Kingsword Press Which Version Is the Bible?

Did you know that the Greek New Testament text historically used down through the centuries by the believing Church has been cast aside and replaced by a radically different Greek text? Nearly everyone has the impression that the difference in wording between modern translations and the 1611 King James Bible, as well as the other older English versions, is mainly due to synonym choices and language changes. Such is not the situation. The outrageous reason is that almost all translations since 1881 have been made from a drastically different Greek text than was used to prepare the older versions. The reason for this dismaying development is that modern textual critics have been seduced into accepting a theory whereby this "minority" text is said to contain older readings than those found in the vast majority. Being supposed older, the "minority" is deemed superior.

This book documents that such is not true and that the traditional majority Greek readings are the preserved origninal biblical text.

In spite of the ecclesiastical and academic politics down through the ages, God has indeed preserved His written word for us today. The question is which translation can I rely upon. This Christian believer grew up on King James and knew it quite well, then switch to the NIV. The NIV never set right, but I was not about to change back to the old English. The result? I suffered that political broadside upon my faith in Jesus Christ for decades. Thanks to Floyd Nolan Jones and his book WHICH VERSION IS THE BIBLE, I am no longer ignorant, but confident about which text is the correct one as a result of his excellent work written into this priceless book.

It seems the use of a version/update of a language not used when God's Word was written down (The Bible) would be seen as a non-starter by anyone. The issue is what does man (hunman being) desire in his flesh?......of course, that's pride in self and the reason for "Original Sin." There is nonthing new under the sun.....men/women want their ears waxed by what they want to hear!

Very thorough book on how the Bible was translated and also the reliability of the old texts from whence it came. I am a strong believer that the KJV is the one true Bible and God's holy word. Dr. Jones'book gives us comparisons of the KJV versus other translations. So much scripture is completely left out of other translations that appear in the KJV. To say that the other translations are also the word of God would say that God is confused on the final word that he wanted us to have. A person will not find scripture in another version that is not presented in the KJV. I already had faith in the KJV, but Dr. Jones has strengthened that faith even further.
