Recently, some controversy has arisen over the issue of Bible versions. While some recommend modern language translations as a way for today’s Bible reader to obtain greater understanding of God’s Word, others assert that such modern versions are vastly inferior to the King James Version and should not be used. I am one who believes in the validity and helpfulness of some modern translations, and I would like to explain why in this booklet. Let me begin, however, by stating very clearly that I have a great admiration for the King James Version of the Bible. In over 20 years of pastoral ministry, I have used this venerable version almost exclusively from the pulpit. It has been a tremendously popular Bible and has displayed a staying power for nearly four centuries that gives evidence of the blessing of God. Having said that, however, I must take issue with some brethren who insist that, of all the English language Bible versions available today, the King James Version alone should be used by English speaking people, to the exclusion of all other English language Bible versions.
This booklet is not intended to be a full scholarly treatment of the subject. Such a task would require a full length book with some rather technical discussions. Instead, It is my hope to present this material in a more popular, easily understood format. For those who desire more in-depth reading, I have included a bibliography of material I have found helpful.
In the debate over which version(s) God’s people should use, there are two somewhat related, but nevertheless separate, issues:
1. The issue of the King James Version vs. other English Bible translations.
2. The issue of the ancient Greek manuscripts used as a basis for various translations.
Unfortunately, some have confused these two issues. They are really not the same issue. Each must stand or fall on its own merits.
