This question already has an answer here:

I know how many people wrote the Bible, that is, around 40. But what percent of that is Old Testament and what percent is New?

Note: I know I could spend half an hour looking through the lists to split them up but 1. Since this is not quickly answered anywhere, let's make it easier for people who want to know, and 2. Maybe someone here will know off the top of their head.

  • No one knows who wrote Hebrews, but you could add "Author of Hebrews" as a placeholder. Also, it is unlikely that Job wrote the book bearing his name, so I would just put "Author of Job" as another placeholder. Job explicitly asked that his words be written down. If he was capable of doing so himself, would he have asked this? – Paul Chernoch Feb 25 at 17:01
