THE KJV TRANSLATORS INSERTED 8,422 “VARIANTS INTO THE TEXT” OF THE KJV BIBLE. SO WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

Summary: The King James Version has over 8,000 variants — comprised of marginal notes explaining alternatives to the meaning of the Hebrew or Greek words used in the source texts for the Bible. The KJV ONLY advocates argue that there is no question that the English words selected are guaranteed by the Holy Spirit to…

WHAT SOURCE CONFIRMS THE KJV OLD TESTAMENT HAS ERRORS? THE KJV NEW TESTAMENT!

The following article contains information from my latest book, Rebooting the Bible. Corrupting the Tanakh to Reduce Jewish Conversions to Christianity Only a few short years after the destruction of Herod’s Temple, the rabbis (aka “sages”) formed an instruction academy in the village of Jamnia (outside of today’s Tel Aviv), allegedly with permission directly from…

THE RABBIS CORRUPTED THEIR OWN BIBLE IN THE FIRST CENTURY?

This post includes a letter originating in the United Kingdom from a supportive evangelist there.  It also includes the interview I did 3 days ago on the Rabbis corrupting the Tanakh circa 100 A.D., to reduce the number of Jews converting to Christianity and to create a new Greek Old Testament to replace the Septuagint…

THE 47 SCHOLARS WHO TRANSLATED THE SCRIPTURES AND CREATED THE KING JAMES VERSION TELL US WHAT WE SHOULD BELIEVE ABOUT THIS BIBLE

THE KING JAMES BIBLE PREFACE: AN AFFIRMATION OF THE PREMISES HELD BY ITS 47 TRANSLATORS. This post is taken from Appendix 1 of REBOOTING THE BIBLE.  My assumption:  It matters what the 47 scholars who did the translating from Hebrew and Greek into the King James Version asserted about their work.  If they acclaimed it…

IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE AN INSPIRED TRANSLATION, MORE ACCURATE THAN THE ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHS IN HEBREW AND GREEK?

Within evangelicalism is a sizeable group of believers who assert that the King James Version (KJV) is the only version of the Bible that should be used by Bible-believing Christians.  They argue this point for a number of reasons which we will explore in a series of posts over the next week or two.  The…

ALTERNATVE HISTORY AND THE ORIGIN OF HOMO SAPIENS

Depending upon what we believe about the possibility we aren’t the first highly advanced civilization on this blue globe – the third rock from the sun – we need to consider artifacts from pre-history with more than a little respect. (This article is drawn from the INTRODUCTION to Rebooting the Bible, Part 1) Admittedly, pop-archeology…

COMMENDATION FROM DR. WILLIAM DOUBEK, THEOLOGIAN, FOR MY NEWEST BOOK, REBOOTING THE BIBLE

              I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inherent Word of God. Since my earliest days at the Seminary, I was taught to believe this. What a lot of laity do not truly understand is that that is true for the original autographs. Current translations often contain errors due to the biases of…

WHEN DID THE BIBLE’S MOST ANCIENT STORIES TAKE PLACE?

The Chronology of Genesis Is Important to Its Truthfulness of the Bible It’s a question most of us who study the Bible want to know. “When did the stories of Genesis take place?” Specifically, we want to ask many questions related to the events of Genesis. And this topic is important. The “historicity” of these…

DO WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE TEACHES TRUE HISTORY, ALL THE WAY BACK TO GENESIS 1?

THE TOPIC IS THE BIBLE’S HISTORICAL ACCURACY: WHETHER ITS OLDEST STORIES ARE TRUE HISTORY.   “History would be a wonderful thing, if only it were true” (Leo Tolstoy). Why We Need to Reboot the Bible When it comes to the question of origins, Christians believe that we have the inside track in this quest. And…

IS AN INERRANT KING JAMES BIBLE HOW GOD PRESERVES HIS WORD FOR US?

IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE THE ONLY BIBLE THAT PRESENTS GOD’S WORD? For some, the mandatory usage of The King James Bible is a hedge against secularism and apostasy. In our world today, many conservative churches continue to argue vehemently that the KJV is the only trustworthy source, for it is the only Bible deemed to…
