Welcome to the forum!  Pari Yegak!

Yes, we are Oriental Orthodox ("OO,") and there is a forum here at OCnet where you can discuss OO issues, if you ever wish:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/board,5.0.html

With regard to the Bible used by the Armenian Church, the traditional Armenian Bible, from what I understand, uses the same canon of scripture (list of books) as the Eastern Orthodox do.  If you want it in English there is a new Bible out called the Orthodox Study Bible, which has the traditional canon of the Armenian Church:

Ghazar, on his website has a page dedicated to issues concerning the Bible and the canon of scripture:

With regard to the canon of scripture among the various other OO Churches, it gets a bit confusing, as there is some variation in our practice.  These threads may be helpful to you:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,11816.0.html

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,5410.0.html

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,7886.0.html


Other helpful reading may be:

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pines/7224/Rick/Septuagint/spindex.htm

It's a website about the Septuagint, the manuscript which St. Mesrob primarily used (along with the Pishetta) in translating the Bible into Armenian in the fifth century.  It is because the Armenian Church uses the Septuagint that we have the canon of scripture that we do.
