      The 73 canonical books of Holy Scripture.

      Protestant usually claim 66 books in their bible.
      Catholics say 73.
      Greek Orthodox and Slavonic Orthodox say 76*.
      Georgian Orthodox say 78*.
      Syriac Orthodox say 78* but with 4 differences between them as Georgians.

      * - according to Wikipedia.

      I will stick with the 73 of the Catholic bible. So my bible is bigger than a typical Protestant bible, smaller than a bible from the Greeek Orthodox and Slavonic Orthodox, Georgian Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, and the Ethopian Orthodox have a larger canon (83 or so I think) which makes theirs bigger than everybody else's.

      The Catholic list is
      • Of the Old Testament: the five books of Moses, to wit, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Josue, Judges, Ruth, four books of Kings, two of Paralipomenon, the first book of Esdras, and the second which is entitled Nehemias; Tobias, Judith, Esther, Job, the Davidical Psalter, consisting of a hundred and fifty psalms; the Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the Canticle of Canticles, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Isaias, Jeremias, with Baruch; Ezechiel, Daniel; the twelve minor prophets, to wit, Osee, Joel, Amos, Abdias, Jonas, Micheas, Nahum, Habacuc, Sophonias, Aggaeus, Zacharias, Malachias; two books of the Machabees, the first and the second.
      • Of the New Testament: the four Gospels, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; the Acts of the Apostles written by Luke the Evangelist; fourteen epistles of Paul the apostle, (one) to the Romans, two to the Corinthians, (one) to the Galatians, to the Ephesians, to the Philippians, to the Colossians, two to the Thessalonians, two to Timothy, (one) to Titus, to Philemon, to the Hebrews; two of Peter the apostle, three of John the apostle, one of the apostle James, one of Jude the apostle, and the Apocalypse of John the apostle. But if any one receive not, as sacred and canonical, the said books entire with all their parts, as they have been used to be read in the Catholic Church, and as they are contained in the old Latin vulgate edition; and knowingly and deliberately contemn the traditions aforesaid; let him be anathema.


      I never liked 66 much, it is too close to 666 I reckon.

      Saint Jude, author of the new testament letter.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      i read 40 books from the TaNaKh and 27 from The testimony of fulfillment of the Lords promises.[ie new testament(Brit Chadashah]

      The only difference ive seen comparing the TaNaKh and a king james version is the ommission of this Book from the TaNaKh
      https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/16550

      Curiously there is little spoken of these days concerning what is rendered unto the Lord and what is rendered unto caesar or pontif.

      There's something disturbingly "beastly" about 66.
