moderated Looking for a Catholic Bible that I can use with JAWS


Kevin Minor
 

Hi.

 

The subject describes what I want. For those who don’t know, the Bible that the Catholic Church uses has more books in it, and parts of other books have additional material, so the Bibles that I’ve found don’t have all that I want. It would also be nice if it were a study Bible, including narratives of the texts, but not necessary.

 

Thanks in advance

Kevin

Kevin,

As a Catholic I'm very familiar with the versions of the Bible to which you are referring. It contains seven additional books in the Old Testament which were eventually removed in most Protestant Bibles, along with some additional portions of Daniel and Esther. The New Testament is identical.

I haven't looked for downloadable software containing Catholic Bibles or study material although I know that it exists but am not sure how accessible they are.

The Bible Gateway does contain several Catholic editions, including the New American Bible, Revised Edition and the Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition. Go to this page to set your preferences as to what edition you want as your default.

There is a Catholic Bible app I downloaded on my iPhone.

It’s completely accessible.

It’s called - Catholic Bible: Bible with Catholic News and Saint a Day

A tiny postscript or your always well-informed posts. What you say is correct about the New Testament. However, what the Catholic bible calls “The Apocalypse” is called “the book of revelations” in the Protestant version. Apparently, the text is the same.

I was a Biblical Studies major in college.  The extra books David was talking about has nothing to do with the “Apocalypse”.  They are referred to as the Apocrypha by Protestants.

Catholics consider them deuterocanonical And include them in the Old Testament.

Some Protestant Bibles keep them but put them between the Old and New Testaments.

I’m summarizing an article I found on the web here:

The Roman Catholic Council of Trent declared in 1546 that the Deuterocanonical books were indeed divine.

Of these books, Tobias, Judith, the Wisdom of Solomon, Baruch, and Maccabees, remain in the Catholic Bible. First Esdras, Second Esdras, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, Prayer of Manasseh, Prayer of Azariah, and Laodiceans are not today considered part of the Catholic apocrypha.

With one exception, all of these books are considered 'Old Testament'. The apocryphal New Testament 'Letter of Paul to the Laodiceans', was once incorporated in many versions of the Bible. However Laodiceans is now considered just a pastiche of other Epistles, and is omitted from contemporary Bibles.

 

HTH,

One more little tidbit, It is the Book of Revelation, not Revelations.  People often make the mistake of putting an “s” on the End of Revelation.

We’re going far afield from JAWS, but what you say here has nothing to do with what I wrote. I merely pointed out that there is one difference, and only one, between the two versions of the New Testament, and that is the title of one book.

I’m sorry, but you are completely off base.

You clearly have not really researched what you are talking about.

You went down the path of tyring to correct someone with very wrong information, I didn’t.

I just tried to give accurate information.

If you are not open to learning something new, I’m very sorry.

I’m also done with this.

Hi, the jw.org website is very accessible with Jaws, and the free downloadable app is available for Android and iOS and again is very accessible with both TalkBack and VoiceOver.

It doesn’t have any Catholic versions of the Bible, but there are several versions available.

There is also a study Bible dating from 2013 which has a vast amount of footnotes, references, and the like.

The main feature is its easy to understand modern language, and there is a vast amount of languages that it’s available in.

Hope this helps, Jon

There are quite a few websites that offer online versions of various editions of the Catholic Bible.  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=accessible+online+Catholic+Bible 

What suits one person may be entirely unacceptable to another.  It's worth taking a look at a few and deciding for yourself which, if any, meet the exact needs you've got.

You could even knock "accessible" out of the search terms and the results would still likely be so if you're looking at online Bibles.

JW, of course stands for

Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Bible that they use is the New World translation, which has been written to scrub out any reference to Jesus being the Son of God and God himself.  Just be careful, unless that is what you believe.

Hi, the jw.org website is very accessible with Jaws, and the free downloadable app is available for Android and iOS and again is very accessible with both TalkBack and VoiceOver.

It doesn’t have any Catholic versions of the Bible, but there are several versions available.

There is also a study Bible dating from 2013 which has a vast amount of footnotes, references, and the like.

The main feature is its easy to understand modern language, and there is a vast amount of languages that it’s available in.

Hope this helps, Jon
