The New Jerusalem Bible, as a truly ecumenical bible, gives the reader the complete text of the ancient canon of Scripture, as the Church established it over fifteen centuries ago. Moreover, all biblical texts (including the deutero-canonical books and passages not included in the Hebrew Bible but found in the Greek Septuagint and canonized as Scripture by the Church) are presented in their accepted “Catholic” order - not relegated to an Apocryphal appendix.
