The King James Version of the Bible is a great translation and has helped countless thousands of people to find and know God, to receive his gift of salvation, and to effectively serve him and his people. The Bible was beautifully written by some of the best scholars of the day and its reputation as fine literature is deserved. Some Christians and churches are so enamoured with the KJV that they refuse to use, or give credit to, any other translation. The stance of these Christians has been referred to as King-James-Onlyism. The KJV is an excellent English Bible and if you can easily understand it there is no real reason to change to another translation.
King James believed that a single, authorized version was a political and social necessity. He hoped this book would hold together the warring factions of the Church of England and the Puritans that threatened to tear apart both church and country. Most of the translators, however, were clergymen belonging to the Church of England, but at least some had Puritan sympathies.
He disliked the Geneva Bible, the Bible used by the Puritans, because he believed that some of the comments in the margin notes were seditious and did not show enough respect for kings.
King James favoured the hierarchical structure of the Church of England and wanted the new translation to use words that supported a bishop-led hierarchy.
Some believed that the Greek language of the NT was a unique, Spirit-inspired dialect. This larger collection includes many more ancient Greek manuscripts than were available to Erasmus. A few of these manuscripts date from as early as the third century, which makes them much closer to the date that the New Testament books and letters were written by the biblical authors.
While not a necessarily shortcoming, the version, and all other editions of the KJV that were published for the next fifty years, contained the Apocrypha.
Protestant Christians do not regard the apocryphal books as uniquely inspired and authoritative. The edition was the first edition of the KJV that did not include these extra books. This is a critical text that takes into consideration all known Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, as well as New Testament quotations from early church fathers and from ancient lectionaries.
Another criticism of newer translations is that some words and phrases, and even a few passages, that are included in the KJV, are absent in newer translations. These are not omissions. These additions are absent in the more ancient Greek manuscripts. Most modern translations still acknowledge the traditional additions in some way: in margin notes, in footnotes, or they are printed in a different font, etc. More about the additional verses in the KJV here. See also the video below.
The King James Version is an excellent translation, but many of the recent English translations are better. Most of the other, better-known English translations are fine too.
It is most important that we read a Bible that we can understand. The New Testament was originally written in common, everyday Greek—a language that almost everyone in the Roman Empire the world of the New Testament could easily understand. We need modern English translations of the Bible that modern audiences can easily understand. And a note beside 2 Chronicles 15 criticized King Asa for not executing his idol-worshipping mother.
Miller and Robert V. It was significantly different from Classical Greek. Some hypothesized that it was a combination of Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. But studies of Greek papyri found in Egypt over the past one hundred years have shown that this language was the language of the everyday people. But now we have numerous letters, business receipts, census statements, novels, and other writings written in Koine.
Furthermore, among the discoveries were ancient manuscripts of biblical texts that were older than those used to create Erasmus Greek text that became the Textus Receptus. He dedicated the first edition of his Greek New Testament to the Pope. John 3: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
