    Copyright and Usage Information

    What is the Third Millennium Bible?

    An updating of the 1611 Authorized Version
    The Third Millennium Bible® (TMB®), New Authorized VersionTM, is an updating of the full and complete text of the Authorized (King James) Version of the Holy Bible, first published in A.D. 1611.

    It is not a new translation, but a careful updating to eliminate obsolete words and archaic spelling by reference to the most complete and definitive modern American dictionary, the Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition, unabridged.

    The traditional language of worship and prayer
    What has been historically known as Biblical English has been retained in this updating. It is readily distinguished from the colloquial language of commerce and the media used in contemporary Bible translations.

    Biblical English is the language which has found its acceptance in Scripture and liturgy for more than 500 years in most of the English-speaking churches throughout the world. Only in the late twentieth century does one find the use of secular English in Bible translations.

    All language relating to gender and theology in the Authorized Version remains unchanged from the original.

    Based on the most traditional, complete text
    The Third Millennium Bible New Testament is based on the traditional Greek New Testament text which was in continual use from the time of the Church Fathers until the last two decades of the nineteenth century, a period of over 1500 years. This traditional text finds support in over 5000 ancient Greek manuscripts, more than any writing in the entire history of literature. By contrast, most contemporary Bibles are supported by a mere handful of ancient Greek manuscripts, which were ignored by the church for more than a millennium.

    Includes the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books
    The Third Millennium Bible includes all the books contained in the 1611 Authorized Version, including its Deuterocanonical Books/Apocrypha. It is the only modern updating which contains all 80 books in the original 1611 Authorized Version. In restoring the Authorized Version's beautiful Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books, the Third Millennium Bible stands in the tradition of the great English-language Bibles of the past, including the Wycliffe Bible (1382), the Coverdale Bible (1535), the Great Bible (1539), the Geneva Bible (1560), the Bishop's Bible (1568), the Douay-Rheims Bible (1609), and the Authorized Version (1611). These beautiful writings were also included in Luther's original Bible, the Latin Vulgate, and the Greek Old Testament used by the Apostolic Church. The Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books in the TMB are: 1 and 2 Esdras, Tobit, Judith, The Rest of Esther, The Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, The Song of the Three Holy Children, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, The Prayer of Manasseh, 1 and 2 Maccabees.

    A Bible for all Christians
    The Third Millennium Bible contains universally useful study aids. It includes the chapter summaries from the 1611 Authorized Version, updated for quick reference. Also included are the cross references from the original Authorized Version plus many more, but without sectarian emphasis.

    With its striking combination of majestic biblical language, universal biblical truth, state-of-the-art format, and completeness, this is truly a Bible for all, and an appropriate landmark for the new millennium.

    Here is a brief sample of Third Millennium Bible:

    Romans 1:1-7
    1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle and separated unto the Gospel of God, 2 which He had promised before by His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, 3 concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was made of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4 and was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness by the resurrection from the dead, 5 by whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, 6 among whom ye also are the called of Jesus Christ. 7 To all who are in Rome, beloved of God and called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    The following are the specifications for a new
    translation by KJV-onlyists:

    "It is not a new translation, but a careful updating
    to eliminate obsolete words and archaic spelling
    by reference to the most complete and definitive
    modern American dictionary, the Webster's
    New International Dictionary, Second Edition, unabridged."

    So when in 1998 the Third Millennium Bible (TMB) came
    out KJVOs flocked to it. Not. KJVO perfidy revealed
    again.

    NO, the TMB isn't translated by some infant baptizing,
    papish wantabees (CoE) but by mainstream US religionists.
    KJVO perfidy revealed.

    The TMB contains the KJV1611 edition footnotes
    and verse marginal notations. KJVOs can't tolerate
    that - KJVO perfidy revealed.

    The TMB is copyrighted and the copyright is in force
    in the United States. KJVOs can't tolerate that;
    KJVO perfidy revealed.

    I'm "KJVO", by the standard set forth by Father Dr. Bob Griffeth. How is it you already know what I think? You don't.

    You used the word "religionists", strange that we preach against the "religious" crowd and tell them they need salvation, just as Jesus did in His earthly ministry, and you seem to place some sort of trust in these. But mainly how strange and still familiar the label "KJVO" speedily arises to the fore-front of the discussion.

    Also, until I came to BB, I have never even heard of the 3rd Mill Bible. Must not be all that great an edition. Who knows, who cares?

    I've got my KJB, that's all Jesus needs to speak to me! (The example from Romans 1:1-7 read in a somewhat unfamiliar way, I'll abstain. Not waste my time with just another weakened verbose.) [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info Craig!

    Precepts, that is great. If your happy with your kjv, then by no means would I suggest you change.(same advice I give those in my home church). BUT, if your going to call another translation weak,(especially one youve never heard of), please point out where and how it is weak. If you cant, then what you say only amounts to ranting.

    Just went to the website listed by Christforkildare. After looking at the word comparisons, It seems like this bible would be more than acceptable to those of the kjvo opinion. In one sense at least it seems to be even closer to the kjv 1611 than the 1769 revision, in that it contains the Apocrypha.

    Actually, (and I know nothing about the Bible translation that is being referred to) it sounds like it WAS marketing for the KJVO crowd, just like the NKJV was and is, the problem is, the marketing people just don't realize how the KJVO's think (nor do I).

    I still can't get one to tell me how I should translate a Bible into Modern Chinese? Do I use a KJV entirely (because it is inspired) or do I translate from ancient documents and if so, which ones?

    I also can't get an answer to WHO was inspired, the 1611 "translators" or the 1769 "revisionists"?

    If you can get anything resembling an intelligent, straight forward response to that question ,youve achieved something no one on this board has. [​IMG]

    Man, I cannot believe I am about to write this, but it has to be said.

    The ONLY Authorized version can only come from Cambridge Publishers in England who hold THE patent on the KJV. Any translation that says it is the authorized version is in great legal jepordy from Cambridge.

    Having said that, there is not one KJVO that will accept even the authorized 1611 because it does contain the Apocrypha writings. They base what they know of the AV1611 on the last revision of the KJV in 178?. Will they ever admit this, no way, they are to smug in their NEW Theology.

    The University Press at Cambridge does not hold the Patent on the AV. That patent is held by the Crown, I.E., the royal family. A monopoly was issued to the Royal Printer, first granted to Christopher Barker in 1577. The University Press at Cambridge, and the University Press at Oxford, are permitted by royal charter to override the royal monopoly; one other publisher, Scottish, is an accepted printer of these materials (Anfro Hart and his heirs). (By its royal charter of 1534, the University of Cambridge had acquired the perpetual right to appoint three printers who could print "all manner of books." The right preexisted Barker's patent (1577), and was taken to cover Bibles, so Cambridge printed a Geneva Bible in 1591 and its first KJV in 1629. Out of fairness Oxford acquired a similar charter in 1636, and in the 1670s printed Bibles.)

    I stand corrected on that point.

    Since Brother Ricky has at least temporarily distanced himself from the BB, I'll ask other KJVO (or look-a-likes): What about others not so familiar with the KJV? Can He speak to others via the NASB/NIV/NKJV?
