      Dear Jim,
      I think that may have been this page of mine, that you mention:

      If direct quotation of an Old Testament book by the New Testament
      authors is necessary for it to be considered canonical, then there are
      a number of books commonly considered canonical which aren't.

      The Coptic and Macedonian Orthodox Churches do not use English
      continuous text Bible translations, but read from lectionary texts
      based on original language lectionaries, which would be in Coptic
      and/or Arabic, and in Slavonic respectively. So far as I know, the
      Slavonic Bible has never been translated into English. The Coptic
      Lectionary has been translated into English, but it is a multivolume
      set which is not inexpensive.
