Wikipedia, August 20, 2015 (The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, "the books") is a collection of texts sacred in Judaism and Christianity. There is no single "Bible" and many Bibles with varying contents exist. Various religious traditions have produced different recensions with different selections of texts. These do largely overlap however, creating a common core.)
Britannica online, August 20, 2015 (Bible; Sacred text. Bible, the sacred scriptures of Judaism and Christianity. The Christian Bible consists of the Old Testament and the New Testament, with the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox versions of the Old Testament being slightly larger because of their acceptance of certain books and parts of books considered apocryphal by Protestants. The Jewish Bible includes only the books known to Christians as the Old Testament. The arrangements of the Jewish and Christian canons differ considerably. The Protestant and Roman Catholic arrangements more nearly match one another.)
