John 16: 31-33 – Doe Yee Now Believe “Jesus answered them, Doe yee now believe? Behold, the hour commeth, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his owne, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheere; I have overcome the world.”
In the middle ages it became known to those that would become referred to as “the Reformers” that there was something wrong with the scriptures, 60 million people lost their lives leading up to the 1611 King James Version of the Bible being printed. The reformation period of the church was fought hard and long to be sure that Christians would have the Word of God passed on to them intact. The truth had been lost and the scriptures of the Western church were plagued with numerous errors and wrong interpretation. In 1611 King James set into motion the translation process like no other had been done before with scholars from Oxford and Cambridge Universities including 3 mathematicians who set out to translate word for word from the original texts from the Textus Recptus. In 1833 there was a new crisis in credibility of the Word of God because of so many translations and changes that had occurred since 1611 that the Oxford and Cambridge Scholars in that day dismissed all translations in the public arena and reprinted the 1611 exactly as it had first been printed only this time it was in Roman Type. They were convinced then that the 1611 translators had gotten it right the first time.
Today we are back to the days of 1833 where the Word of God is again in a crisis of credibility with the translations that are now circulating starting with the Revised Version of 1881 forward to today and it’s many, many versions that satisfy church doctrine rather than representing the historical Word of God that has been passed down through the ages from the beginning of time. Hear Jesus speak, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you…” John 14:27
