    Hi Jim,

    We do have a 6-part study on the KJV called “The Bible.”
    It can be ordered by calling MBI at 888-605-3202.
    It is part of the school of theology curriculum – http://mbistudies.com/coursework/school-of-theology/ – but can be purchased and studied separately.
    Thank you for your interest.

    I don’t understand the part about the NIV and 1 Corinthians 13. When I looked, I saw that the NIV is not missing the text that this video claims. Please help me understand what that segment of the video was about. I am having a hard time following that portion of the presentation.
    Thanks

    Jon,
    I will say that the context of chapter 13 in the KJV is “charity” and not “love” as it is translated in the NIV. In every instance in that chapter when the KJV uses “charity” the NIV has substituted the word “love”. The two words are not interchangeable and do not mean the same thing. One is an emotional state of mind and the other is an act of compassion. They both cannot be correct.

    Zondervon has published several versions of the NIV. If the video you are referring to tells you that a passage is omitted it could be that the NIV you have is more recent and it has been added back in. This is not an uncommon occurrence as there are many verses in the NIV that are skipped but the following verses remain in numerical order. For example: verses within a chapter will be numbered “21, 22, 23, 25, 26 etc”. When Zondervon receives complaints the verses are added back in. Half of Mark 16 was omitted in the original editions of the NIV but complaints from the public forced the publisher to add it back in to later editions.

    On the other hand the KJV Bible has never been contextually changed. There have been four editions but they are all corrections to type set errors, changing from Gothic print to Roman, and standardization of the spelling of words.

    If you have further questions just drop me a note. I hope this helps.
