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 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…

PROOF FOR THE SEPTUAGINT’S SUPREMACY – Video

My new book, REBOOTING THE BIBLE, was a quest of research spurred by the work of a genius Aussie polymath, Barry Setterfield.  This new 30-minute video by Setterfield provides a graphic presentation supporting several of my key tenets. It’s a powerful piece. I am very pleased to share this video by Barry Setterfield.  He surfaces…

ARE YOU A FUNDAMENTALIST OR AN EVANGELICAL?

WHY ARE SOME CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS OPEN-MINDED WHILE OTHERS AREN’T? How easily are you threatened by another person of faith in Christ who believes something different than you do?  For instance, “How old is the earth?”   The two terms, evangelical and fundamentalist, mean different things to different people.  There is considerable history going back 200-400…

Interview: The Corruption of the Primeval Chronology of the Bible

WHY DID RABBIS CHANGE THE BIBLE’S CHRONOLOGY? This past Monday night, I was the guest of Chad Schafer of Disputed Lands for Part 3 of “drill down” sessions on Rebooting the Bible. We take it deliberately throughout his Internet show to cover why and how the Bible (i.e., the Masoretic Text) was changed about 100-110…
