Lineage of the King James Bible


Compiled by Dr. Ken Matto The King James Bible has a very Godly lineage dating back to the original autographs and has been transmitted to us through the ages without corruption because God promised that His Word would be preserved by Himself so subsequent generations of Christians would have the same authoritative words as the Early Church. Below are the names of the earlier versions of which the King James Bible drew its incorruption from. If you have a pastor in your church that discards the King James Bible as inferior to other Bible Translations, then he has been seriously deceived. If the KJB was inferior would God have used it to literally evangelize the world?
