How Many Books In The Old Testament And New Testament

How many books are there in the New Testament.

The New Testament was written by 8 men in a period of about 50 years: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, Peter, James, and Jude.At least 4 of these men were disciples of Christ.The Bible deals with the subjects of history, biography, poetry, speeches, proverbs, songs, parables, prophecies, romances, drama, tragedies, sermons, dialog, and ethical teachings.The English Old Testament in the Greek, or Septuagint, version is divided into 4 parts: The Pentateuch, History, Poetry, and Prophecy. The Hebrew is traditionally divided into 3 parts: The Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms. Jesus so referred to it in Luke 24:44.The New Testament has 3 main parts: history (the 4 Gospels and Acts), doctrine (in the Epistles), and prophecy (Revelation).The New Testament may also be grouped into 4 Gospels, one book of history, 21 letters to churches and individuals—or 14 Epistles of Paul and 7 General Epistles—and one prophetic book.That is 27 in all . . .

May Allah smile upon you.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob does smile on me continually. He loves me more than anyone can imagine.The bible has 66 books. 39 in the old covenant and 27 in the new covenant.There are many “versions” many of which are paraphrases and many translations., Many are made so that the truth in them can be more easily received and understood. You see, the English language has changed much since the first translations were made.When was the first translations of your Koran made into english? How many have there been? Would you read the same one now as your parents read to you when you were three?

how does the old testament and new testament differ in Judaism.

i am doing an essay however can not find any information on why the old testament has been changed to the new testament and how Jews no longer follow the old testament.please help me, i need an answer before Thursdaythank you

The Jews don’t believe in the New Testament. And they don’t call the Old Testament that, because it’s only called that by Christians because they have a New Testament. The Jews call it the Tanakh, which is short for Torah (teachings), Nevi’im (prophets) and Ketuvim (writings).Also Jews put a different meaning on scriptures. Christianity is all about belief, because belief is necessary for salvation and salvation is like the central concept in Christianity. Jews don’t believe in salvation, the whole concept doesn’t exist in Judaism. So scriptures are important but not in the same way. For instance, there are no Jews who believe the stories are literaly true, as some Christians do.For many years Jews believed the Torah, the first five books, were written by Moses during the Exodus, dictated by God when Moses visited with him on Mt. Sinai. But I don’t think anyone believes that today.

27 New Testament books are canonical.46 Old Testament books are canonical… to the Orthodox, Roman Catholics, and I think Anglicans. [Not sure Anglicans have sacred literature.]Some Protestants exclude 7 books (& a few other writings) from the Old Testament, because these 7 books are not canonical to Jews (successors of Phariseeism). These 7 excluded books were composed in Greek rather than Hebrew.

  27. ** Isaiah 9:5 − The Hebrew Tanakh reads: “For a child has been born to us, a son has been given us and authority has settled on his shoulders. He has been named “The Mighty God” Isaiah was referring to King Hezekiah, son of Ahaz. Again, in an attempt to insert a Jesus prophecy, the KJV changed the tense from the present to the future, making it, “A child is born, a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God”. [In Hebrew Hezekiah means “the mighty God.”]27 books are from the New Testament, and are the exact same as the Protestant Bible.17. Titus** Isaiah 7:14 − The Hebrew Tanakh says “Therefore, the Lord, of His own, shall give you a sign; behold, the young woman (alma) is with child, and she will bear a son and she shall call his name Immanuel.” **Take note, this was written in the present tense. ** But the Greek Septuagint changed “alma,” saying “Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (Matthew 1:22-23). The church changed the entire verse from present to FUTURE tense and then went further to change the Hebrew alma, meaning a young woman to virgin.66

  37. Here’s a more complete rundown (assuming that you know of the 39 books of the Hebrew canon)46 + 27 = 73 Books total.The council of Hippo in 393 A.D. determined which books were inspired and biblical and established the Canon of the Bible. The Bible contains a total of 72 books or 73 depending on weather the book of lamentations is listed as a separate book. Of these books there are 45 Old testament books and 27 new testament books. Subsequent councils have confirmed this decision and the Council of Trent in 1546 formally canonized all the traditional books of the Bible.

  38. There are a total of 66 books, 39 in the OT and 27 in the NT.

  39. the new testament is the same. the old testament of has more books for catholics, which were taken out by king james and his translator, sir francis bacon.

  40. 26. Jude13. 1 ChroniclesThe word “Nazareth” does not appear anywhere in Hebrew Scriptures. This is even verified by the New Testament Concordance!39. JonahThis Site Might Help You.”True Teachings That Please God”New Testament 27

  41. 37. Amos43. Zephaniah27 NT22. 2 Peter

  42. 3. LukeIf you view the Old Testament as the English equivalent of the Jewish Tanakh, there are 39 books. (The Catholic Bible adds some extra Jewish literature to it, but those books are not recognized as canonical by the Jews or most Protestants.)41. Nahum23. Psalms

  43. 4. Numbers

  44. 46 Old Testament, 27 New Testament = the 73 books of the original Christian Canon of Scripture, which was used by every Christian on earth until a few hundred years ago. The founder of Protestantism decided to trash 7 Old Testament books and 3 New Testament books. The vehement objections of his own followers prevented him from throwing out the writings of the apostles themselves, so the New Testament was spared. So the Protestant Bible is short 7 books compared with the original Christian Bible, and if Luther had his way they would be short 10 books. But the original Christian Church, which compiled the original Christian Bible under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, still uses the full, complete and original Christian Bible.

  45. 16. 2 Timothy

  46. Ooh, I love the Bible!!!!2. Exodus9. Galatians28. Sirach12. 2 Kings66 books

  47. 66 books in the Christian Bible46 OTThe Protestants adopted the Jewish Canon, which was finalized in around 100AD. The Catholics kept the Canon that Greek Jews had used.answer: the OT hasn’t changed into the NTJews NEVER had an “OT” – we have the original, it’s known as the Tanakh. That is what the Christian OT is based on with translation and interpretation difference. To counter a false answer here: Jews still adhere to the commandments that are possible (613 commandments, 300 w/out the Temple)2. King Saul

  48. The most common manuscript used is the Masoretic text, which is primarily Hebrew, with a few portions in Aramaic. Most English translations are based on this, although a few are based on the Septuagint, which was a Greek translation of the Hebrew.17. TobitFor more information, see the New American Bible: NehemiahBut the KJV says:: “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he had put him to grief: when thou shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand”

  49. differences between the Tanakh and the OT?66

  50. protestants only have 66, because Luther took out 7 books from the Old Testament during the reformation 500 years ago.

  51. 27 in the NT.

  52. 1. 46 Or 47 books27

  53.…Number of books…73, plus additions to Daniel and Esther

  54. The Jews follow what we call the Old Testament

  55. ** Psalm 22:16 from the Hebrew Tanakh when correctly translated reads “They surrounded my hands and feet like a lion” (the word “ka’ari clearly means like a lion, as evident from its use in Isaiah 38:13 and other writings, even in the KJV). David was pursued by his enemies and often referred to them as “lions” (see Psalms 7 & 17). Yet, when read out of context the KJV mistranslates: “They pierced my hands and feet.” The passage was altered to indicate Jesus.25. Ecclesiastes39 in the OT.i’ve got faith it became over 3 hundred. the important ingredient is that Jesus is the Messiah. yet as foretold, He became rejected with the aid of the Jews. I could consider Black Sheep dude that the JPA is out of line. An alliance between Jews and pagans, “Why?” you ask. To do exactly precisely what they are doing right here. putting down any communicate approximately Jesus divinity. a touch un-holy alliance right here on YA. ‘They’ pick 22 OT prophesies that Jesus has no longer yet fulfilled. he will upon His return. They conveniently forget approximately approximately all the prophesies He did fulfill. it is secure to assert that He did fulfill a minimum of 163 prophesies.

  56. 15. Ezra66 books- 39 old, 27 new

  57. Sadly, most English translations aren’t faithful to the Hebrew/Aramaic text. There are a number of deviations from it, primarily for doctrinal reasons. For this reason, it’s worthwhile to learn to read Hebrew. (I’ve even seen some Jewish sites that have copied verses from the King James Version, even though they don’t match the Hebrew… not sure if that was laziness or done for doctrinal reasons.)

  58. According to scholars, rabbis and historians, the city of Nazareth did not exist during the writings of Hebrew Scriptures.

  59. Depends on the version. If I recall correctly, the Protestant versions have 66, and the Catholic ones 74.

  60. Modern Jews do not follow the New Testament or recognize it as scripture.
