Bible -(1500, 600 BC-1200 AD)

This was done by St. Paul and later Pope Urban I with other missionaries. Pope Urban II called Bible as “Bible” because it also contains scriptures along with the Holy bible itself. While Christian Bible is translated into different languages, Hinduism has several versions and each language has its own translations which are not compatible with each other.
