My thoughts were spurred by the 1 Timothy 3v1 thread. Which is the correct translation. 1 John 5v12 (KJV 1679) He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. or 1 John 5v12 (KJV 1611) Hee that hath the Sonne, hath life; and hee that hath not the Sonne, hath not life. Is the 1611 clear about who Jesus is the Son of? Should we accept "of God" or leave it off? Which edition captured the exact translation?
