Misinformed Protestants claim the Catholic Church “added” 7 books to the Bible(Sirach,Baruch,Judith,Tobit,Wisdom,1&2 Maccabees, as well as parts of Esther&Daniel).Protestant Bibles contain 66 books. They say life in the early Church and its writings are not Sacred Scripture. Church history shows The Catholic Church declared which writings were inspired and compiled them into what would become known as “The Bible”. Here is a timeline of the history of Scriptures to prove it!
1 MACCABEES 3:48 AND LAID OPEN THE BOOK OF THE LAW; WHEREIN THE HEATHEN HAD SOUGHT TO PAINT THE LIKENESS OF THEIR IMAGES... Lamentations 4:8 & 5:10 , Jeremiah 8:21, Jeremiah 14:2 SONG OF SOLOMON 1:5-6 Job 30:30, Revelations 1:14-15 Daniel 10:5-6 Daniel 7:9
2 Maccabees 7:22 22I cannot tell how you came into my wombe: for I neither gaue you breath, nor life, neither was it I that formed the mēbers of euery one of you. 23But doubtlesse the Creator of the world, who formed the generation of man, and found out the beginning of all things, wil also of his owne mercy giue you breath, and life againe, as you now regard not your owne selues for his Lawes sake.
