The New King James Version Exposed

Another Surreptitious Invader

By Dr. Ken Matto

The New King James Version (NKJV) is another version which attempts to equate itself with the King James Bible.  Now the NKJV does contain many more verses than the other modern versions. However, there is an evil subtilty to this version. They will print the verse and then in a footnote cast doubts upon the authenticity and veracity of it.  It is a back door attack on the Scriptures.  The NKJV is just as corrupt as the other modern versions, no matter what method they use to cast doubt upon the Word of God. To print a verse and then compare it to the corrupt manuscripts of Hort and Westcott is as evil as if they just omitted or truncated the verse in view.

In the margins of the NKJV, they reference the following texts:

NU - This is an abbreviation for the following texts:

(N) Nestle-Aland Text - Twenty-sixth edition
(U) United Bible Societies Text - Third Edition

These two are the Hort and Westcott Texts!

M - Majority Text - It is taken from the published Greek by Zane Hodges and Arthur Farstad entitled “Greek New Testament according to the Majority Text.” Now the serious deception here is that this Majority Text is based upon 414 manuscripts. There are 5,209 extant manuscripts. This means that this Majority Text is based upon only 8% of the manuscripts. 8% is hardly a majority which means that this deception must be rejected.

The New King James Version casts doubt on the authenticity of 873 verses in the New Testament. If the Publisher claims that the New King James is just an update of the King James Bible, then why do they do comparisons to the corrupted manuscripts of Hort and Westcott? In this monograph I will be listing the verse and then next to that verse I will be placing the corresponding letter(s)  (NU or/and M) which are used to cast doubt upon the very Word of God.  As we will see the New King James Version is just another counterfeit of the word of God.
