Q&A.037.THE BIBLE – King James 1611 A.V
This term refers to the King James Authorized Version, the Book that God uses and the Devil hates.
It was originally translated under King James I of England between the years 1604 and 1611. The King James Bible is an English translation from the “Textus Receptus” or “Received Text” of the reformation.
This means that the KJV is supported by NINETY-FIVE PERCENT OF ALL MANUSCRIPT EVIDENCE.
All other translations are based on the remaining five percent of evidence.
Most people (including Bible college professors) have been led to believe that the new translations, such as the ASV, the NIV, the RSV, and the NASV are just revisions of the old King James Bible.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
All new translations are based on the Westcott and Hort Greek Text (wrongly referred to as “THE Greek Text” by people who enjoy playing make-believe). Westcott and Hort were two English “scholars” who spent the late 1800’s communicating with evil spirits and perverting the word of God by fooling around with corrupt Roman Catholic manuscripts. All new translations are based on the work of these two men; so all true Bible-believers avoid the new versions.
The King James Bible is from a whole different text, known as the Byzantine or Syrian type text, which comes from a line of manuscripts that run clear back to Antioch, Syria, which just happens to be where the disciples were first called “Christians” (Acts 11:26). God has honored this text throughout Church History, throughout the Protestant Reformation, and since 1611, He has been honoring the King James Bible by saving millions and millions of lost souls with its preaching and teaching. It is the Book of all Books, because it is the pure and preserved word of God for the English-speaking people.
When you hear someone use this term, or when you hear them use the terms “the Greek text,” or “the original Greek,” or “the original manuscript,” be careful because you have come in contact with someone who spends a great deal of time playing an old children’s game known as make-believe.
There is no such thing as “the Greek text,” and no one living today has ever seen “the original Greek” because it hasn’t existed since it fell apart many many centuries ago. Usually when a man makes reference to “the Greek,” he is having trouble believing what God has already told him in THE ENGLISH. There are over 5000 PIECES of manuscript evidence available, which have been found in different places, but there is no “original manuscript” in existence. No one knows what the “original” says, because no one has it, and no one living today has ever seen it. (See Romans 1:22 for further comment.) Contradictions in Scripture There are none.
There are many APPARENT contradictions in the Bible, but each can be explained with a careful and prayerful study, comparing scripture with scripture.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God (II Tim. 3:16), and God does not inspire contradictions and confusion (I Cor. 14:33).
