KJV Lecture Published
A slightly revised version of my Ethel Wood Lecture (02 Feb 2011) has now appeared in the latest issue of Expository Times (vol. 122, issue 10, July 2011, pp. 478-89): “The King James Bible and Biblical Scholarship”. I mentioned my main points in an earlier posting (05 Feb) on this site, so I won’t go into detail here. Essentially, I focus on the KJV as itself a product of biblical scholarship of its time, and then propose that it contributed to the further development of biblical scholarship, finally suffering criticism from that scholarship, especially for the pre-critical Greek NT text on which the translators had to rely.
