Timeline of Old Testament Bible  

The Old Testament and New Testament together make up the Christian Biblical canon.
The Old Testament includes the books of the Hebrew Bible, and may include deuterocanonical books. Orthodox Christians, Catholics and Protestants use different Old Testament Biblical canons.

The Protestant Old Testament Bible has 39 books. The Hebrew Bible has the same books, but combines them to total 24 books. Differences between Old Testament canons: the Hebrew Bible; Samaritan Pentateuch; Syriac Peshitta; Latin Vulgate; Greek Septuagint, and Ethiopian Bible are more substantial.
