The Bible breakdown… The Bible is not a novel. It’s a collection of writings that were written by various people of God over the centuries. Some of the Bible writings are recorded history… Some are actual poetry or songs… Some are actual prophecy… Some are actual letters… Some books are very long… Some are very short…
The Bible is made up of 73 Books, but they are not arranged in the order that the events happened. The canon of Sacred Scripture is defined by the Catholic Church as 46 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament.
