"Ancient" Syriac bible found in Cyprus
NICOSIA (Reuters Life!) – Authorities in northern Cyprus believe they have found an ancient version of the Bible written in Syriac, a dialect of the native language of Jesus.

The manuscript was found in a police raid on suspected antiquity smugglers. Turkish Cypriot police testified in a court hearing they believe the manuscript could be about 2,000 years old.

The manuscript carries excerpts of the Bible written in gold lettering on vellum and loosely strung together, photos provided to Reuters showed. One page carries a drawing of a tree, and another eight lines of Syriac script.

Experts were however divided over the provenance of the manuscript, and whether it was an original, which would render it priceless, or a fake. ...

First, none of that is true. I know many, many fine folks who adhere to the KJV who have indeed studied NT Greek and clearly understand the "science" (falsely so-called) of textual criticism. This "science" attempts to place man's flawed logic ahead of the logic of faith. Also, most of the men teaching NT Greek today were taught that the Nestle Aland text is best by whoever taught them so that's what they teach others. This is what James White would call 'circular reasoning'. Tradition, if you will.

Second, believe it or not, there are many of us who do not adhere to the blindness of traditionalism but rather believe that God has preserved His Word for us IN SPITE of the flawed logic of the aforementioned "science" of modern textual critics. After looking at both sides of the matter, many just believe that the traditional text is best.

Third, Frenchie, in spite of your intellectual superiority, you misspelled intellectualism.

Unfortunately, this is a continuation of the blindness of traditionalism and a result of American intillectualism (IMHO).

I also find it interesting that when you hear someone teach from the KJV they will say "in other words...". Why not just get a translation that's in today's english? If Koine Greek was the street language in the first century, then let's make the translations in today's language (w/o the inferior majority text of course)

Jim, Do you really think Mike Vlach and William W.Combs are actually helping people by telling them their Bible has many errors and defects and that it really does not matter because it is good enough?

I'm not buying what they're selling. Their writings sound a lot like the serpent in the garden convincing Eve that she couldn't trust what God had said. These men are deceived on this particular issue. They are attacking the word of God.

I'm thankful I can trust every verse in the KJV, including 1 John 5:7 and Mark 16:9-20.

Ephrem of Syria ALSO Wrote in Syriac (Aramaic) !

His Bible ALSO DID Have 1 John 5:7 (As The King James Bible STILL Has Today):

"FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN; THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE." I JOHN 5:7

THE FALSE "BIBLE" TRANSLATIONS AND PER-VERSIONS OF YESTERDAY & TODAY; THAT IS, THE N.A.S.B., THE N.I.V., AND ALL THE OTHER H.I.V.'s OF THE K.J.B. HAVE CHOPPED-OUT / ERADICATED / DELETED / TAKEN-OUT / ALTERED / REMOVED 1 JOHN 5:7 OUT OF THE ETERNALLY PRESERVED WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD: AND THUS HAVE PRONOUNCED A CURSE UPON THEMSELVES & THEIR FALSE "BIBLE" TRANSLATIONS. . . . . .

"FOR I (ALMIGHTY GOD THROUGH THE APOSTLE ST. JOHN) TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH (OR READETH) THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK (OF REVELATION & ALL THE AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE), IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK (OF REVELATION & AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE):

AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY (IN THE AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE & ESPECIALLY 1 JOHN 5:7), GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK (OF THE AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE)." REVELATION 22:18-19 !

BrotherDon, Mike Vlach, evil? Hmmm, he might be interested in hearing that! He was a former associate or assistant pastor at IHCC, and I took that class he wrote that outline for. He is now a professor at Masters Seminary. God certainly preserved His Word in the original autographs, (and of course, the Darby version of the Bible. ) Dr. Combs gives an excellent explanation on [URL=http://www.dbts.edu/journals/2000/Combs.pdf]]]The Preservation of Scripture[/URL] in his article.

Jim, I enjoy reading your posts, you have good understanding of many spiritual issues. But the article you posted a link to (How We Got Our Bible) is evil doctrine. The author tries to cast doubt upon the preservation of God's exact words. I'm glad I have an infallible Bible in my hand (KJV). Don't be fooled by the textual critics. None of them believe we have a 100% accurate infallible version in English or any other language for that matter. I choose to simply believe what God says about His word.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
