New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (with notes): Bible of Jehovahs Witnesses by AnonymousThe differences between this and other bibles is not in terms of content per se, but in terms of easy and understandable english grammar. It also makes mention of the word-JEHOVAH 7,000 times in the book. Why? Because apparently original bible text referred to the name that many times.
Its translations are made from the Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint-the earliest texts of Bible Literature in order to highlight the authenticity of the scriptures.
My favorite aspect comes in the appendix, when in detail the history, measurements, explanation of the translation work and so much more are rendered.

Outline of Bible-related topics. Varying parts of the Bible are considered to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans by Christians , Jews , Samaritans , and Rastafarians. Those books included in the Bible by a tradition or group are called canonical. A number of Bible canons have evolved, with overlapping and diverging contents. 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.
This teaching is published with the intent of making clear the position of the Church as handed down from the apostolic orthodox and catholic branches of the Church concerning the issue of sola scriptura. While we have the greatest love for our Protestant brethren, we never the less feel it is our tutelary responsibility to share the Apostolic thinking of the Church in regard to the Sacred Scriptures and the oral tradition of the ancient apostolic Church. The Protestant doctrine of sola scriptura -- that the Bible alone -- is a Christian's authority in matters of faith and morals -- was one of the central tenets on which the Reformers broke away from the Orthodox and Catholic Church.

British Broadcasting Corporation Home. By John Drane Last updated The Bible is not just one book, but an entire library, with stories, songs, poetry, letters and history, as well as literature that might more obviously qualify as 'religious'. The Old Testament is the original Hebrew Bible, the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, written at different times between about and BC. The Hebrew Bible has 39 books, written over a long period of time, and is the literary archive of the ancient nation of Israel. It was traditionally arranged in three sections.
The difference is semantics. Believe me, Catholics and protestants have their own language. But when it came to quoting scripture, I was not a very good protestant - or catholic. I can quote verbatium in a lot of cases, but the references escape me. I mean, St.
Catholics along with all other Christians are of the same faith, they also share many of the same common religious practices. The modern bible is not just one book, but many books, stories and historical events that have been compiled into a single volume. These books come from both the Old Testament and the New Testament alike. In the late 4th century, these books, and scriptures, were compiled into a single volume. The Protestant and the Catholic bibles are different from one another today.
