The Catholic Roman Synod Decree On The Canon Of Sacred Scriptures

Whether they accept it or not Protestants relied on the authority of the Catholic Church to know which scriptures are part of the Canon of Sacred Scriptures, and which are not. If it weren’t for the Catholic Church we would not have our Bibles today.  
In 382 A.D Pope Damasus gathered the bishops in Rome in order to form the Canon of Sacred Scriptures which includes the Old and New Testament.

The following is the decree of the Roman Synod concerning the Canon of Scripture.


                       Acts of the Roman Synod, 382 A.D

Likewise it has been saud: Now indeed we must treat of the divine Scriptures, what the universal Catholic CHurch accepts and what she ought to shun.

The order of the Old Testament begins here:

Genesis one book, Exodus one book, Leviticus one book, Numbers one book, Deuteronomy one book, Josue Nave one book, Judges one book, Ruth one book, Kings four books, Paralipomenon two books, Psalms one book, Solomon three boks, Proverbs one book, Ecclesiastes one book, Canticle of Cantilcles one book, likewise Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus one book.

The order of the Prophets:

Isaias one book, Jeremias one book, Ginoth, that is with his Lamentations, Ezekiel one book, Daniel one book, Osee one book, Michaes one book, Joel one book, Sophonias one book, Aggeus one book, Zacharias one book, Malachias one book.

The order of history:

Job one book, Tobias one book, Esdras two books,, Machabees two books

Order of the writings of the New Testament:

Gospel according to Matthew one book, Mark one book,

The Espistles of Paul

 To the Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Thessalonians, Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews

Catholic Espistles

Apocalypse of John, Acts of the Apostles

Canonical epistles

Epistle of Peter, James, John, Jude

The facts of history regarding the origin of the Canon of Sacred Scriptures cannot be twisted, tainted or revised. The Sacred Scriptures did not fall down from heaven whole and intact nor was it compiled by the aposltes themselves. 

The Catholic Church is solely responsible for compiling the canon of Scriptures in 383 A.D in the Synod of Rome.  During this time no Protestant denomination ever existed yet, thus they cannot claim of having any hand in the formation of the canon of Sacred Scriptures.
