Holy Bible

The Christian Bible has two divisions, commonly known as the Old and New Testaments. The Old Testament consists of the books of scripture used among the Jews of Palestine during the Lord’s mortal ministry. The New Testament contains writings belonging to the apostolic age and regarded as having the same sanctity and authority as the Jewish scriptures. The books of the Old Testament are drawn from a national literature extending over many centuries and were written almost entirely in Hebrew, while the books of the New Testament are the work of a single generation and were written mainly in Greek.

There are three translations of the Holy Bible published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are 95 other translations of the Holy Bible identified as preferred by the Church. The following are translations of the Holy Bible published or preferred for use by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
