his is The New Testament, which is the third volume, pages 4 to numbered page 353, with maps and a space for a family tree in the back. It contains 27 books, the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, Corinthians 1, Corinthians II, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians I, Thessalonians II, Timothy I, Timothy II, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, Peter I, Peter II, John I, John II, John III, Jude, and Revelation. It also includes commentaries at the beginning of these books. “When it comes to Bible translations, readability and reliability are what count; and on both counts, the original JERUSALEM BIBLE stands alone. A product of the age of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), THE JERUSALEM BIBLE (published in 1966) was the first truly modern Bible for Catholics. Using definitive original language texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, biblical scholars of L’École Biblique in Jerusalem produced a meticulously accurate, wonderfully readable French translation of the complete canon of Scripture (La Bible de Jérusalem). From this French original came the English edition, edited by renowned Bible scholar Alexander Jones.”
