    Of these 16 references the William Tyndale New Testament had 7 wordings in common with the KJV and 7 in common with the Geneva/NKJ.

    The cases where the wording was the same as the KJV :

    Mark 7:27;Luke 17:6;Acts 11:28;Acts 12:4;Ephesians 1:9;Hebrews 6:8 and 2 Peter 3:9.

    The seven instances where the WTT had the same rendering as the Geneva/NKJ :

    Matt.18:26;Matt. 23:24;Mark 4:12;Acts 7:38;Philemon 1:7;Heb.10:23 and 2 Peter 1:1.

    Two times the WTT had wording which differed from the KJV and Geneva/NKJ :

    Acts 17:4 accompanied
    2 Cor. 3:18 face open

    Alexandrian, Schmalexandrian.

    In the instances quoted by Logos1560 it seems the KJVs are out in left field.

    In a good number of my examples, the renderings mean basically the same thing. In several of these examples, the KJV kept its seeming more archaic rendering from the Bishops' Bible even though the clearer and more up-to-date [at least according to present English] rendering was already available in the Geneva.

    In some examples, the meanings of the renderings is obviously different.

    The Geneva Bible generally receives favorable comments from KJV-only advocates.



    William Bradley, a KJV-only author, wrote: “The translators changed virtually nothing from William Tyndale’s New Testament in the New Testament of the Geneva Bible” (Purified Seven Times, p. 87). Mickey Carter noted that the Geneva “differs from the King James Version only in differing English renderings of the same Greek texts” (Things That Are Different, p. 48). Carter acknowledged that "the Geneva Bible was hated by the Catholic Church" (Ibid.). In addition, Carter asserted that the Geneva Bible “is from the same manuscripts as the King James” (Revival Fires, Sept., 1996, p. 17). Murray, another KJV-only advocate, claimed: "There is not one difference suggested in the Geneva and the KJ Bible" (Authorized KJB Defended, p. 160). Gail Riplinger maintained that the earlier English Bibles such as Tyndale's and the Geneva are "practically identical to the KJV" (Language of the KJB, p. 5). Riplinger stated that the Geneva “follows the traditional text that underlies the King James Version” (Which Bible, p. 51). David Cloud suggested that the earlier English versions such as the Geneva Bible “differed only slightly from the King James Bible” (Bible Version Question/Answer, p. 92). David Loughran, a KJV-only author, wrote: “The Geneva Bible is a true ‘version’ having been translated from the original Hebrew and Greek throughout” (Bible Versions, p. 11). H. D. Williams listed the Geneva Bible as a “literal, verbal plenary translation” (Word-for-Word, p. 121). Robert Sargent referred to it as “a very good translation” (English Bible, p. 197). Peter Ruckman included the Geneva Bible on his good tree that is described at the bottom of the page as “the one, true, infallible, God-breathed Bible” (Bible Babel, p. 82).

    Logos,in your examples from the Old Testament I think William Tyndale only finished Gen.-- Deut. plus the book of Jonah.

    In Genesis 1:28; 28:11 and 37:22 were the same as Geneva/NKJ.(Well,the Tyndale put the past tense form of the word.)

    In Exodus 9:31.

    Deut. 14:15.

    So,out of your 17 citations, the William Tyndale Translation had just 5 in common with the Geneva/NJK.

    Yes, only his Pentateuch and Jonah were published during his lifetime. But remember that it seems that Tyndale did translate more Old Testament books (and this work was entrusted to John Rogers). His translations of the OT through Chronicles would appear posthumously in the Matthew's Bible (and other EETs).

    Yes, there is strong evidence that indicates that the O. T. books Joshua through 2 Chronicles in the 1537 Matthew's Bible were the work of William Tyndale.

    In another thread, stilllearning posted: "But in the same breath, I said that there were many other great Bibles of that time:
    (William Tyndale's Bible), (Miles Coverdale's Bible), (John Wycliffe’s Bible), (The Bishop's Bible), (The Geneva Bible) etc.
    So in the strictest since [sense], I am not really KJVO."

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


    Since you consider the 1560 Geneva Bible to be a "great Bible," does the evidence of the affinity between the 1560 Geneva Bible and the 1982 NKJV suggest that you should consider the NKJV a "great Bible" also?

    The evidence should convince a reasonable-minded person who no longer will remain inconsistent in his claims.
