King James Bible 2016

New Testament

 

   

11:1Now the apostles and brethren who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.
11:2And when Peter came up to Jerusalem, those who were of the circumcision contended with him,
11:3saying, "You went in to uncircumcised men and ate with them!"
11:4But Peter explained the issue from the beginning, describing it to them in sequence, saying:
11:5"I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a vision, an object descending just like a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came to me.
11:6On which, when I observed it intently and considered, I saw four footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air.
11:7And I heard a voice saying to me, 'Rise, Peter; kill and eat.'"
11:8But I said, 'Not so, Lord! Because nothing common or unclean has at any time entered my mouth.'
11:9But the voice replied to me again from heaven, 'What God has cleansed you must not call that common.'"
11:10Now this was done three times, and all were drawn up again into heaven.
11:11And, behold, immediately there were three men already standing before the house where I was, having been sent to me from Caesarea.
11:12Then the Spirit told me to go with them, doubting nothing. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered the man's house.
11:13And he told us how he had seen an angel standing in his house, who said to him, 'Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon whose surname is Peter,
11:14who will tell you words by which you and all your household will be saved.'
11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning.
11:16Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, 'John indeed baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'"
11:17If therefore God gave them the same gift as He did to us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?"
11:18When they heard these things they held their peace; and they glorified God, saying, "Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life."
11:19Now those who were scattered after the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to no one but the Jews only.
11:20But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, preaching the Lord Jesus.
11:21And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.
11:22Then news of these things came to the ears of the church that was in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.
11:23Who when he came and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.
11:24Because, he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And many people were added to the Lord.
11:25Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to seek for Saul.
11:26And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for an entire year they assembled with the church and taught many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.
11:27And in these days prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch.
11:28Then one of them, named Agabus, stood up and signified by the Spirit that there was going to be a great famine throughout all the world, which occurred in the days of Claudius Caesar.
11:29Then the disciples, each according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren dwelling in Judea.
11:30This they also did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

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.
