Captain America verses the Bible
Captain America was outnumbered 10,000 to 1. Picking up his red, white and blue shield, he stared resolutely at the hordes closing in on him and his fellow fighters for justice. His jaw stiffened and fire was in his eyes as he said, "We often suffer, but we are never crushed. Even when we don't know what to do, we never give up."

Sounds like something Cap might say, right? But he didn't.

Of course, if the survey had used the King James Version of the quote ("We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair") instead of the Contemporary English Version, people may have recognized it better as a Bible verse.

But, the press release was trying to promote a new edition of the Bible called the "The Freedom Bible," which uses the contemporary translation. ...

Methinks! Mayhap ye are both correct.

"Robert Stephanus (also known as Robert Estienne), a Protestant book printer living in France, printed Greek and Latin Bibles that French ecclesiastical authorities considered heretical. As he fled with his family to Geneva on horseback, he arbitrarily made verse divisions of the New Testament within Langton’s chapter divisions. In 1555, Stephanus printed his first Latin Bible with his New Testament verse system.

However, Stephanus’ work was not the first Bible printed with New Testament verse divisions. In 1538, seventeen years earlier, a Latin Bible was printed with different verse divisions, but it was Stephanus’ version that was used for the first English Bible - The Geneva New Testament of 1557, which became the verse system used today" Chapters and Verses

Thanks for the helpful link.

You are correct as well.

I'll have to check into that, Neil. Perhaps the Geneva just was the first English bible to designate verse numbers. Thanks for the heads up.

Neil, nothing to disagree with, as is most often the case. One has to remember what Mormons say, though, We're Christians just like you!

FYI, Deseret News is owned by the LDS. This might explain why the writer mentions the KJV; that is their official translation, in addition to their imaginative writings which are in the KJV style.

The article's ungrammatical title seems to use the propaganda trick of an unstated premise: not quoting the KJV is not quoting the Bible, apparently.

BTW, I understand that verse numbers were added long before the Geneva edition, supposedly by Cardinal Stephen Langton in the 13th C.

"Captain America verses the Bible"

And here I thought the Geneva Bible was the first to put "verses" in the bible.
