    Not only are there seven extra books, there are also extra books and verses in some of the books that Protestant Bibles contain, especially Daniel All the extra books and chapters are in the Old Testament. The Catholic New Testament is essentially the same as Protestant Bibles.

    And for you don't change the KJV people, the KJV has been changed numerous times since the original 1611 version came out. The last major change was when the extra books from the Roman Catholic Bible were removed from the KJV. That happened sometime in the 1700s, if I remember correctly.

    During the first 20 years or so after the KJV came out there, were also numerous changes made to it. The authors of the KJV never made any claim to be inspired, despite what lot of people today believe.

    The extra books and chapters are considered valuably to study, even if they aren't conical. Actually some of them are quite interesting and provide extra Biblical information about what happened during the 400 years that the Protestant Bible goes silent, between the Old Testament and the New Testament.

    BTW I'm not Roman Catholic, I just study the Bible a lot.

    The book of Enoch which you won't find in any Bible is an interesting read.

    Yes.

    But realize there are many good reasons Enoch didn't make it into the Bible.

    There are a large number of books which didn't make it into either the Old testament or New Testament. They are available online or in many good Bible book stores. I have several volumes of these type books.

    But most of these books are trash, especially the Gnostic books. And I wouldn't recommend most people reading them, unless you are exceptionally well grounded in the faith and the Bible.

    There are four (4) Biblical readings at every Mass.

    The churches I’ve attended for the last 30 years have had adult religious education programs for several months out the year which encourages Biblical based religious study.

    A lot of fake info in this thread about the RC Church.

    My wife teaches Bible study at church - 90 minute weekly classes, fall and spring. No priest or nuns involved. Over the years they have covered Matthew, Luke, Acts, James, Peter, Isaiah, Revelations, the Bible time line and a few other chapters.

    Yes, lay Catholics read the Bible and have lively discussions as to what it all means.

    From the actual Wiki article itself:

    There is no record of any discussion of the biblical canon at the council.[76] The development of the biblical canon was nearly complete (with exceptions known as the Antilegomena, written texts whose authenticity or value is disputed) by the time the Muratorian fragment was written.[77]


    And Wiki is no authority on Church History. Don’t just parrot the typical secularist argument about the canon which is just bad history.

    Never said they didn't. Many do including me. Attended Catholic schools, attended mass regularly (even some weekdays) and raised and educated my children in the faith. Scandals in the church led me to study Christian denominations and I find myself now more aligned with the Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod) and its teachings. My children never studied the Bible in school during 12-years of Catholic education. They did receive a fine education. They studied the Catechism of the Catholic Church not scripture. I didn't say Catholics don't read the Bible.

    Who wrote these books and why were they even written? Just curious, why do you put a lot of time studying the bible? Are you in the ministry?

    Let me know if you want this one:

    619195270.jpg

    6"x9" (3" thick).

    Just had it offered to me this morning by friends who know I'm a biblical languages guy who also likes to have one of every translation. I'll have it in hand tomorrow, but I don't need this one.

    PM if you want it. Otherwise it will eventually find its way to a prison ministry with a box of other bibles.

    Your movement towards the Lutheran church is a lot like a friend of mine. Long time Catholic from a Catholic family. Now in a Lutheran church.

    Ask your local Catholic Church or a member of the Knights of Columbus.

    I bought one off of Amazon a few years ago. They don't sell it anymore or I would link it. I am not a church goer but doesn't the house of prayer have some to sell or give to those that want to read the good word?
