Affected Teaching
The word “twelve” tells us that all the Apostles were present at the beginning of the Last Supper. The hour had come for the last Passover which would be followed immediately by the Bread and the Juice symbolizing the Lord’s blood and body which was broken for us. At the end of the Last Supper, there were only eleven disciples because Judas had already left to betray the Lord. The modern versions omit the number “twelve” and just use a generic saying “the apostles” not giving any specifics, especially since Judas betrayed the Lord at the Last Supper. The manuscript evidence is overwhelming 12 to 3 for the inclusion of the number “twelve” and yet the modern version editors go with the witness of the least amount which is the very thing they accuse the King James Bible of, that there were not a sufficient amount of manuscripts in 1604 and now that there are many more, they go with the least amount. Smells a little like hypocrisy to me.
