What’s in your Bible?

Ran across an interesting chart that shows visually the differences in the content of the Bible according to the Samaritan, Hebrew, Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Syriac, Ethiopian, and Protestant traditions:

The differences, as one might expect, are mainly among the “Apocrypha,” “Deuterocanonical,” or “Inter-Testamental” books, but look also at “The Acts of Paul and Thecla,” “3 Corinthians,” or “The Book of the Covenant.”

The chart only compares content, and does not describe the order in which the books are placed, which differs greatly between the Jewish and Christian traditions. It all goes to show that when you talk about “the Bible,” you might give a little thought to “which one?”
