To locate a commentary on, or a work about the Bible, or even part of it, one should first understand that the Holy Bible is classified by a system intended to assist a reader to locate particular passages. The most common Bible divisions are book (name), chapter (number) and verse (number). Note that scholars have also established different designations to identify books grouped by genre. It is worthwhile to discover if a biblical book belongs to one of these broader categories.
Some common subdivisions:
The Law = Pentateuch = Five Books of Moses = Torah
The Prophets, including the “Twelve”
Epistles of Paul
Epistles of John
Individual books of the Bible are listed below roughly in canonical order with a common abbreviation (if one exists) in brackets, followed by any alternate titles. For the Latin names of Books in the Bible, see the most recent official Latin edition, the Neo-Vulgate:Nova Vulgata Bibliorum Sacrorum.
[HB] = Books in Hebrew Bible followed by name from the Tanakh, unless it is the same.
[DC] = Deutro-Canonical books, sometimes separated into a group called: The Apocrypha. These Old Testament Apocryphal books are canonical for Catholics, but not for most non-Catholic Christians. Therefore, some versions of the Bible leave these books out all together. Search subject: "Bible. Apocrypha"
