5. A “Codex Moment”

Downloads: HHB_notes_5.pdf | HHB_audio_5.mp3

The fifth message in the series: Why the King James Bible?

1 Corinthians 14:36-38

God's Chain Link from His Revelation to Your Translation:

  • Revelation
  • Inspiration (Prophesying)
  • Inscripturation (Scripture)
  • Transmission (Manuscripts)
  • Preservation
  • Translation

Point 1: Materials of Transmission

Point 2: Process of Inspiration

Point 3: Method of Preservation

Conclusion: No modern language version of the Bible uses the Received Text. Our conclusion is aptly summarized by Dean Burgon:

I  am  utterly  disinclined  to  believe,  so  grossly  improbable  does  it seem—that  at  the  end  of  1800  years  995  copies  out  of  every  thousand, suppose, will prove untrustworthy; and that the one, two, three, four, or five which remain, whose contents were til yesterday as good as unknown, will be  found  to  have  retained  the  secret  of  what  the  Holy Spirit  originally inspired. I am utterly unable to believe, in short, that God's promise has so entirely failed, that at the end of 1800 years, much of the text of the Gospel had  in  point  of  fact  to  be  picked  by  a  German  critic  out  of  a  wastepaper basket  in  the  convent  of  St.  Catherine;  and  that  the  entire  text  had  to  be remodelled after the pattern set by a couple of copies which had remained in neglect during fifteen centuries, and had probably owed their survival to that neglect; whilst hundreds of others had been thumbed to pieces, and had bequeathed their witness to copies made from them. Happily, Western Christendom  has  been  content  to  employ  one  and  the  same  text  for upwards of three hundred years [in 1883].

Quotes about the Bible:

It is shallow enough
so that the most timid swimmer
may enjoy its waters without fear,
and yet deep enough
for the most expert swimmer
to enjoy it without touching the bottom.
~John Watson~

The Empire of Caesar is gone;
the legions of Rome are rotting in the dust;
the avalanches that Napoleon hurled
at Egypt have melted away;
the pride of the Pharaohs is fallen;
Tyre is but a rock bleaching fishermen's nets;
Sidon has scarcely left a wreck behind;
but the Word of God still survives.
~John Cumming~

Have not I written to thee excellent things
in counsels and knowledge, That I might
make thee know the certainty of the words
of truth; that thou mightest answer the
words of truth to them that send unto thee?
~Proverbs 22:20-21~

The words of the LORD are pure words:
as silver tried in a furnace of earth,
purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD,
thou shalt preserve them
from this generation for ever.
~Psalms 12:6-7~

The second message in the series: Why the King James Bible?

2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16

Thesis: The Reformation led to the discovery of biblical preservation so that God's revelation could go through translation and give a new generation God's inspiration.

Definition: Scripture is the written preservation of verbal communication from God by making it visible in writing; Scripture is what was written and then recognized as authoritative.

  • There are two seeds: God's Word & man's word
  • There are two Greek Texts: Received & Eclectic
  • There are two lines of Bibles: Reformed & Revised

IN TIMES like these, you need a Savior
In times like these, you need an anchor
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

In times like these you need the Bible
In times like these O be not idle
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

In times like these, I have a Savior
In times like these, I have an anchor
I'm very sure, I'm very sure
My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

The Rock is Jesus, yes, He's the One
This Rock is Jesus, the only One
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

~ Ruth Caye Jones (Mother Jones), 1944 ~
