Authority Of The King James Bible

The Christian Bible consists of sixty-six separate books, of which thirty-nine are in the Old Testament and twenty-seven are in the New Testament.

The Old Testament books were originally written in Hebrew, and the books we consider authoritative today are the same books that were accepted by Jesus as "scripture" in His time, when He said that scripture cannot be broken (John 10:35). The Old Testament text has been carefully preserved by Jewish scholars over the years, and it is available to us today as the "Masoretic Text," whose authenticity is unchallenged.

The New Testament was written in Greek, which was the major language for international communication at the time, just as English is today. The books included in the New Testament consist of all the known writings of Jesus' original twelve apostles, plus all the known writings of the apostle Paul, who was selected by the Lord to be apostle to the Gentiles. Jesus, Himself, never wrote a book.

New Testament books were not as tightly controlled as the Old Testament books were, and there are slight differences among the various Greek texts. The Greek text that has been best accepted by most Christians over the years is known as the "Textus Receptus," or "Received Text."

All of the Bible translations of the Protestant Reformation are based on the Masoretic Text and the Textus Receptus, including the King James Bible (KJV), which is the recognized standard Bible in English since the year 1611.

So we can be assured that the King James Bible, as we have it today, is a true and accurate record of the Word of God, as He has given it to us through His chosen writers, copyists, and translators.

May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.
