THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS: The Greek Text Behind the King James Version
Are you a member of the King James Version Onlyist (KJVO) Cult or affiliated with it? What are the signs that the KJVOists are a cult? What is the true transmission of the Greek New Testament and the Textus Receptus? Let’s begin by saying the King James Version Onlyist (KJVO) is no different from the Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Mormons. They blindly accept information that is blatantly wrong that it leaves the rational mind bewildered. Some warning signs that the KJVO is a cult-minded group. If you are not willing to objectively read a book or article that counters your narrative, not even able to acknowledge basic truths, then you are in the KJVOist Cult.
Byzantine Text-Type of Greek New Testament Manuscripts
The Majority Text is nearly synonymous with the Byzantine Text because it was in Byzantium (and surrounds) that the Lucian text was copied again and again until it was standardized in thousands of manuscripts. (Phillip Comfort)
Bible and Textual Scholar Desiderius Erasmus Who Gave Us the King James Version New Testament
It is challenging to enter this next era of the English Bibles without talking about Desiderius Erasmus and the Textus Receptus (Received Text) that would impact English Translations for centuries to come. Erasmus is credited with saying, “When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.”
Dutch Philosopher and NT Textual Scholar Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam
Erasmus said of God's Word, "I WOULD have these words translated into all languages, so that not only Scots and Irish, but Turks and Saracens too might read them . . . I long for the ploughboy to sing them to himself as he follows his plough, the weaver to hum them to the tune of his shuttle, the traveler to beguile with them the dullness of his journey." (Clayton 2006, 230)
