You put 1&2 Kings before 1&2 Samuel. It should be the other way around.

Wisdom, 1,2 Maccabees, Baruch, Tobit, Ecclisiasticus and Judith are the differences, and I didn't know any one of them. Funny to see that these 7 books are also guessed correctly least

I knew a couple of these but mostly because I am interested in history, not so much because I've studied the Catholic Bible. I've read the Bible pretty extensively but mostly various Protestant versions/translations.

I'm Protestant but I keep a New Jerusalem Bible for study purposes so I knew several of the books. Still I missed Wisdom, Baruch, and Ecclesiasticus, and tried to include Bel and the Dragon from the Apocrypha. What really burned me was missing Philippians. I should have known that one.

Many Catholic bible name the books differently, such as 1 Esdras = Ezra. And Revelation is also known in Catholic bibles as Apocalypse. (Once lost a pub quiz because the quizmaster only knew Apocalypse and not Revelation!)

I'm Catholic, and I've heard it called Apocalypse before, but usually not by Catholics. It's usually referred to as "Revelations" or "the Book of Revelations." It could also be a culture/area of the world thing, though.

I saw a Catholic bible with full Esdras's (as well as 3 and 4 Esdras not included here), Apocalypse and naming Joshua as "Jesus Nave". It seems this was a very exceptional bible to have gone full Greek in this way, and not like normal Catholic bibles read in churches or people's homes.

How about I saw your reply to my comment of a year ago (my god, a year!) which was posted only today! What are the chances? (Except the quiz popped up on the frequent list).

This is one of those times when you should do research before claiming something is incorrect. Maccabees is most certainly not in the new testament. It is in the old testament.

Protestants call it the Song of Solomon. Every Catholic Bible I've ever owned has called it Song of Songs, which is a closer translation of the original Hebrew (Shir ha-Shirim) than "Song of Solomon".

Ive learnt the order of the books by doing this quiz over and over again. Just looked at the comments and found out that kings and Samuels are in the wrong order. Brilliant 😡. I thought something was weird when I did the Protestant books quiz and they were the other way around. At least now I know why 🙌

Funny how the bottom five guessed are all from the fake Apocrypha that the Catholics added in to suit their beliefs.
