King James Bible 2016
|28:1||Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.|
|28:2||And behold, there was a large earthquake; because, the angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.|
|28:3||His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.|
|28:4||And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.|
|28:5||But the angel responded and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, because I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.|
|28:6||He is not here; because He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.|
|28:7||And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and behold, He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you."|
|28:8||So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell His disciples.|
|28:9||And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Greetings." And they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.|
|28:10||Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me."|
|28:11||Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city, and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.|
|28:12||When they had assembled with the elders and took counsel, they gave a large amount of money to the soldiers,|
|28:13||saying, "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'|
|28:14||And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will persuade him and protect you."|
|28:15||So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.|
|28:16||Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to a mountain where Jesus had appointed for them.|
|28:17||And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.|
|28:18||And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."|
|28:19||"Go therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,"|
|28:20||teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.|
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.
