The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, “the books“) is a collection of sacred texts in Judaism and Christianity. It is a collection of scriptures written at different times by different authors in different locations. Jews and Christians consider the books of the Bible to be a product of divine inspiration or an authoritative record of the relationship between God and humans.
The books which make up the Christian Old Testament differ between the Catholic (Catholic Bible), Orthodox, and Protestant (Protestant Bible) churches, with the Protestant movement accepting only those books contained in the Hebrew Bible, while Catholics and Orthodox have wider canons. A few groups consider particular translations to be divinely inspired, notably the Greek Septuagint and the Aramaic Peshitta.
- Torah (Hebrew Bible) = 24 books
- Protestant Old Testament = 39 books
- Catholic Old Testament = 46 books
- Eastern Orthodox Old Testament = 50 books
