I, myself, prefer the King James version of the Bible although I do like the Amplified one as well from time to time. I know there are errors in all translations, but I still believe the KJV has the least and is the most reliable, for one reason, the translators were under penalty of death to translate it correctly. I know there are a lot of debates among Christians in this area. That brings me to the question at hand: How did we get our Bible, anyway? I went to my favorite Bible teacher for the answer, Chuck Missler.
I heard this teaching on the radio the first time and was glad to see it on youtube so I could get a refresher course. Chuck goes so in depth into this and most every subject he teaches on. He looks at the subject from all sides and takes you around the mountain a few times and then ties it all together in a way that makes sence. I hope you will take the time to listen to all he has to say.
In this segment Chuck goes into the New Testament and some on the controversy in the versions.
I hope this provided some understanding for you as it did for me. It was a good day for a Bible study.
