                                                                      And Other Ancient Languages?
     The issue remains the same even when you debate it
     in the Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, or other languages.
     This is not just an English issue.                        Not necessary, but can be helpful if you:

     fifteen different languages tells you the AV Bible
     contains errors, they are telling you the same lie that   tongue, you should translate from the Authorized
     Satan started when he questioned God’s word in            (King James) Version. Most people who know differ-
     Genesis chapter three. That is exactly what they are      ent languages are usually more fluent in their native
     doing. We have God’s word.                                tongue and if they would perfect their skills in their
                                                               native tongue, they would make a better translation
                                                               from their native tongue than if they translated from
                                                               these ancient languages.
                      Hath God said?

                                                                       While knowing the ancient languages can be
                                                               very helpful in translating the Bible from one

                                                               all you need.

                                                                2. Intend to have a ministry that focuses on
                                                               teaching that the Received Text (KJV) is the
                                                               word of God. The preparation of this ministry may

                                                               ancient materials including reading them all,
