What we call the Old Testament, in its original language, has incredibly few Bible errors. This is mostly because the Levitical priests and Levites faithfully copied the text. Unfortunately, many problems can be found in the King James translation due to translators using Latin readings that do not correspond to the original text used in the manuscripts. Still more errors have crept in because the scholars, picked by King James to produce an English version of scripture, 'read in' to certain texts their own biases, prejudices and long held church doctrines.The bulk of New Testament manuscripts were copied century after century from earlier ones as they wore out. This text, known as the "Received Text," was used in the King James Bible. Nearly 4,000 manuscripts of this official text agree with each other and contain relatively few errors. Located primarily at Mount Athos in Greece, copies of the text give us a very reliable record of the New Testament.
This brief article only lists SOME of the errors and inaccuracies in the King James Bible. Other, more modern translations like the Good News, English Standard Version, NIV, and so on (believe it or not) have far MORE problems and distortions in the text than the venerable KJV!
