The genealogy and Nativity of Jesus are described in two of the four canonical gospels : the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke .
These books were kept in Catholic Bibles because it is believed that the Bible which Jesus read was a Bible that included the books of the ” Apocrypha ,” the deuterocanonical books. It is known that the most popular Bible at the time of Jesus was the Greek Septuagint version – which includes these extra books.
The central figure in the Old Testament , though not mentioned by name , is Jesus Christ . Jesus explained this to his disciples after his resurrection. Luke tells us that “beginning with Moses and all the Prophets,” Jesus “interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:27).
Several reasons are proposed for the omission of these books from the canon. One is the support for Catholic doctrines such as Purgatory and Prayer for the dead found in 2 Maccabees. Another is that the Westminster Confession of Faith of 1646, during the English Civil War, actually excluded them from the canon.
Mary Magdalene as trusted disciple For its part, the Bible gave no hint that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’s wife . None of the four canonical gospels suggests that sort of relationship, even though they list the women who travel with Jesus and in some cases include their husbands’ names.

The meaning of the name ` Yahweh ‘ has been interpreted as “He Who Makes That Which Has Been Made” or “He Brings into Existence Whatever Exists”, though other interpretations have been offered by many scholars.
In 1604, England’s King James I authorized a new translation of the Bible aimed at settling some thorny religious differences in his kingdom—and solidifying his own power. But in seeking to prove his own supremacy, King James ended up democratizing the Bible instead. King James I of England, 1621.

In the Hebrew Bible (Exodus 3:14), Yahweh , the personal name of God, is revealed directly to Moses .
The name Jesus is derived from the Hebrew name Yeshua /Y’shua, which is based on the Semitic root y-š-ʕ (Hebrew: ישע), meaning “to deliver; to rescue.”
New Testament The mentions in Acts 12:11 and Revelation 22:6 of “his angel ” (the Lord’s angel ) can also be understood as referring either to the angel of the Lord or an angel of the Lord. An angel of the Lord who is mentioned in Luke 1:11 identifies himself as Gabriel in Luke 1:19.
A: There are seven books in the Catholic Bible — Baruch , Judith , 1 and 2 Maccabees , Sirach, Tobit and Wisdom — that are not included in the Protestant version of the Old Testament . These books are referred to as the deuterocanonical books .
Differences from other Christian Bibles Bibles used by Catholics differ in the number and order of books from those typically found in bibles used by Protestants, as Catholic bibles remained unchanged following the Reformation and so retain seven books that were rejected principally by Martin Luther.
Other scholars have postulated that Tobit was excluded from the Jewish Scriptures for a halakhic reason because Raguel, the bride’s father, wrote the marriage document discussed in Tobit 7:13, instead of the bridegroom, as required by Jewish rabbinical law.
