Re: Re: BIBLE
This whole section is a quote, but the quotation marks did not come out properly:
"Roman Catholic editions of the Bible include the Apocryphal books within the Old Testament. They are mingled in with the true books of scripture. However, the English Protestants changed this practice beginning in the sixteenth century. The English translation by Myles Coverdale (1535) was the first Bible to separate the Apocryphal books from the text of the Old Testament. He explained his approach to these books in an appendix which states in part:
"These books (good reader) which be called Apocrypha, are not judged among the doctors to be of like reputation with the other scripture?And the chief cause thereof is this: there be many places in them, that seem to be repugnant unto the open and manifest truth in the other books of the Bible."
