Some Bible scholars like westcott and hort doubt the authenticity of 16:9-20, insisting that Mark did not write this portion. These verses are not found in two early manuscripts, but are found in the overwhelming majority of early manuscripts. The following chart depicts 64 pieces of evidence, all of which are texts as old or older than Codex Ephraemi (C), the fifth-oldest Greek manuscript of the Gospel of Mark. The more a witness supports Mark 16:9-20, the higher it is placed on the chart. by Jim Snapp

The two most famous attempts at restoring the original text of the New Testament are the Textus Receptus, dating from the Reformation era, and the Greek text of B. F. westcott and F. J. A. hort, first published in 1881. These texts were based on differing collections of manuscripts... There is much dispute today about which of these texts is a more faithful representation of the original form of the Greek New Testament... by Doug Kutilek

It is of the utmost importance to understand that the leaders in the Textual revolution which unseated the traditional received text from its place of undisputed prominence for over 15 Centuries, were not, as most of the evangelical and fundamentalist world today believes, fundamentalists, or even othodox.

There is, at the present time, a proliferation of new translations, revisions, and paraphrases of the Bible. One after another, new versions of the Bible pour off the presses, so that it becomes difficult to keep up with them. Is this a help, or a Plague to the Church? In the last few years, many English versions have come on the market: The Jerusalem Bible (1966), The New English Bible (1970), The Living Bible (1971), and, very recently, The New International Version - to name only a few. The justification for all these new versions is the alleged weaknesses of the King James Bible. -by Rev. David Engelsma.

In order for the new Bible versions to gain acceptance in the eyes of professing believers, it is essential that there be first of all, a subtle downgrading of the one they hope to replace in the affections of the Congregation. Be aware of the real truth.

This is the comprehensive work of Edward F. Hills (1912-1981). This is not just another book on New Testament Textual Criticism. On the contrary, its approach to that theme is decidedly unique. Dr. Hills founds his criticism of the New Testament text squarely and solidly on the historic doctrines of the divine inspiration and providential preservation of Holy Scripture, and it is his firm conviction that this is the only proper approach. -by Edward F. Hills

What kind of a question is that? Of course my translation is the most accurate and up to date. It is also recommended by scholars and my pastor uses it. It is translated from the oldest and best Greek manuscripts and although the Hebrew contains variant readings, I am assured that my translation is of the highest quality. by Dr. Ken Matto

We will let you, reader, be the judge as you compare the KJV and TLB. We make this comparison because we have the strongest kind of proof to show clearly that the King James Version is nearest to the original manuscripts. Again we would gladly challenge anyone to produce better or more proof that there is another version that is nearer to the original autographs than the KJV.-By David Otis Fuller, D.D.

Let's consider some important doctrinal truths that are attacked by the NIV. You should note that most of these omissions are found in the other new versions also, if you want to compare. The NIV even refutes the idea that the Bible is the preserved, inspired, Word of God. -by Pastor Dewey W. Williams

The KJV and the NIV are substantially different and do not agree. If two bibles disagree, which one is wrong? Both claim that you cannot add to or take from the word of the Lord, yet they differ. Why? Which one is right? How much do they differ? Does it affect doctrine? Who changed it?

In this day of rapid change, when many have started using modern translations of the Bible (NASB, NIV, NEB, NRSV, NKJV, etc.), abandoning the long-used faithful King James Version, it is appropriate to review a few of the reasons why many creationists (including this writer), still prefer to use the KJV. -by Henry M. Morris

The History of the Bible Versions Controversy - James White reviewing the Textus Receptus in 'The King James Only Controversy' says, 'No grand conspiracies have been uncovered, no attempts to hide doctrines or beliefs by mistranslating the text have been found.' But early Church Fathers declare that the text was tampered with. History disagrees with Mr. White. -by Dr. Clinton Branine

The subject of Text Criticism raises a number of sometimes painful problems for the thoughtful Christian. It is a highly technical discipline; requires superior knowledge of and skill in a number of languages; demands an almost encyclopaedic grasp of history, theology, philosophy and philology. -by Colin Wright

As a pastor, I write this for the people in our church. On occasion, I have been asked why we, in our church, use the outdated King James Version. To answer that, we must touch on some complex and technical subjects. I, accordingly, have attempted to simplify the matter to a degree that most can understand. -by David Sorenson

The Living Bible of Kenneth Taylor has become a popular, widely used version of the Bible. It appears in many forms: Reach Out; The Greatest is Love; The Way; Living Letters; the Highest Flight; etc. Its appeal is its claim that it presents the Word of God in clear, current understandable language, especially for the young. In fact, however, The Living Bible is an attack on the Word of God, Holy Scripture. -by Prof. David Engelsma
