Affected Teaching
The modern versions omit “the Lord” which is a divine title of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Gnostics did not believe that Christ was God or even divine so they did what they could to lessen the fact that He was the incarnate Son of God. The King James Bible glorifies the Son by preserving all the divine titles which were penned by the holy men of old under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
