The Modern King James Version of the Bible was first published in 1962 and has had many revisions over the years, with the latest revision occurring in 1999. The MKJV (http://www.prlog.org/11996524-lifelock-promo-code-20-off-coupon.html) is the work of Jay P. Green, SR. who is the author of several versions of the King James Bible. There are many people that support this version of the Bible but there are also plenty of people (http://www.prlog.org/11996509-checks-unlimited-offer-code-50-off-coupon.html) that take serious issues with some of the translations and revisions that have occurred. On this page we are going to take a look at both sides of the argument.
Many people that feel favorably about the MKJV Bible point to a number of things they like about it. Supporters say that it is an updated version that adheres more to modern English while also remaining more true to the original version of the Bible. Supporters say that archaic language has been replaced by language (http://www.prlog.org/11996518-bh-cosmetics-coupon-codes-save-30.html) that we currently use. People say this is good because many of the words used have changed meaning quite a bit since the early 17th century. Supporters also say that some other translations of the King James Bible were inadequate and that in some places the King James version of the Bible has been paraphrased but the MKJV restores the original text.
Detractors of the MKJV say that like other versions, it is yet another distortion of Scripture. Some experts feel that many of the alterations that have been made have no basis. Some experts (http://www.prlog.org/11996370-green-smoke-coupon-code-latest-working-coupons.html) feel that portions of the text found in the MKJV are just ridiculous and in my research I have found several examples where people have compared texts from the MKJV with the original to prove their point. In an article that I found online, one expert said that he did not even know of the existence of the MKJV until someone asked him about it, and he had more respect for Jay Green prior to reading it.
We have found numerous experts on both sides of the argument with some saying that other versions of the King James Bible that have been paraphrased have been restored to the original text (http://www.prlog.org/11996528-sittercity-promo-code-25-off-coupon.html) in the MKJV and that certain things that were just wrong have been corrected in this newer version. Then there are other experts that point out contradictions and several other things that are wrong with the Modern King James Version.
With arguments on both sides, the only solution is to read several versions of the Bible and decide for yourself which one is best for you. In a couple of months I am taking a trip back east to visit with a longtime friend that also happens to be a biblical scholar. I was able to get a good deal on a hotel room with a hotels.com coupon (http://www.prlog.org/11998277-tigerdirect-coupon-code-20-off.html) to help make the trip a little more affordable. I am interested in hearing his take on the validity of this version of the Bible.
