The history of the Bible is complicated.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen answers the question “How was the Bible formed?”

The Jewish Bible has 24 books. Catholics have 73 books in their Bible. Protestants have 66 books. Ethiopian Orthodox Bibles have 81 books. The Bible of the Greek Orthodox Church has 79 books. Christians don’t agree as to what belongs in the canon of the Bible.
