Affected Teaching
In Acts 3, as Peter and John were going to the temple, they had encountered a crippled man who sat by the gate Beautiful which was at the entrance to the Temple. He sat there begging for money from those who were on their way to prayer time which was about 3 PM. Peter and John approached and this beggar had asked for alms. Peter looked at him and told him that silver and gold they did not have, but what they had, they would give him. Peter commanded the crippled man to rise and walk in the name of Jesus of Nazareth. The man had literally leapt up, springing to his feet, and was walking around with a spring in his step. Very soon after this happened, word had spread that a great miracle had taken place. Now all the people who attended the temple knew that it was the crippled man who was now walking because they were all familiar with him, seeing him every day. The King James uses the words “all” and “one to another” to emphasize the fact that this word spread not only to a small portion of the attending crowd but to every single person that was there. As we would say today, the news of that healing went “viral.” The modern versions remove the reality that this word spread like wildfire and that every person was speaking about it. Everyone present was discussing amongst themselves the reality of this notable miracle. The modern versions tend to reduce the excitement of the crowd and thus reduce the scope of the miracle. This the King James Bible does not do!
