Holy Bible Pictures (KJV)
Photographs of actual Title pages from five authentic Authorized Version (KJV) Bibles showing that the "KJV" was in fact called "The Holy Bible" for more than three centuries. The term "King James Version" is a relatively new phenomena, propagated by critics and new bible version editors in their attempts to discredit the purity of its text.

Can you identify the book and chapter in the Gothic text above? It is really quite simple. Rules of spelling were almost non-existent in early English. Sounding out the word will usually help. Here are a few rules of Gothic printing style: Sometimes the word "the" was printed in this mannerto save space.
The word "and" was sometimes printed as a small double crossed double line to save space.
The letters "m" and "n" were sometimes omitted from the end of words, and indicated by a mark over the preceding vowel.
Two styles of the letter "s" were used; this is why a lower case "s" sometimes resembled a lower case "f".
Two styles of the letter "r" were used; notice the "r" in the words "for", "whosoever" & "record" (Exodus 12:15; 20:24, John 3:16, etc.).
The letters "j" and "i" were printed the same in both lower and upper cases.
When a lower-case "u" or "v" was at the beginning of a word it resembled a lower-case "b".
The letters "u" and "v" were often interchangeable; this is why we call a "w" a "double-u" and not a "double-v".
Myth: Due to the Gothic print and early forms of spelling the 1611 KJV cannot be read nor understood.
Fact: Any twelve year old with Middle School (4th to 5th grade) reading skills should have no trouble reading it!
Myth: The King James Bible has been revised four or five times since 1611, the latest revision occurring in 1769.
Fact: A careful comparison of a 1611 edition with any (un-corrupted) KJV today will readily put to rest this fallacy!
For 400 years the KJV's text remains unchanged and uncorrupted. Click on any of the small photos below to view text from five KJV Bibles dating from 1611 to 2004 (this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, unto the end of the world Matt. 24:14; 28:20).
AUTHENTIC KING JAMES VERSION HOLY BIBLES PRINTED BETWEEN 1611 and 2004 Comparing the Texts of these early KJV Bibles with a modern un-corrupt KJV shows that the Authorized Version of 1611 has never gone through a single Textual Revision and proves that God has indeed kept his promise to preserve his pure word.
THE HOLY BIBLE, Printed in 1611 Seeing its readings proves to cynics that the KJV's text has never been "revised" and is identical to that used today (except for the rare 1611 typographical slips which were shortly thereafter fixed by King James translators themselves).

Compare these scripture verses, John 14:16, John 16:7, I Corinthians 1:18, II Corinthians 2:15, Revelation 1:18 and Revelation 20:13,14, in modern bible versions such as the NIV and the NKJV and you will see that the KJV's superior "Comforter" has been replaced by a subordinate "helper"; and the assurance of our present salvation here and now where we "are saved" by grace through faith has been replaced by a works-based salvation where we are in the process of "being saved" by our own good works; and the word "hell" has been omitted thereby obscuring its philological meaning.
It is no coincident that new bible versions often agree with the Jehovah Witnesses New World Translation and the Roman Catholic New American Bible. For those who take the time to [search] the scriptures daily to [p]rove all things, and search out a matter to try the spirits and do their own research (Acts 17:11; I Thess. 5:21; Prov. 25:2; I John 4:1), the serpent's signature can be seen subtly weaved into the pages of new bible versions. There is overwhelming evidence exposing the nature of the unholy omissions, additions and substitutions and the spiritual forces responsible for the changes (Isa. 14:14; II Cor. 2:17; 11:14,15; Eph. 6:12; II Thess. 2:3,11; I Tim. 4:1; Rev. 13:8).
In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. (Matt. 18:16; II Cor. 13:1)Recommended Reading
