“The N.T. text is 99.5% authenticated” - So, Are all bible versions 99.5% the same? Hardly!!

The above quote, shown in the previous post What Muslims are saying about our Bible, belongs to Bruce Metzger.

Are all bible versions 99.5% the same?

One of the common and most obvious falsehoods we often hear by those who rail against the idea that the King James Bible is the complete, inspired and 100% true words of God is the claim that all thousands of textual variations out there are very minor and not of any real importance, and that the various bible versions are basically 99.5% the same.

These ridiculous claims by those who do not believe that ANY Bible in ANY language are the complete, preserved and infallible words of God are so easily proven to be absurdly false that one has to assume that such people are either speaking out of complete ignorance of the facts or they are deliberately lying.

Here is one such claim found on a popular anti-King James Bible only site written by a man named Steve Rudd. We will look carefully at what he says and then respond to his statements. He writes:

This outline is designed to refute the view that the King James Version (KJV) is the only modern Bible on earth that is 100% accurate and error free. Foremost, we feel that the KJV is an EXCELLENT translation, but not the ONLY excellent translation. In over 90 percent of the New Testament, readings are identical word-for-word, regardless of the family. Of the remaining ten percent, MOST of the differences between the texts are fairly irrelevant, such as calling the Lord "Christ Jesus" instead of "Jesus Christ," or putting the word "the" before a noun. Less than two percent would significantly alter the meaning of a passage, and NONE of them would contradict or alter any of the basic points of Christian doctrine. What we have, then, is a dispute concerning less than one-half of one percent of the Bible. The other 99.5% we all agree on!

Because there are over 14,000 manuscript copies of the New Testament we can absolutely be confident of its accuracy.” Steve Rudd.

Responding to Mr. Rudd’s Claims.

First of all, Mr. Rudd has a peculiar way of using the words telling us that “we feel that the KJV is AN EXCELLENT TRANSLATION”. If he really thinks it is such an excellent translation, then why do so many of his other articles found on the same site go on and on, example after example, complaining about how the King James Bible is based on the wrong texts and has scores if not hundreds of translational errors?

Either his standard of “excellency” is very low or he is not willing to be honest and come right out and tell us that he thinks the King James Bible is an inferior and error ridden relic of the past that should be left behind and abandoned for something more modern and accurate.

Secondly, Mr. Rudd then tells us: “In over 90 percent of the New Testament, readings are identical word-for-word, regardless of the family. Of the remaining ten percent, MOST of the differences between the texts are fairly irrelevant, such as calling the Lord "Christ Jesus" instead of "Jesus Christ," or putting the word "the" before a noun. Less than two percent would significantly alter the meaning of a passage, and NONE of them would contradict or alter any of the basic points of Christian doctrine. What we have, then, is a dispute concerning less than one-half of one percent of the Bible. The other 99.5% we all agree on! “

Here is where Mr. Rudd goes completely off track and is either speaking out of ignorance or is flat out lying about the facts.

Modern version proponents (also known as Bible Agnostics because they do not know and cannot tell you with absolute certainty which parts of all the various contradictory versions are from God and which are not) often try to tell us that all the bible versions teach the same things doctrinally and so there is not need to get all upset about this King James Bible onlyism stuff.

Well, this simply is not true. There ARE definite doctrinal differences and it is these very real differences that prove the modern versions to be false witnesses. Please see “No Doctrines Are Changed?”

Mr. Rudd is pretty close to the truth when he says there is about a 10% difference regarding the text of the Bible among the various translations out there today, but then he grossly overstates his case when he tries to pass off the majority of these as being nothing more than reversing the name of Jesus Christ or putting “the” before a noun. He is completely in error when he claims that “the other 99.5% we all agree on!”

Then he goes way over the top when he affirms as his conclusion: “Because there are over 14,000 manuscript copies of the New Testament we can absolutely be confident of its accuracy.”

Let’s check out the FACTS, OK?

Actually, what we see from recent polls is the the majority of present day Christians no longer believe that any Bible in any language is the complete and infallible words of God, and they are by no means “absolutely confident of its accuracy”.

See “The Bible is NOT the Inspired and Inerrant Words of God”

Here is just one of the quotes regarding textual criticism you will find in this article.

"As New Testament textual criticism moves into the twenty-first century, it must shed whatever remains of its innocence, for nothing is simple anymore. Modernity may have led many to assume that a straightforward goal of reaching a single original text of the New Testament--or even a text as close as possible to that original--was achievable. Now, however, REALITY AND MATURITY REQUIRE THAT TEXTUAL CRITICISM FACE UNSETTLING FACTS, CHIEF AMONG THEM THAT THE TERM 'ORIGINAL' HAS EXPLODED INTO A COMPLEX AND HIGHLY UNMANAGEABLE MULTIVALENT ENTITY. Whatever tidy boundaries textual criticism may have presumed in the past have now been shattered, and its parameters have moved markedly not only to the rear and toward the front, but also sideways, as fresh dimensions of originality emerge from behind the variant readings and from other manuscript phenomena" (E. Jay Epps, "The Multivalence of the Term 'Original Text' In New Testament Textual Criticism," Harvard Theological Review, 1999, Vol. 92, No. 3, pp. 245-281; this article is based on a paper presented at the New Testament Textual Criticism Section, Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting, Orlando, Florida, November 1998).

And this isn’t even mentioning the Old Testament where versions like the RSV, NASB, NIV, ESV, NET and Holman Standard Versions reject the Hebrew texts hundreds of times and not even in the same places.

Here is just a sample. You can see many more here:

The following short list is just a sampling of the divergent and confusing readings found among the contradictory modern bible versions. There are numerous other examples. Among these “details” are whether Jeremiah 27:1 reads Jehoiakim (Hebrew texts, RV,ASV, NKJV, KJB) or Zedekiah (NIV, NASB); whether 2 Samuel 21:8 reads Michal (Hebrew texts, KJB, NKJV, RV, ASV) or Merab (NIV, NASB), or 70 (NASB, NKJV, RV, ASV, KJB) being sent out by the Lord Jesus in Luke 10:1 or 72 (NIV), or the 7th day in Judges 14:15 (KJB, NKJV, RV, ASV) or the 4th day (NASB, NIV), or God smiting 50,070 men in 1 Samuel 6:19 (KJB, RV, ASV, NASB) or 70 men slain (NIV, RSV), or “70 men- 50 chief men” (Young’s), or there being 30,000 chariots in 1 Samuel 13:5 (KJB, NKJV, RV, ASV, NASB, ESV) or only 3000 (NIV, & Holman), or 1 Samuel 13:1 reading - ONE/TWO years (NKJV, KJB, Geneva,Judaica Press Tanach), or 40/32 (NASB 1972-77) or 30/42 (NASB 1995, NIV), or _____years and.______and two years (RSV, ESV), or even “32 years old...reigned for 22 years” in the 1989 Revised English Bible!; 2 Samuel 15:7 “forty years” (Hebrew, Geneva, NKJV, NASB, RV) OR “four years” (NIV,RSV, ESV,NET), or whether both 2 Samuel 23:18 and 1 Chronicles 11:20 read THREE (Hebrew texts, RV, ASV, NKJV, NIV, NET, Holman or THIRTY from the Syriac NASB, RSV, ESV), or 2 Samuel 24:13 reading SEVEN years (Hebrew, ASV, NASB, NKJV) or THREE years (LXX, NIV, RSV, ESV) or whether 1 Kings 5:11 reads 20 measures of pure oil (Hebrew texts, Geneva, KJB, ASV, RV, NASB, NRSV) or 20,000 (RSV, NIV, ESV, NET, LXX and Syriac) or in 2 Chronicles 31:16 we read THREE years old (Hebrew texts, Geneva Bible, Wycliffe, LXX, Syriac, RV, ASV, RSV, NRSV, ESV, NIV, NKJV, Holman, NET) or THIRTY years old (NASB - ft. Hebrew “three”) or where 2 Chronicles 36:9 reads that Jehoiachin was 8 years old when he began to reign (Hebrew texts, NASB, NKJV, RV,ASV,KJB, ESV) or he was 18 years old (NIV).

Christians do not believe in the Infallibility of Scripture.

Another quote showing the widespread unbelief in the infallibility of Scripture is this: Pastor Michael Youseff's Message on His "Leading The Way" program. The title of todays message was "The Bible, The World's Most Relevant Book - Part 2. In his message he gave statistics of a poll that was conducted. Here is what the poll revealed: “85% of students at America's largest Evangelical Seminary don't believe in the inerrancy of Scripture. 74% of the Clergy in America no longer believe in the inerrancy of Scripture.”

How Different Are the New Testament Texts?

How many textual differences are there between such Bible translations as the King James Bible (and also the NKJV) and the other versions based primarily on the Westcott-Hort/ UBS Greek texts like the NASB, NIV, ESV, RSV?

There are many myths that are perpetuated today by the defenders of the modern versions, and one of those is that there is very little difference between the Received Text underlying the King James Bible and other ancient Protestant versions and the Westcott-Hort Greek text underlying most of the modern versions. Westcott and Hort themselves made this claim in their day, and it is widely repeated today. The fact is that the differences are large and serious and a choice must be made.

The following is from Dr. Donald Waite's book Defending the King James Bible: "The Westcott and Hort Text changes the Textus Receptus in over 5,600 places.”

"Do you know how many changes they made? My own personal count, as of August 2, 1984, using Scrivener's Greek New Testament referred to above, was 5,604 changes that Westcott and Hort made to the Textus Receptus in their own Greek New Testament text. Of these 5,604 alterations, I found 1,952 to be OMISSIONS (35%), 467 to be ADDITIONS (8%), and 3,185 to be CHANGES (57%). In these 5,604 places that were involved in these alterations, there were 4,366 more words included, making a total of 9,970 Greek words that were involved. This means that in a Greek Text of 647 pages (such as Scrivener's text), this would average 15.4 words per page that were CHANGED from the Received Text. Pastor Jack Moorman counted 140,521 words in the Textus Receptus. These changes would amount to 7% of the words; and 45.9 pages of the Greek New Testament if placed together in one place.”

"Rev. Jack A. Moorman, in December 1988, wrote a book entitled: 'Missing in Modern Bibles--Is The Full Story Being Told?' It was published by The Bible For Today in April, 1989. Rev. Moorman counted every word of the Received Greek Text and also every word of the Nestle/Aland Greek Text and, on a chapter by chapter count, came up with the Nestle/Aland text being SHORTER than the Received Text by 2,886 words. This is 934 words more than were omitted from the Westcott and Hort text. (1,952 vs. 2,886). The omitting of 2,886 Greek words is the equivalent, in number of English words involved, of DROPPING OUT THE ENTIRE BOOKS OF 1 PETER AND 2 PETER! Pastor Moorman's book is eighty large pages." [B.F.T. #1726] (Bible for Today, 900 Park Ave., Collingswood, NJ 08108)

Just to prove that these textual changes are far more than just reversing the name of Jesus Christ to Christ Jesus or adding the word “the” before a noun, here is a concrete list showing MANY BUT BY NO MEANS ALL of the textual differences between translations like the King James Bible along with the NKJV and versions like the NIV and NASB. See if you think these textual differences are of no major significance and that they add up to 99.5% the same.

Whole or most of the verse omitted in the NIV as compared to the KJB and NKJV. There are another 28 entire verses in addition to these 17 examples from the NIV omitted from the text of the Revised Standard Version. (That makes for a total of 45 entire verses missing from the N.T. text of the RSV!)

Matthew 12:47 - “Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.” (Omitted by RSV and ESV but found in NIV, NASB, NKJV)

Matthew 17:21- “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

Matthew 18:11 - “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.”

Matthew 23:14- “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.”

Mark 7:16 - “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”

Mark 9:44 - “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Mark 9:46 - “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

Mark 11:26 - “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespases.”

Mark 15:28 - “And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.”

Luke 17:36 - “Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”

Luke 23:17 - “For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.”

John 5:4 - “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.”

Acts 8:37 - “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

Acts 15:34 - “Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.”

Acts 24:6b to 8a - “and would have judged according to our law. But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands, Commanding his accusers to come unto thee”

Acts 28:29 -”And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.”

Romans - 16:24 “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

I John 5:7-8 - omits the words: “in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth”

20:23 Why tempt ye Me?
