What’s in Your Bible?

What's in Your Bible? Find out at BibleStudyMagazine.comIf you got a copy of the first issue of Bible Study Magazine (November-December 2008), you probably saw the super cool canon chart put together by our own Vincent Setterholm (pages 47-48). It nicely compares the Protestant, Ethiopian, Syriac, Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Hebrew, and Samaritan canons and provides lots of helpful explanatory material.

More cool charts and graphs like this are coming in future issues. The January-February issue has a chart from Mike Heiser on the Ten Commandments. To be sure that you don’t miss out on great content like this in the future, be sure to subscribe.

For those of you who missed the canon chart, we’ve made a really cool version of it available on BibleStudyMagazine.com. Check it out, and drop a mention of it on your blog if you find it helpful. Just paste the code from the code box at the bottom of the page into your blog editor.

If you prefer to have this chart in print, you can still pick up a copy of the first issue for only $2.95—or even better, get it for free! All you need to do is write a brief review of Bible Study Magazine on your blog or website or in print. Find out all the details in our previous blog post.

By the way, if you’re looking for a good book on the canon, check out F. F. Bruce’s The Canon of Scripture.


  1. It is a really nice chart! It would be helpful if it included the footnotes and if it was a graphic so that it could be cut and paste for use in handouts. Or a pdf file would be great. Thanks!

    This is really interesting. I’ve obviously heard of the Old Testament Apocrypha but were does logos have the New Testament additional books, 3 Corinthians etc

    I just placed an order for the magazine January 23, 2009). Since, I missed the first issue, would it be possible for you to add that to my order as an additional cost. Thank you.
