New Testament

 

   

17:1Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves;
17:2and He was transfigured before them, so His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.
17:3And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them there, talking with Him.
17:4Then Peter responded and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you want to, let us make three tabernacles here; one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
17:5While he still spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!"
17:6And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid.
17:7But Jesus came and touched them and said, "Arise, and do not be afraid."
17:8And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus only.
17:9Now as they came down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen again from the dead."
17:10Then His disciples asked Him, saying, "Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
17:11So Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly Elijah is coming first, and will restore all things."
17:12But I say to you, that Elijah has come already and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they desired. Likewise the Son of Man will suffer by them also."
17:13Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them about John the Baptist.
17:14And when they came to the crowd, a certain man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying,
17:15"Lord, have mercy on my son, because, he is crazy, and suffers greatly; because he often falls into the fire and often into the water.
17:16And I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him."
17:17Then Jesus responded and said, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me."
17:18And Jesus rebuked the demon, and he came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
17:19Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast him out?"
17:20And Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; because, truly, I say to you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."
17:21However this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."
17:22Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of men,"
17:23and they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised again." And they were exceedingly sorrowful.
17:24And when they had come to Capernaum, those who received tax money came to Peter, and said, "Does your Teacher not pay tax?"
17:25He said, "Yes." And when he had come into the house, Jesus came before him, saying, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their own children, or from strangers?"
17:26Peter said to Him, "From strangers." Jesus said to him, "Then the children are free.
17:27Nevertheless, lest we should offend them, go to the sea, and cast in a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that, and give it to them for Me and you."

King James Bible 2016

Unlike most other modern versions, this Bible's text is based upon the same Hebrew Masoretic Text, and Greek Textus Receptus, of the King James Version of 1611.

In non Textus Receptus versions, the issue of having the best underlying manuscripts, is often overshadowed by the massive amount of omissions in the text. Because the KJV 2016 is not dealing with issues of omission and addition, the focus has been upon definition, and the KJV translators choices have been used as the benchmark.

One issue not often majored upon in the bible version debate is simply the way Greek words are defined. Many times, the NKJV leans upon the definition choices of modern versions as well as defaulting to Vines and Strong's definitions, which are almost always favorable to the Revised Version. In other words, one may have a correct text to translate from, but use erroneous modern version/modern dictionary definitions which change or distort the meaning of the words. Jay Green was accused of having a good TR bible but with "Alexandrian readings".

The KJV 2016 Edition rejects such erroneous modern definitions and restores the distinctness of historical KJV readings. The NKJV also tended to gravitate toward KJV marginal notes, which are in truth, rejected readings, and also toward Geneva Bible definitions, which the KJV had already cleared up.
