There are people going around saying we don’t have God’s Word today in our own language and therefore must learn Hebrew and Greek to truly understand it. Is this true? No.
Church history is mostly if not totally a waste and so is attempting to master the original languages the Bible was written in (Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic). There is no divine authority in church history or in learning the original languages. Selah. God preserved His Word to us in our own language as He promised – and this is so we didn’t have to learned another language to understand what He stated (Psalms 12:6-7). What a gracious KING we serve! Personally, I’m usually careful with those who have a pretended higher, superior view of Scripture based on their supposed knowledge of the original (now dead) languages. Such apparent pride alone reveals they haven’t learned much yet from their pretended knowledge of the original languages. Do we know all about the necessity of humility in the English? (Matthew 18:3-4; 20:24-28; 23:8-12, etc.) I usually ask them if they speak or read or write in those original languages and usually the answer is silence. | Church History is a Waste
Make no mistake: It’s none other than the “spirit of antichrist” that is behind this unfounded, heretical notion that “you have to learn the original languages to understand the Bible.” (1 John 4:1-3) Laughable. This is just another attempt of Satan to get people to not seek God, to make things seem difficult. Anyone parroting this lie of the devil is under the influence of Satan himself.
“THE KEY OF KNOWLEDGE”
“Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” Luke 11:52
Here Jesus is addressing evil doers who take away the ability for the average person or even child to understand God’s Word, His will. To take away the “key” is to disallow people from having access to the goods, the knowledge of God, the truth. Think about that. Ponder what our LORD is conveying here, the principle of it – and use this truth to discern the world around you.
God’s Word is easily understood by even children. It’s self-interpretive. He who died for all and loves all of mankind made sure of that. In fact it’s only the humble in heart, the true seekers whom He gives the knowledge of Himself to. Jesus says:
“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” Matthew 11:25
Why would God have made sure that, who went to such great lengths see that we have His Word in our own language, if He knew we weren’t going to be able to understand it? (Psalms 12:6-7)
Do we realize the evil indictment this is against the LORD? Why would God hide His blessings from true seekers? He wouldn’t and the record of His Word itself and all the way through, make this plain, evident.
It is always SATAN himself behind the stumblingblocks, the keeping of God’s truth which reveals the Great Savior from the common people.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4
In order to keep the Savior Christ from the people, His Word must be kept from them. Those without God’s Word are in darkness. They can have no “light”, no “understanding” without it.
“Light” and “understanding” replace darkness and lack of understanding by nothing else but the written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” Psalms 119:130
Jesus informs us that He has come to give mankind “life … more abundantly” and that it’s Satan who has come “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:” (John 10:10) History holds the record that it was none other than Satan’s roman catholic church that murdered millions who were instrumental in bringing the Word of God to the forefront, into manifestation for all people (William Tyndale, the Waldensians, etc.). See Foxe’s Book of Martyrs (the original version).
Anyone teaching the above heresy – that one must understand Greek and Hebrew to undersand God and His Word – is putting a stumbling block in the way of others and is under divine condemnation. It is Satan and those under His control who don’t want you to know God’s Word. This is the same war against God and mankind that Satan has waged from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1, 4).
We often hear compromisers perhaps self-righteously say “But I use several versions.” Is that a good thing? No.
“How can we put an ounce of confidence, credibility, in that which is a corruption of what God stated? Is it not SATAN behind the casting doubt upon God’s Word and changing of it? (Genesis 2:17; 3:1, 4) Is God now ‘the author of confusion’? (1 Corinthians 14:33) Does He need us to read His enemy’s versions of what HE stated to understand His will, etc? Think about this.”
WHO Came to Take Away God’s Words?
Jesus says “Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word.” (Mark 4:15)
Satan wars against the Word – against people, the common people, being able to have the Word of God in their language and understand it. Now that we have it in our languages, Satan attempts to convince people that they can’t understand it unless they 1. go to seminary, 2. learn the original languages, etc. Nonsense.
The beloved William Tyndale was murdered by Satan’s Roman Catholic church for translating the Bible, God’s Word, into the common language of the people – so they could know it and know God for themselves (Hosea 4:6; John 5:39-40; 20:31; Psalms 119:130; 2 Timothy 3:16-17, etc.). When the common people can read God’s Word for themselves in their own language, they are enlightened by the LORD and see His true and also see the false prophets, false religions for what they really are – the enemy’s trap door to send people to eternal hell.
The Catholic Church is Satan’s Monstrosity and has done Nothing Except Attack God’s Word
Leslie R Wilds writes:
“Did you know that when the King James Bible came out besides the Tyndale Bible which was suppressed because they murdered him, that the King James Bible was the only Bible available to the General Public? Because the Catholic Church suppressed it. It came out before German rationalism, English deism, or French atheism, ever raised their ugly head. All of that including Darwinism is a direct assault against the King James Bible because the Word of God became available to everyone through the English king who authorized it. Whether you like the king or not, King James Bible is the Word of God it is not to be altered ever.”
The next time some arrogant deceived person attempts to convince you that you need to know the original languages (Hebrew and Greek) from which we derived our English Bible (KJB), ask them to speak and write just 1 Bible verse to you in Hebrew or Greek. This stops them dead in their tracks. Foolishness. As He promised, and kept His promise, God gave us His Word in our language (Psalms 12:6-7). Oh and Jesus says the written Word and Holy Spirit who gave that Word are your Teachers! (John 14:26; 16:13-14)
Beware of the doubt-casters who are the agents of Satan himself – the original doubt caster. The idea that English speaking people need the Greek and Hebrew, two dead languages, is just another complete deception. God preserved His perfect Word to us in our own language – just as He promised in Psalms 12:6-7.
A group called the “Institute of Biblical Studies” advertises the following:
“Know the Bible as you’ve never known it before! Look through the window of the original Hebrew to gain a deeper understanding of the text. Sign up Now. Uncover hidden meanings in the Scriptures by learning Biblical Hebrew and engaging with the Old Testament as never before!”
Is this true or is it a scam?
Where is the perfect Word of God?
Some would tell you that you have to “go back to the originals.”
FACT: None of the originals exist.
FACT: Originals were never collated together in one book.
FACT: Originals were written in 2 now dead languages.
FACT: It’s Satan influencing some to cast doubt on whether we have God’s Word in our language (Gen 3:1).
FACT: God promised to preserve His Word to us in our own language (Ps 12:6-7). Are you calling Him a liar? Did He keep His promise? Do you understand English? Did He leave you without His Word in your own language? No.
SATAN has control over so many who vainly claim to be saved. He is behind the “Hath God said” doubting, questioning of God’s Word just like their father the devil who did so from the beginning, in the Garden, causing the fall of mankind (Genesis 3:3). So many claim to trust the LORD for salvation and yet don’t even believe God preserved His Word for us in this late hour – as He expressly foretold He would do (Ps 12:6-7). “Few there be which enter therein.” (Matthew 7:13-14)
People who aren’t truly serving the LORD want to believe they are justified in their sin because they erroneously believe that their is no perfect Bible. They foolishly believe this gives them a free pass to live in sin, lukewarm which is hell bound (Revelation 3:15-16).
Here’s why it’s certain that sin and an evil spirit are behind the questioning of God’s Word (Genesis 3:1)….. WHO said: “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1) Satan!
YOU know a person is under the direct control of SATAN when they question God’s Word – by casting doubt on His obvious preserved Word. There’s no other conclusion when you understand that SATAN was the first and perpetually the one behind casting doubt on God’s words – “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1) You MUST grasp this. This doubt-casting questioning led to the fall of mankind in the Garden of creation and is leading to the fall of many today who are wise in their own conceit, blind, and walking in darkness!
So, let’s get some things straight….Do YOU speak and write in Hebrew? No. God promised to give us His Word in our language, to preserve it for us and He did so in the KJB. Psalms 12:6-7 … So you claim to NOT be able to understand the King James Bible in your native language, English, that you’ve learned since you were born, and now you claim that someone needs to study 2 dead languages to understand His Word? God fulfilled His promise to preserve His Word to us in our language. – “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt PRESERVE them from this generation for ever.” (Psalms 12:6-7)
Someone may say “Well, you say that the King James Bible is God’s Word but prove that the King James Bible is God’s Word.”
REPLY: Prove that any of the other English “bibles” are His preserved Word. You can’t. They were taken from corrupted manuscripts. It’s easy to prove that the King James Bible is the fulfillment of the divine promise when you begin with His divine promise to preserve His Word (Psalms 12:6-7) and then out of an honest heart you simply, objectively compare verses side by side, having nothing to hide and no agenda but to know the truth. Those bent on defending obvious corrupt “bibles” have sin and therefore darkness in their hearts (John 3:19-21). See if Colossians 1:14 in your fake “bible” has the BLOOD in it. Then, see if Romans 8:1 is chopped in half. And see if that corruption you call a “bible” has removed Matthew 17:21. Case closed.
“The KJV in comparison to the original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic, as you put it, is a ‘cheap knockoff!’ Not everyone can understand, nor comprehend the KJV, that’s why we have the blessing of the Holy Spirit!”
So did the Holy Spirit of God sanction the butchering of His own words in direct contradiction to His severe warning in Revelation 22:18-19? Also, the divine promise of the preservation of His Word means that His real Word in our language is exactly what He wants us to have and equal to those languages from which it came (Ps 12:6-7). You are what some call a Bible agnostic which is a person who believes God originally gave man His Word and then changed and dropped the ball.
THERE ARE SO MANY clueless novices, arrogantly claiming to be the authority on the Bible. Very few of them care to learn a few things. They insist they know it all when they are completely ignorant of the truth about God’s Word and how He kept His promise to preserve it to us in our language (Psalms 12:6-7). This reveals some serious depth of darkness these people are in. If they are casting doubt on God’s Word, they are under the power of SATAN who’s the first one to cast doubt on God’s Word (Genesis 3:1). And, we “know them by their FRUIT.” (Matthew 7:16, 20) True repentance needed.
WHEN someone casts doubt on God’s Word, in any way, they reveal they are not obeying God’s Word and refuse to. They are unrepentant.
BEWARE: Those who say you have to go back to the originals or original languages are admitting – THAT THEY OPENLY DENY THAT GOD KEPT HIS PROMISE TO PRESERVE HIS WORD TO OUR GENERATION IN OUR LANGUAGE AND THAT WE HAVE NO REAL WORD, INSTRUCTION FROM GOD TODAY (Psalms 12:6-7). This leaves people wide open to be misled by the “many false prophets” Jesus forewarned would come and “deceive many.” (Matthew 24:11) If there is no real Word of God, then we aren’t responsible for knowing and obeying it, right? If there is no real Word of God, then we are relegated to listen to mere men and just do what they say and follow them, right?
These who say either, 1. We have no real Word of God today, OR, 2. That any book that says “Holy Bible” on the cover is God’s Word, are what we call “Bible agnostics.” Beware of these wolves! These are some of the vilest of devils who are casting doubt on the integrity and character of God and casting a stumbling block in the path of younger believers – by denying that God left us His Word as He promised to do.
Discrediting or questioning God’s Word reveals that you are a child of the one who did such in the Garden (Genesis 3).
To even come up with some foolish, detracting, groundless argument against God’s Word clearly reveals that such a person is in darkness – which means they are not right with God but rather in rebellion and therefore turned over to darkness (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12). There they are accusing God of lying to us – blaming Him by foolishly accusing Him, saying we don’t have a perfect Bible. So, from the onset of such a conversation, an attack on the LORD, you know you are dealing with a devil.
No other English Bible was needed after the King James Bible came forth – the 7th in the lineage of English Bibles. Is this not in fulfillment of the prophecy of Psalms 12:6-7? It sure is… check this out …. God’s Word is Inspired and Preserved
Certainly, we don’t believe the Holy Spirit of the living God is behind this attack on His own Word, now do we? -impossible! (2 Peter 1:20-21)
Now, there are certainly those who are unlearned and honestly, earnestly looking for the LORD’s answers. Those are the people we wish to help. You may think I am quick triggered and harsh concerning those who dare attack God’s Word. Keep in mind that the first one to do such is Satan himself and so we know from the onset that anyone questioning or casting doubt on God’s Word is of the devil (Genesis 3:1).
Ever notice how those who make accusations against God’s Word can’t back them up? Because they are groundless and those making these false statements are pawns of the father of all lies, Satan – the first one to question God’s Word (John 8:44; Genesis 2:17; 3:1, 4, etc.).
“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt PRESERVE them from this generation for ever.” Psalms 12:6-7
Did God keep His promise to preserve His Word to us in our language? Yes or no? DARE you claim we don’t really have God’s Word? WHEN someone rejects God’s Word, they are counting themselves unworthy of everlasting life – “Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.” (Acts 13:46)
ANY born again believer who compares versions side-by side knows/discerns which one is from God and therefore knows all the other fairy tale versions are from Satan – the original corrupter of God’s words (Genesis 3). Saying you have to go back to the original languages calls God a liar, openly denying the preservation of Scripture – because He promised to preserve His Word to all generations (Psalms 12:6-7). Also, nearly no one in the Western or English speaking world could read God’s Word if this were the case, right? Do YOU personally read and speak fluent Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek? No! How many people do you know who do? So, they are basically saying that if people don’t speak and read all these languages, they are out of luck and can’t have and know God’s Word. Delusional.
The Bereans “searched the SCRIPTURES” they had in their own language and not the original languages or anything extra-biblical (Acts 17:10-11). Looking into the Hebrews and Greek is fine but saying or hinting that you can’t understand God’s Word if you don’t know those languages is just another deception of the original doubt-casting perverter of God’s words, Satan. Jesus says His Word and the Holy Spirit are our teachers, not the original languages (John 5:39-40; 8:47; 14:26; 16:13-14, 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:15-17, etc.).
Now are we beginning to see just how important the divine promise recorded in Psalms 12:6-7 is?
Recently someone sent me a post that pretended to prove that the King James Bible is not God’s exclusive Word for the English speaking peoples. The first sentence gave away their erroneous position. The writer was saying that only the original manuscripts were inspired which is an unmitigated lie that denies that God kept His Word, His promise to preserve His Word to us – which transcends language (Psalms 12:6-7) This is what we call Bible agnosticism – where some people believe that God exists and yet is not active in the affairs of men, and has basically forsaken His creation. They claim He lied by not preserving His Word to us in our language as He specifically promised to do (Psalms 12:6-7). Ridiculous.
Not only is this ridiculous, it makes a fool of those who say it because they don’t read or speak even one of those three languages!
Sherry Todd writes:
“The King James Bible is the very Word of God. You can reject it if you choose. I’m not going to. Didn’t turn out too well for king Saul did it? Rejecting the Word of the Lord brings dire consequences. No thanks. So you claim that the original text are perfect but not our Bible in English? Do you realize that you are saying that God decided that none of us today should have the incorruptible Word? Instead He gave us partial truths and is hiding His Word from us? Not. And you came to this conclusion how? You had to reject many verses to come to that conclusion including the direct promise of God in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His Word to all generations – that includes us! ‘God is not a man, that he should lie.’ (Numbers 23:19)”
Those who claim they can’t understand the Bible in English and then turn around and say you have to learn 2 other new and dead languages (Hebrew and Greek) to understand God’s Word, are quite confused to say the least…. think about that.
Here is my recent reply to someone who threw out the “original languages” argument:
“Do YOU speak and write Hebrew and Greek? If not then by your own definition your “god” left you without his word.”
To a man who touted that he’s been studying the original languages for years, my response was:
“I have studied Greek and Hebrew for over 3 decades but there’s no need. God gave us His Word in our language just as He promised to do in Psalms 12:6-7. We both know that you do not write and speak Hebrew and Greek. Do you see what you are saying and doing here by misleading people to believe the lie that they have to know the original languages to understand God’s Word? Those are both dead languages by the way…..And you are lying on God. Psalms 12:6-7” God’s Word is Inspired and Preserved
But saying you need to know Hebrew and Greek is laughable and calls God a liar Psalms 12:6-7…. Do we have God’s Word in our language? Yes. People are running around saying you have to go back to the originals (which don’t exist) or learn Hebrew and Greek are great deceivers who destroy the trust God’s wants us to have in His Word-that He preserved for us in our language just like He promised. Those who say you have to know the original languages don’t read or write a lick of Greek or Hebrew themselves.
You see, that’s the underlying truth here, the issue. Satan’s agents corrupted a few manuscripts and those are in the control of the vatican and from which all the new version “bibles” come from… it’s worldwide deception just as Jesus and His apostles warned us.
This lie that you have to know the original languages is many times perpetrated by those who want people to look to them and not God. They are casting doubt on God’s Word and destroying the faith in God’s Word in weak, young believers. It’s very catholic to keep the Word from the people!
The same lying hypocrites who regurgitate the lie that you have to understand the 3 original languages the Bible was originally written in don’t even know those languages themselves. Ask them if they personally speak Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic. The answer is a resounding NO. These are Satan’s agents who get weak people to believe they don’t have God’s Word and so won’t read God’s Word (KJB).
I have no idea how any person could have the slightest respect for Satan’s corruptions of Word of the God they claim to serve. THINK OF THE SPIRITUAL BETRAYAL/ADULTERY! If someone attacked your husband/wife and you STILL endorsed that attacker, HOW WOULD YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE FEEL ABOUT THAT? SMH
MARK THIS: ALL who cast doubt on God’s Word are of Satan – who is undeniably the one who began this doubt-casting when in the Garden he asked the woman “Hath God said”? (Genesis 3:1)
God’s Word records the fact that Satan added the word “not” to what God had said in Genesis 2:17: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (This is the first time “once saved always saved”/”eternal security” was taught-by Satan)
Satan is the original doubt caster to deceive and destroy. In the Garden he cast doubt on what God had said then added 1-3 letter word to God’s Word which led to the fall of mankind into sin (Genesis 3:1, 4). Any person today who is casting doubt on whether we actually have God’s Word preserved to us is doing the work of and is a child of Satan.
Those who lie are the children of the one Jesus says is the father of all lies. No liar shall enter glory but rather shall be cast alive into the lake of fire! (John 8:44; Revelation 21:8)
A worn out lame excuse we hear from some who are deceived is “Well, you have to go back to the original languages to know God’s truth.” In other words they are openly casting doubt upon and denying that we have God’s Word – that the LORD kept His promise to preserve His Word to us in our own language (Psalms 12:6-7). Hmmmmm. Question to such devils: “Do YOU speak and read in Hebrew and Greek? No! So, by your own definition, you can’t know God’s Word. But you are utterly deceived by your own darkened, evil heart. You are calling God a liar – saying He didn’t keep His promise to preserve His Word to all generations. Repent sinner.”
Most modern “preachers” use Satan’s “bibles” instead of the King James Bible and YET WE WONDER why the modern church world is completely apostate?????
The prophesied Great Falling Away has come on the wings of Satan’s false “bibles.”
Did the LORD Drop the Ball?
Those who question that we have God’s Word today IN OUR OWN LANGUAGE by saying that you have to go back to the original languages are full blown agents of the father of lies, the arch-enemy God and all souls.
To say that today’s English speaking Christians have to go back to the original autographs (which do not exist and which we do not need), these evil workers are saying we really don’t have God’s Word. They are saying God blatantly lied to us by promising to preserve His Word and then not doing so!
“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalms 12:6-7
“All Bibles are rewritten!”
That’s the devils’ statement, you know, the one who first changed and questioned God’s Word? (Gen 2:17; 3:1, 4). Explain that if you actually have facts instead of just parroting liars. Discrediting or questioning God’s Word reveals that you are a child of the one who did such in the Garden (Gen 3). What’s behind the “All Bibles are rewritten!!!” statement? Here it is: When you here this claim it’s being made by someone who has no facts, is just regurgitating Satan’s lie, and does not want to be accountable to God and so they deny we have His Word. Pure rebellion.
“No matter what version, King Jesus is the One we are to preach.”
No one is even hinting that anyone other than KING Jesus is the central Theme of all of Scripture and the only One to be preached (1 Corinthians 2:2; Galatians 6:14). Without apology, I bring this important topic to the surface and will continue to do so – because the Word of God is the tangible medium that King Jesus ordained to reveal Himself 😉 Lk 24:44; Jn 5:39, etc. Personally, I will not participate or agree that this is anything but an essential topic with the highest, most severe eternal judgment attached to any man who dare add to or take away from the words of God (Revelation 22:18-19).
Perhaps the most severe warning of Scripture specifically addresses the sinful rebellion of changing God’s Word. Rev 22:17-18. Perhaps you should be crying out to the LORD to instill His holy fear deep in your heart. MESSAGE RECEIVED:
“I agree it is the best English translation; nevertheless the Bible was written in Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. That is God’s Word, everything else is man’s attempt to dictate that Word in their own tongue. To suggest that the Bible was ratified in the English language is a kind of supremacy cult.”
Aren’t you generous to say that the KJB is the best English translation 😉 It’s not only the best it is God’s Bible for the English speaking people. You are misled and perhaps innocently. God promised to preserve His Word and He did into our language (Ps 12:6-7). Saying that God, the Almighty, was not able to fully bring His words into our language is an indictment on the Almighty. You are saying His power is diminished and that He doesn’t care about this generation and are calling God a liar to say that His Word is less in English that it was in the other languages and you have no proof of such – and seem to be acting as if your puny opinion is authoritative. You are a “Bible Agnostic” at this point. Bible Agnostics Exposed
KNOWING Hebrew and Greek is NOT the most reliable way to understand God’s Word. In fact, you don’t even need it. And, those running around saying you have to know Hebrew and Greek to understand the Word, can’t speak or write in Hebrew or Greek. Laughable. The Bible tell us how to under stand the Bible!
Jesus told us that the divine Person of the Holy Spirit is our Teacher – not the Greek or Hebrew (original languages) (John 14:26; 16:13-14; 1 John 2:20, 27, etc.). Yes it’s good to look at the Hebrew and Greek here and there but His Word in our language, which He preserved (Psalms 12:6-7) and Himself are more than able to teach us. In fact, the very best way to learn is actually a system He put in His Word – line upon line learning – stacking Precept upon Precept (Isaiah 28:10, 13; 1 Corinthians 2:13). Thoroughly studying a topic by searching and stacking (collating) Scripture upon Scripture which speaks of that subject you are peering into, is the ultimate method to apprehend the mind of Christ on any topic … Not the original languages.
“What about the Geneva Bible?
I am exposing the new version “bibles” which all came from the corrupted lineage of manuscripts and not the Textus Receptus which the Geneva and KJB come from.
The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James Version by 51 years. It was the …
Complete Bible published: 1560 Religious affiliation: Protestant
NT published: 1557 Textual basis: Textus Receptus
Textus Receptus (Latin: “received text“) is the name retroactively given to the succession of printed Greek language texts of the New Testament which constituted the textual base for the original German Luther Bible, for the translation of the New Testament into English by William Tyndale (1526), Myles Coverdale’s Bible (1535), Matthew’s Bible (1537), The Great Bible (1539), The Geneva Bible (1557 – 60), The Bishops’ Bible (1568), and the King James Version (1611), and for most other Reformation-era New Testament translations throughout Western and Central Europe such as the Spanish Reina-Valera translation and the Czech Bible of Kralice. The Textus Receptus has been translated into hundreds of languages. (See Also The Word of God for All Nations) The origin of the term “Textus Receptus” comes from the publisher’s preface to the 1633 edition produced by Abraham Elzevir and his nephew Bonaventure who were printers at Leiden:
- Textum ergo habes, nunc ab omnibus receptum: in quo nihil immutatum aut corruptum damus. Translated “so you hold the text, now received by all, in which nothing corrupt.”
The two words, “textum” and “receptum“, were modified from the accusative to the nominative case to render textus receptus. Over time, this term has been retroactively applied to Erasmus’ editions, as his work served as the basis of others that followed. Many supporters of the Textus Receptus will name any manuscript which agrees with the Textus Receptus Greek as a “Textus Receptus” type manuscript. This type of association can also apply to early church quotations and language versions.
