    Who were the Scholars that translated the Books in the Bible and who also decided what books went in

    There seems to be a consensus on Hubpages that the Bible is whole and truth and nothing else. Some Bibles have more books than others.

    The "Protestant" canon agrees more with the very first Bible, The Tanakh, than with the Catholic and Orthodox canons. This is significant because The Tanakh is decidedly older than the Catholic and Orthodox canons making these illegitimate adulterations of the Bible.

    Were you also aware that there are literally ** thousands ** of ancient Bible manuscripts - in the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine - available today in museums the world over? In fact, no other ancient writings are as well attested to as the Bible's. When you compare these manuscripts to modern Bibles it's unmistakable how accurately these render the ancient texts. As such, any fears of tampering or errata are unwarranted.

      That is not what I asked.

      Is there a particular translation of the Bible you're concerned with?

      Perhaps I should repeat what the question was:  Who were the Scholars that translated the Books in the Bible and who also decided what books went in.  I am not concered with any particular book or translation.

      The Bible has been rendered from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine into hundreds and hundreds of different languages. More often than not, those who rendered it into Korean, for instance, were not the same who translated it to Zulu or Arabic.

      Is there some reason wny you cannot answer the specific question that I asked?

      It's too bleary. If you specify which version or language edition of the Bible you're inquiring about it'd be a lot easier to point you in the right direction.

      @Joseph, it is obvious that you are going to go around and around and never answer my specific question.  So lets not cause pple to go "stir" crazy.  It seems that you have a hard time communicating.  I am not asking for any direction from anyone.

      I must say, you have a very peculiar way of asking for help smile

      @Joseph I ask Questions so that other could be inspired to write their own hubs.  That is another aspect of Hubpages and making some pennies.  You wuld know this if you ask around or read HP TOS.  Go write a hub or are you afraid to do so.

    After only half a century here, it is easy to cut through the mush and see that the Bible Books were decided by the political and/or religious leader of the time.

    Kings...you know those men who decide who eats cake or whose head shall be removed. The same ones who have convinced human beings to agree that the miracle and wonder of birth is an act of sin, and that the fresh new bundle of divinity is sinner who is doomed to eternity in a lake of fire. I be-LIE-ved this for most of my life.

    The Creator is not stupid nor a fool.

    The modern Bible and was compiled for 100% control of populations.
    It removes the responsibility from reason, requiring followers to NOT THINK, just believe.

    As I pointed out above, there is a big lie in the middle of believe (Trudell)

      Yes, I have read the Bible over 100 times while teaching it. The Bible for me personally is precious and Jesus is the name I call for Creator. Also read hundreds of other religious works, and books omitted. Creator is not in a box.

      Yes I do believe this to be true.  Some things in that Bible give that away but many do not know it and it is skimmed over in Bible Studies. Thse are wha got me ?ing who and what their agenda was in translating.  KJ messed with it for political.

    My understanding is that it varies. I believe all books are translated and at least in partial states of completion.
    The various sects of religion have decided which books to promote.

    As the others have said, there have been many authorized translations of the same materials. Some of the newer translations are more accurate than the accepted old translations like the King James Version because they are translated from the scrolls found. I'm not making this up because I was taught it in a class in religion when I was a college freshman. One example is the command to avoid sorcery, in which "sorcery" is interpreted as witchcraft. The original Greek word was "pharmacopoeia" which means "pharmaceuticals" or "drugs" in the vernacular.So we are admonished to avoid drugs, and that is why the old-time prophets weren't burned at the stake as witches. There are other examples of inaccuracies in the old translations that have been corrected in the modern-day Bible.
    The Council of Nicea under Constantine organized the many books into the Bible, because the different sects and their leaders were squabbling over which were true. The council also eliminated some that were thought not to be inspired. Later, one of the protestant leaders, I believe it may have been Martin Luther (please correct me if I'm wrong on him) disputed some of the books and removed them from the Protestant Bible as not being relevant or inspired. They are still in the Catholic Bible as the Apocrypha. That is only a very simple explanation because a proper answer is very complicated and would consume more space than allowed.
    I recommend that everyone who has the opportunity take a course in world religion that is not taught by a prejudiced religious group. It is very interesting and enlightening, and the truth is, if taught properly, it shouldn't interfere with anyone's faith.

      Yes, and I didn't take a class.  I did question some things that are in the bible and found out about King James and his treachery and also Constantine before he converted(?) on his deathbed.  Religious Tolerance dot Org is a place to start.

      Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that "everyone" should take a course, but it did come out that way. Today enlightened people can find their own way, but a class in world religions from a theologian will help some people mired in man's religion.

      It couldn't hurt to be more knowledgeable though.  I was told today that I should read a certain translation of said Bible above all others.  NOT going to do that.  I would rather a "whole"some approach.

    Good Question: No such scholars translated the books that went into the Bible. They were writings to various churches from apostles, and servant's as such. The writings are actually dated forward, backwards, forward, backwards in the time of the writings. In other words; something that was written 200 years ago was placed after something that might have been written just 50 years prior.  These townspeople might have suffered greatly; to gain such knowledge.
