  •  Which version of which bible? (1+ / 0-)

    We have only had the printing press for 500 or 600 years. How did they print out bibles before that? They wrote them by hand. It seems that many times, different versions would arise. Some fables disappeared while others showed up brand new. An example:

    How Mark's and John's Stories Changed

    Take the story of Christ's resurrection. As the gospel of Mark tells it, on the third day after the crucifixion, Jesus rose from the tomb and appeared to various people, including his disciples.

    But Bill Warren, the professor leading the project, tells weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz that in the original manuscripts for Mark, the story of Jesus visiting the disciples is nowhere to be found....

      We have a small but influential group here in NH who want to dissolve the United States and reassemble it with the just the original 13 states under the Articles of Confederation.  In their "New Hampshire Declaration of Abjuration and Reformation" and other documents, the Union States People on New Hampshire recognize the 1560 Geneva Bible as "our only source of law, to the exclusion of all other sources from any semblance whatever."  Oddly, "our only language; to the exclusion of all other words and definitions from any source whatever" is Webster's 1828 American Dictionary which is 268 years younger than the Geneva Bible.  Noah Webster which spells and/or defines lots of words differently than did the editors of that bible.

      The Geneva Bible was published 51 years earlier than the King James Bible, and was one of the sources used by the editors and translators of the original King James Bible.
