New Testament

 

   

8:1Now Saul was consenting to his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
8:2And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
8:3As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering into every house, and dragging men and women away, committing them to prison.
8:4Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
8:5Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.
8:6And the people with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
8:7Because, unclean spirits, shouting with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed with them; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.
8:8And there was great joy in that city.
8:9But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the same city and seduced the people of Samaria, claiming that he was some great one,
8:10to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, "This man is the great power of God."
8:11And they heeded him because he had seduced them with his sorceries for a long time.
8:12But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.
8:13Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.
8:14Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them,
8:15who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.
8:16Because as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
8:17Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
8:18And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
8:19saying, "Give me this authority also, that whoever I lay hands upon, they may receive the Holy Spirit."
8:20But Peter said to him, "Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!
8:21You have neither part nor portion in this matter, because your heart is not right in the sight of God.
8:22Therefore repent of this your wickedness, and ask God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.
8:23Because I perceive that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity."
8:24Then Simon replied and said, "Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken should come upon me."
8:25So when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
8:26Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, which is desert."
8:27So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship,
8:28was returning, and sitting in his chariot, was reading Isaiah the prophet.
8:29Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go near and join yourself to this chariot."
8:30So Philip ran over to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
8:31And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he wanted Philip to come up and sit with him.
8:32The place in the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so He did not open His mouth.
8:33In His humiliation His justice was taken away, and who shall declare His generation? Because His life is taken from the earth."
8:34So the eunuch replied to Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?"
8:35Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.
8:36Now as they went on their way, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "Look, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?"
8:37Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he replied and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
8:38So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And they went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him.
8:39Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch did not see him any longer; and he went on his way rejoicing.
8:40But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities until he came to Caesarea.

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.
