- Jun 6, 2004I wanted to know what is considered the canon for the
old testament for the Syrian Orthodox Church.
The Protestant Bibles contain 39 books; Catholic
Bibles contain 46 books (includes Macabees 1 & 2, and
other books); finally, the Eastern Orthodox Bibles
contain more books than the Catholic Bibles (includes
Maccabees 3, an extra Psalm, and other books).
Does the Syrian Orthodox Church maintain one of the
above canons in its Bible, or does in have a different
canon? Also, would anyone know if this canon is also
followed by the other Oriental Orthodox Churches?
Finally, is their a specific English translation of
the Bible that the Church considers ideal?
