Why Catholic Bibles have more books than Protestant Bibles

The Catholic Church is entirely responsible for the composition of the Bible, which books are included, as well as the breakdown of the chapters and verses. There are 73 “books” in the Catholic Bible and 66 in the Protestant Bible. Protestants removed seven books because some verses were inconsistent with their theology.

Martin Luther removed Tobit, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach and Baruch. He attempted to remove James and Revelation, but this was rejected by his followers and those two books stayed. Catholics are often accused of adding seven books, but despite this common belief, it is false. Older, pre-Protestant, Catholic translations of the Bible include them.
