The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, ''tà biblía'', "the books") is a collection of texts sacred in Judaism and Christianity. There is no single canonical "Bible": many Bibles have evolved, with overlapping and diverging contents. Various religious traditions have produced different recensions with different selections of texts. These do largely overlap however, creating a common core.
With estimated total sales of over 5 billion copies, the Bible is widely considered to be the best selling book of all time,〔http://online.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424053111903918104576502782310557332〕 has estimated annual sales of 100 million copies, and has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West where the Gutenberg Bible was the first mass-printed book. It was the first book ever printed using movable type.
==Versions of the Bible==
The appropriate term to describe Judaism's scriptures is ''Tanakh'', although the terms ''Bible'' and ''Old Testament'' are commonly used by non-Jews to describe Judaism's scriptures. While there is just one Jewish Bible, collected together and preserved as the sacred books of the Jewish people, the contents of each of the Christian compilations of canonical texts of the Old Testament vary between different Christian traditions. Jewish scripture was (and is) originally written in Hebrew, the Christian Old and New Testaments were originally written in Koine Greek. The Tanakh has 24 books, the various versions of the Old Testament have more and contain the original 24 books of the Tanakh in a different order.
