    [Dr. Bob Griffin,]
    I have read by you that you use the Scofield Bible in the 1769 version .I have a Scofield and use it now and then .Mine says New Scofield Reference Edition .
    But my question to you is .Are all the Scofields in the 1769 ? Or are some in the 1611 ? Did the versions change that Scofield used through the years or can you get them in different KJ versions now ? Just wondered ? Thanks alot .

    A&I,

    Dr. Bob is away for a time. I believe he will be returning in about a week. I'm sure that he will be glad to address your question when he returns.

    As you are new to the Baptist Board, I want to inform you of posting rule #8.
    As such, I am editing your subject line to read "Scofield Question" instead of "Scofield question for Dr. Bob Griffin!"

    Check the "Introduction" page of the Bible you are using.

    The New Scofield Reference Bible (of 1967) ... "is printed in the text of the Authorized King James Version of 1611, but with certain word changes." It's introduction goes on to describe the need for the change and what they are. (pg.v,vi)

    But that statement is not entirely accurate. The NSRB is NOT an AV1611. It's base text, prior to the updating done by the editors, was the Cambridge edition of 1762. Which is odd seeing the original SRB was based on the Oxford edition of 1769.

    However, the 1762 is more accurate than the 1769, in my opinion, but the best KJV presently in print is the 1873 edition of Scrivener. [​IMG]

    I'm not familiar with the 1873 edition of Scrivener.

    (1) Who sells the 1873 edition of Scrivener?

    (2) What is it called?

    (3) Where can I purchase a copy?

    Thank you!

    I've got a "Today's Parallel Bible" With KJV, NIV, NLT, and NASB in it. It is published by Zondervan and I Got it at Family Bible Bookstore.
    It has the 1873 edition of the KJV. It is done in paragraph style (which took some time to get used to) and what I like about it best is it has the 6,637 marginal notes that were from the 1611 edition. Also it includes all the other marginal notes from all the other editions. There are 473 of those. I had never heard of the 1873 edition until I bought this Bible in October.

    I just noticed something about the 1873 edition. On Hebrews 4:8 where the translators chose the name "Jesus" instead of "Joshua" there is a note from the 1611 edition that says "That is, Joshua " I wonder why they put it in the marginal notes. If they knew it was talking about Joshua, why didn't they just use his name. I know the greek form can be either name, but why not choose the correct one in the first place?

    Sorry for taking so long to respond but we have been on inter-term break. Brother Cassidy is back east preaching somewhere so we all went to Mexico on a missions trip. (When the cats away, the mice will play!) :D

    My 1873 is a KJV STUDY BIBLE by Zondervon. It can be purchased here. KJV STUDY BIBLE
