Ya it is not exactly the same and there has been changes, it may be closer to the King James bible, than most, or many others, but nevertheless it is not quite the same, and some things have been changed.
It is not as bad as most modern translations because they used the same Textus Receptus the Authorized KJV used, but there seems to be enough subtle changes where I choose to stay with the original version.
I have a beautiful NKJV Bible designed for taking notes.
But I get a weird feeling about this translation.
It's almost as if the meaning has been tampered with in some of the word choices.
Can anyone speak to this?
I have seen minor changes from what is in my Authorized King James Bible. I never recommend any modern English translation, but if someone is going to use one anyway, the New King James is better than the rest. If you are able to understand the Authorized King James Version, it is best to use it.
Chick publications puts out a lot of good material. That change from Son of God to servant of God is a huge change! I have full confidence in my Authorized King James Bible, and really don't think it is difficult to read.
John 3 New King James Version (NKJV) The New Birth 3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
I have tried reading some out of the KJV and it's just not easy.. I need something easier for me to grasp. So much to understand anyway but trying to read in a different language is too much I feel.
If you must use a modern translation, the New King James Version is the best. It is not perfect, but it is far better than the other new translations because it seems to include the entire text, that many leave out. I know you have been having a difficult time with focus, so in your case, that may be your best option for now.
