Outstanding Accuracy of the Greek Received Text
by Dr. L. Bednar
Authenticity proves Received-Text accuracy, especially at passages resolutely criticized by scholars
Modern scholars think that the KJV and its textual basis are faulty, but we resolutely challenge that notion, presenting an extensive analysis of the Greek and the KJV in the topics of Essay 4. Evidence of original inspiration is seen, along with consistent accuracy indicative of inerrancy preservation. We find modern-science truth in the ancient books of our texts, and detailed fulfillment of prophecy after many centuries. What is most interesting and convincing is the proof we find of authenticity and accuracy of passages contested by scholars above all others in the textual basis of the KJV. Likely, the most criticized of all are the part of 1 John 5:7,8 referred to as the Johannine Comma, the account of the woman taken in adultery in John 8 and the blood of Jesus Christ as essential for redemption in Colossians 1:14. These passages & others, plus other aspects of outstanding Received-Text accuracy are discussed in items a - n of essay 4. The account of the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8, also much criticized by scholars, is discussed separately in essay 3.
