King James Bible Errors
Here are a few errors in the King James Bible that everyone should know about.
Having read through the Bible several times, I decided to do a timeline of events in the scripture. I was also interested in how old the earth was. And I wanted to have in my mind an idea of how much time passed between Adam, Noah, Abram, Isaac, Jacob, Judah, Jesus Christ etc since there is much talk about Jesus Christ returning about the year 6000.
When I was doing the timeline, I ran into a difficulty with knowing the exact dates because there is no specific age of Abram's father for when Abram was born.
Also, there appears to be a conflicting age of when Abram went into the land of Canaan. Which isn't that big of deal because many details are left out. So it appears Abram was simply 75 years old when he went into Canaan.
But the most significant problem that drew my attention was with a prophecy of God and the geneology from Levi and Merari until Moses and Aaron left Egypt (Moses was 80 and Aaron was 83).
Since we don't know the age of Levi for when Kohath was born, nor do we know the age of Kohath when Amram was born, nor the age of Amram when Moses was born, I had to guess at it to get some idea. "Knowing" (or so I thought) that the children of Israel were in Egypt for 400 years, I had 400 years to deal with. Guessing, being what it is, I tried different ages of the fathers and double-checked to see if it reached 400 years. I did know the age at which the fathers died. And even if the children were born 9 months after their father's died, I could not "stretch" the time to make 400 years. I even tried adding the amount of time that Joseph was in Egypt before his father and siblings arrived. But to no avail. I figured this: there was something going on that I did not know, or I didn't understand what I had read. So I left off doing the timeline, ending up with some guesses as to the dates for when Joshua had entered the land of Canaan.
Later, on doing some research for the ribbons of blue to be worn on the borders of the garments, I came across a video suggested by youtube regarding how long the children of Israel were in Egypt. The video is done by user NathanH83
Since I don't have a degree in the Bible, and many pastors do, this really causes me to wonder if pastors really care about the Bible, or what else they may know but not tell people. Either way is not good. Many claim KJV Bible is God-justified or whatever. Not so. It has errors.
The Short of It
Long story short, the problem is the the KJV is based on the erroneous Masoretic text and not on the more accurate Greek Septuagint. Evidently the Masoretic text has been systematically altered to support some erroneous doctrine and mess with the timeline of the Bible. Is it possible God would allow a copy to be manipulated? While this warning applies to the book of Revelation, it may also apply to all of scripture:
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
So here is first incorrect verse in KJV in Genesis:
Genesis 11:12 reads And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
And Genesis 11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
Gen 11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
Gen 11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
Gen 11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
Gen 11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
Gen 11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
These make 650 years of error and put KJV 650 years in error with Egyptian pyramids and history of descendents of Heber (Hebrews).
Also, these errors put the text in contradiction to itself. Removing these hundreds of years doesn't give enough time for people to repopulate the earth before the tower of Babel was built as recorded in Genesis 11 (Peleg = division - tower of Babel).
Not correcting these copy-errors gives non-believers an opportunity to point out these errors and try to justify not believing the scripture, claiming scripture is erroneous.
Exodus 1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. Correct this to -
Exodus 12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. - This should be:
According to even the genealogy of the Masoretic text it would be impossible for the children of Israel to have been in Egypt 430 years. You know there is a problem with a text when it contradicts itself.
The sick thing is that "Christian Bible experts" repeat the lies of the Masoretic text even though what they say is mathematically impossible. Are they so ignorant? If not, why do they lie?
