That's good! So why do you think many university educated folk who profess to have some working knowledge of Hebrew and Greek have so much trouble with reading the KJV? We can't have it both ways...the KJV is too difficult and archaic to read, BUT UNDERSTANDING GREEK is what really benefits ?
Wouldn't such a knowledge of the KJV improve the standard of English across the whole educational spectrum?
Why do some promote an education in Greek yet fail to see the benefits of educating to a biblical English first?
'Its language never was the language of the day, contrary to popular misapprehension, but was divinely provided (primarily through the word craftsmanship of William Tyndale a century earlier) to reflect the cadences and nuances of the Hebrew and the Greek, resulting in a timeless Biblical English that has indeed stood firm through four hundred years.'
