The canonical list of the Books of the Bible differs among Jews, and Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox Christians, even though there is a great deal of overlap. Below a table is presented to compare the canons of these denominations (other faiths are not currently included) for both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. A detailed discussion of the differences is found in the article on Biblical canon. Protestantism is one of three main groups within Christianity. ...

The books included by the Roman Catholic Church are universally included in the eastern canons. The Eastern Orthodox Church is the second largest Christian organization in the world (or third if one sees Protestantism as a single entity). ... The term Oriental Orthodoxy refers to the churches of Eastern Christian traditions that keeps the faith of only the first three ecumenical councils of the undivided Church - the councils of Nicea, Constantinople and Ephesus. ...

Tanakh/Old Testament

Table cells with an asterisk (*) indicate that a book is present, but in a different order. Empty table cells indicate that a book is absent from the relevant canon. Such books are often referred to as apocrypha. The term "Apocrypha" is sometimes used to refer specifically (and possibly pejoratively) to those books in the Catholic canon that are absent from the Protestant Bible; Catholics refer to those books as deuterocanonical. Apocrypha (from the Greek word απόκρυφα meaning those having been hidden away[1]) are texts of uncertain authenticity or writings where the authorship is questioned. ... The deuterocanonical books are the books that Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, Ethiopian Orthodoxy, and Oriental Orthodoxy include in the Old Testament that were not part of the Jewish Tanakh. ...

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church has a few additional books in its canon: Jubilees, Book of Enoch, the Shepherd of Hermas, 1 Clement, Acts of Paul, and some uniquely Ethiopian books. There is a matter of some controversy as to what constitutes "canon" in this religious body. The Peshitta excludes 2-3 John, 2 Peter, Jude, and Revelation, but Bibles of the modern Syriac Orthodox Church includes later translations of those books.
