    Hi everyone. I have read that the King James Version of the Bible used superior texts. Is this true?

    Its all opinion. I think the texts behind the KJV are superior, but godly men disagree.

    There are several English translations that are based on the same original language texts on which the KJV is said to be based. Some examples include the 1560 Geneva Bible, the 1833 revision of the KJV by Noah Webster, the 1842 revision of the KJV by Baptists and others, the NKJV, the Modern KJV, the 1994 KJ21, the 1998 Third Millennium Bible, the KJ2000. The 1560 edition of the Geneva Bible is in print again.

    It's a guess, at best, if we don't TRUST GOD to have made His word available to us as HE chose.
