Seriously Clay ...And you ARE the one,who takes the most posts,from us because you answer more ..<quoted text>
I'm sorry your confused. I gave enough info for you to go on if you're interested in searching it yourself.
Google when the OT Jewish canon came into an agreement by the various Jewish sects.
The Jews were not unanimous on the canon until after Jesus was crucified and rose.
This means that Luther and the reformers chose to accept the canon declared by post Christian Jews.
But really ...unless It's,fine one of you Saud YOUR SCRIPTURE ..meaning one of your clergy wrote it in a basement .
If the Gospels,are TRue..the letter from Paul authentic ...
If the history if the Jews,is,true ..the,Prophets,correctly quoted
I'm fine with what I read in it . AND THEY DO NOT BELONG tO THE RCC ALONE ..
Whatever Apocryphal books are in your bible ..great if hey inspire you .
The rest of the bible says the same in your bible and mine ...OURS ..he BODY OF BELIEVERS,...the CHURCH
And,addressing Surach ...Well JESUS IS IN EFFEXT THE AUTHOR if the BOOKS...any actual quotes were,originally from Him
And only used by Him to show,truth to he people who knew,the,law and the prophets,
For any of His teachings,He used parables HE MADE UP....
Any words,in a,prayer to God the,FATHER WERE HIS ALONE .
