The Bible Studies
By: Marysa Carini, Block B
Development of Old Testament
- Around 1000 BC: People started writing down these stories
- Most of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew
- Deuterocanonical books established in the present Hebrew canon: Tobit, Judith, First & Second Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, and additions to the books of Esther and Daniel
Inspiration & Inerrancy
- Biblical inspiration: The Holy Spirit inspired humans to write down the stories in The Bible and to edit them, in order for us to understand more about God
- The stories that survived are the ones in which God's people heard God speaking
- Bible Inerrancy: The Bible is without error in matters of faith and morals under the guidance of the Holy Spirit
"Do we read from the Bible at Mass?"
Yes, readings from Scripture are a part of every Mass.
"How can anyone own the copyright on the Bible?"
No one owns the copyright on the Bible. The copyright is held on translations or editions of the Bible.
"What is the difference between a Bible and a Lectionary?"
A lectionary contains the readings and the responsorial psalm assigned for each Mass of the year. The readings are divided by the day or the theme, rather than according to the books of the Bible.
