The KJV Bible translation has been given great publicity over the last few years, thanks to its aggressive campaign against New World Translation (NWT) Biblical translations. The KJV has also helped to make its rival, the American Standard Version (ASV), a household name, as a standard Bible translation. All these have made the KJV a valuable resource for anyone wishing to learn about the Old Testament.
But what is it that makes the KJV such a useful guide for those studying the Bible? What makes the KJV a preferable choice when considering the various translations of the Bible?
One of the main benefits of using the KJV is that it is generally understood by Christians. Anyone from any background can understand the Bible, from any walk of life. There are no confusing points that make some readings incomprehensible. Because the KJV has this in common with other English versions, it is better able to reach a wider audience than the NWT, or any other Bible translation.
There are also other features that make the KJV a very good choice for people who wish to study the Bible. For example, the KJV is easy to read at any reading speed, making it very easy to read the Bible in short bits, which can then be put together into longer sections. It is also easy to memorize Biblical verses, thanks to the use of the tetragrammaton.
This is an abbreviation that can be used when it comes to numbers, which helps to recall specific biblical passages. An additional advantage of using the KJV is that is doesn’t make any grammatical mistakes, as some other English versions do.
There are also many benefits to using the KJV when a student wants to supplement their studies with supplemental reading material. It is popularly known as the Bible in another language and has been used by Christians for many centuries.
It is also worthwhile to consider how useful the KJV would be if you wanted to try and learn to read the Bible. Those who want to teach the Bible to children will find that using the KJV is ideal. There are also benefits for those who want to study the Bible and want to give the Bible as a course instead of a book.
Finally, the KJV is one of the most economical Bible translations available today. There are cheaper translations available, but there is no doubt that the KJV is the best choice.
