I am sure the answer is in various threads, but one more thread specifically answering this question will not hurt. What exactly was the basis for the translation of the King James Version? I have been reading a little in Herring and Stagg's book "How to Understand the Bible" and it mentions that the Bishop's Bible was one of the primary sources for translation, as well as relatively late Greek texts, some Latin texts, and other translations from the "Tyndale tradition." Could someone help me out... am I way off? God bless!
