    The Bible

    The Bible is a collection of sacred texts for Christians. Different denominations may include different books in their canons, in different order. The texts are made in simple English, so that we all can undertand very well.

    The New Testament

    The New Testament consists of 27 books:

    The Bible brings together a very varied collection of writings (accounts of origins, legislative texts, historical accounts, sapiential, prophetic, poetic texts, hagiographies, epistles) the writing of which took place between the eighth century BC. AD and the 2nd century BC. AD for the Old Testament, and the second half of the 1st century, or even the beginning of the 2nd century for the New Testament.

    Most common Protestant canon comprise 39 books; the Catholic canon comprises 46 books; the canons of the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches comprise up to 49 books.

    There are 39 books common to all the Christian canons. They correspond to the 24 books of the Tanakh, with some differences of order, and there are some differences in text. The additional number reflects the splitting of several texts (Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra–Nehemiah, and the Twelve Minor Prophets) into separate books in Christian bibles. The books that are part of the Christian Old Testament but that are not part of the Hebrew canon are sometimes described as deuterocanonical.
