocrypha. It includes ALL the books of the Protestant bible PLUS the Apocrypha which are other ancient texts that the Catholics and Orthodox (Greek and Russian) churches believe are also God inspired texts of the bible.

  • Baptists (one of many denominations of protestant Christianity) and Catholics are also within the classification of Christianity. I believe Catholics have additional books and footnotes in their Bible.

  • Yes, for the most part. There is a Catholic Bible that includes footnotes and 7 books of the deuterocanonical. Many protestant versions of the Bible include these books in an appendix but the Catholic Bible leaves them in their original order. Many Catholics use other Bibles though,  like the NIV. Really the differences aren't important.

  • Yes & No. The majority of the Bible is translated from the same texts, however the translations are often different. The Catholic Bible then has an additional 7 books which are not in any other Bible translation. So yes, the basic bible is the same, but there are slight differences in every translation, and then each translation will have differences in interpretation from reader to reader or group to group...

  • Protestants usually use the King James Version, but the Bible read at Mass is the New American Bible.


    The New Catholic Answer Bible is without a doubt the most amazing NAB Bible you will ever read!  It is so easy to understand with an incredible amount of footnotes, and answers inserts that reference to both the Bible and the Catechism - it's amazing and WELL WORTH the price!
