A Little History Lesson....

Did you know that the first translation of the King James Version that came out in 1611 included the Deuterocanonical books?

Well, they did.

Did you also know that the Deuterocanonical books have always been a part of the Catholic canon and that they are included in the Septuagint, which is what Jesus and His Apostles quote from in the New Testament?

Yup, it's true.

And here's the kicker....guess what version of the Bible the King James Version was largely based upon?

The Douay-Rheims Bible! A Catholic translation that was translated from the Latin Vulgate into English in the years 1582 and 1609.

Those are the facts. Check 'em out for yourself!
