The Bible is the book of the Church; she is not the
of the Bible.
It was the Church--her leadership, faithful
the authority of the Spirit of Truth which
discovered the books
inspired by God in their writing. The Church did not
the canon, she discerned the canon.
Fixed canons of the Old and New Testaments, hence
were not known much before the end of the 2nd and
Catholic Christians together with Protestant and
Christians hold the same canon of the New Testament,
all having been originally written in the Greek language.
Catholic Christians accept the longer Old Testament canon,
from the Greek Septuagint (LXX) translation of
the Alexandrian Canon.
