I don’t use it as much as I do my other Bibles, but the King James Version brought the written word of God to countless men, women, and children over the last 400 years.
That’s right, the KJV turned 400 this year.
Many groups are celebrating this event. One unique group is putting all of the KJV on You Tube via multiple contributors.
The Memphis Theological Seminary (the seminary of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church) will hold a special service on October 5th to celebrate these 400 years.
In today’s world when just about anyone and everyone has access to at least a dozen versions of the Holy Bible via some online tool, it is worthy to contemplate the magnitude of the task completed 400 years ago.
Some passages in the Bible seem to have been written for the KJV, namely Psalm 23. I could not imagine that David’s poetry could have sounded any better in its original Hebrew reading.
Happy Birthday KJV!
