Bible Versions - Why Change Some Not All?
TUESDAY, JULY 18, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
One theory says that Alexandrian heretics changed the Greek text of the Bible to support gnosticism. I am particularly curious as to why they would make a change in one place, but not in all places. This is true not only of parallel passages like...

Bible Versions - Septuagint Quotations in NT?
MONDAY, JULY 17, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Here's a puzzle I do not know the answer to: If the Textus Receptus is the proper and fixed text of the Bible from which modern translations should not deviate by one jot or tittle, how can that be reconciled with the fact that many (most?)...

Bible Versions - Conclusion
FRIDAY, JULY 14, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
This will be the last of the series on Bible Versions and sort of summarize my conclusions. Unfortunately, time is not on my side, and I can't do any more right now. Even these breezy blog entries which are superficial and skim over all the...

Bible Versions - Is Doctrine Watered Down By Modern Bibles?
FRIDAY, JULY 14, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
People say modern Bible translations are watering down and changing doctrine. Because I was caught up in the Word of Faith beliefs before learning about the historical Calvinist doctrines of the Reformation, I don't know whether this is true or...

Bible Versions - Reasoning Process For The Underlying Text
THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
The central, most important issue in Bible versions is the Greek text of the New Testament (remember, the Hebrew Masoretic Text really isn't under debate). In the King James Bible, the Received Text, which was received from refugees after the fall...

Bible Versions - The Biggest Reason To Use The KJV
THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..

Bible Versions - Reasons To Use The KJV
THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
This list is just a few compelling reasons I've found. By no means is it exhaustive. (1) The KJV is part of the Christian historical heritage, and its language in woven into the writings of the past 400 years. To not know its language means that...

Bible Versions - Is There A Conspiracy?
THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
A set of conspiracy theories surrounds the issue of Bible versions. There are variations, but the general thrust is that new Bible versions are attempting to replace the historical Christian Bible with a new, watered down, New Age version which...

NKJV - Satanic Symbol?
THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Is the design on the NKJV a Satanic symbol? I've heard this silly nonsense so much that I wanted to point something out. If the symbol is Satantic, the exact same symbol is on the cover of Louis Berkhoff's book "Summary Of Christian Doctrine"...
