On the TV program “Jeopardy” the question was asked: “What is the most accurate translation of the Bible in circulation today?”

No one knew the answer, which is understandable.

The correct answer to the question was: “New World Translation” that Jehovah’s Witnesses use.

10 of the most used Bibles including the King James were put to the test by Bible Scholars, none of these Bible Scholars were Jehovah’s Witnesses. They were Scholars of the World.

Not only is it the most accurate, but it is in “modern language” like you and I speak today, so you will be able to understand the information that you are reading.

The most accurate English Bible is the King James Bible

It was translated directly from the Textus Receptus.

May God bless you as you study His Word

contrary to popular belief, the KJV is actually not very accurate. the NASB is probably the most accurate.

I think the New King James version is good or the Nelson Study Bible.
