Although these two are used by Christians all over the world, however, there are certain differences between the two. The Catholic Bible is usually considered to be the general name for the Bible used by Christians. Most of the words in the Catholic Bible were written using Latin Vulgate. On the other hand, the King James Bible is one of many other existing versions of the Holy Bible.

This is basically one of the major differences between the two. The King James Bible refers to one of the versions of the Holy Bible, and it was written in the 17th century by the English King James. Although there are other versions of the Holy Bible that were made from the Catholic Bible, it is believed that the King James Bible was the first to be written from the Catholic Bible.

Another difference is that the Catholic Bible contains more Hebrew and Greek words in their actual meanings. In contrast, some of these Hebrew and Greek words were poorly translated by those who wrote the King James Bible.

The most significant difference between the Catholic Bible and King James Bible lies chiefly on the printed words. The King James version that has been known for centuries throughout the world is the one that makes use of what is considered the Old English language. On the opposite side of the coin, the Catholic bible is written in modern-day English.

The Catholic bible stands out because it is the only version that has additional books from the Old Testament. These books are not located in other translations of the bible. In the Catholic bible, you can discover the books called Apocrypha, also referred to as Deuterocanonical, which include Tobit, Maccabees I and II, Judith, Wisdom, and Ecclesiasticus and Baruch. The Christians made these books an official part of the Scripture at the Council of Trent.

There are many versions of the holy word, the Bible, that Christians use. The Catholic Bible and King James Bible are two of those versions. The Catholic Bible is the generic term used to refer to the Christian Bible. The King James Bible is a different version, which King James the First initiated. It was completed in 1611.

This Bible is also known as the KJV or King James Version. The message of the two Bibles are the same, but many believe the King James Bible is easier to read and understand. This is why it is more used today in Christian settings.
