Finally, the Holy Bible in its Original Order!
With all due respect to the translation itself, the books of the KJV are quite out of order! The fact is, King James and his team of 54 translators missed a golden opportunity to produce a complete Bible in which the books follow the original canonical order. And it’s not like they didn’t know; the inspired manuscript order was widely know among scholars. Why was the order ignored? Political expediency? A fear of offending the “doctrinal sensitivities” of the Church of England?
We can only speculate. But now, 400 years later, a new Bible is making headlines—The Holy Bible In Its Original Order. This extraordinary Bible is unique in two ways.
First, it is the only complete Bible ever published—with Old and New Testaments—that follows the original, canonical manuscript order as recognized by scholars. It is a little known fact that the original order was altered by early church fathers. The Holy Bible In Its Original Order includes commentaries that trace precisely how the Bible erroneously came to be in its present 66-book format, revealing how and why its books were mysteriously repositioned from their original order by fourth-century orthodox “editors.”
Once the original order of the 49 biblical books has been restored, God’s purposeful design of the Scriptures begins to unfold, revealing its divine inspiration. Significant portions of Scripture become “unscrambled,” unlocking vital keys to understanding. From an arrangement of neglect and disorder, the Bible suddenly takes on a new sense of balance, symmetry and unity.
Secondly, this version is a new easy-to-read translation, one that reflects the meaning of the original Hebrew and Greek with fidelity and accuracy. Combining current scholarship with the latest in archeological findings—yet, free from the influence of religious tradition and presupposition—The Holy Bible In Its Original Order presents the timeless message of the Holy Scriptures with unparalleled clarity.
Indeed, those who read and study the English Bible deserve a translation that can be trusted. Reviewer Dan Decker of Bible Editions and Versions (Jan. 2009) writes of this new Bible: “It is an excellent translation for those desiring a literal one.... We heartily recommend this fine translation.”
Included are Commentaries providing accurate accounts of the writing, canonization and preservation of the Bible. Various Appendices answer questions such as: When was Jesus born? How did Christ fulfill the Law and the Prophets? When was Jesus crucified? When was He resurrected? What does it mean to be “born again”? What are “works of law”? What are the true teachings of the New Testament Church Jesus founded? Also, biblical and historical Chronologies show an accurate timeline from creation to the present; detailed Footnotes explain hard-to-understand Scriptures. Includes center column references; word definitions and alternate renderings for key words; beautiful original artwork of the Temple in Jesus’ time; 282 pages of commentary; and various maps.
