King James Bible 2016
|16:1||Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Him.|
|16:2||And very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb at the rising of the sun.|
|16:3||And they said among themselves, "Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?"|
|16:4||But when they looked, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, because, it was very large.|
|16:5||And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were afraid.|
|16:6||But he said to them, "Do not be afraid. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him.|
|16:7||But go your way, tell His disciples, and Peter, that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you."|
|16:8||So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, because they trembled and were astonished. And they said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.|
|16:9||Now when Jesus was risen early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.|
|16:10||And she went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.|
|16:11||And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.|
|16:12||After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country.|
|16:13||And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.|
|16:14||Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.|
|16:15||And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."|
|16:16||He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be damned."|
|16:17||And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;"|
|16:18||they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."|
|16:19||So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.|
|16:20||And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the signs following them. Amen.|
King James Bible 2016
Unlike most other modern versions, this Bible's text is based upon the same Hebrew Masoretic Text, and Greek Textus Receptus, of the King James Version of 1611.
In non Textus Receptus versions, the issue of having the best underlying manuscripts, is often overshadowed by the massive amount of omissions in the text. Because the KJV 2016 is not dealing with issues of omission and addition, the focus has been upon definition, and the KJV translators choices have been used as the benchmark.
One issue not often majored upon in the bible version debate is simply the way Greek words are defined. Many times, the NKJV leans upon the definition choices of modern versions as well as defaulting to Vines and Strong's definitions, which are almost always favorable to the Revised Version. In other words, one may have a correct text to translate from, but use erroneous modern version/modern dictionary definitions which change or distort the meaning of the words. Jay Green was accused of having a good TR bible but with "Alexandrian readings".
The KJV 2016 Edition rejects such erroneous modern definitions and restores the distinctness of historical KJV readings. The NKJV also tended to gravitate toward KJV marginal notes, which are in truth, rejected readings, and also toward Geneva Bible definitions, which the KJV had already cleared up.
