People believe what they choose to believe. Most have an attitude of "Don't confuse me with the facts; my mind is made up." I am constantly amazed at the folks who quote bible verses as an authoritative factual source.
One web page article that I have read starts out with "The fascinating story of how we got the Bible in its present form actually starts thousands of years ago ..." Read that entire article web page by following the embedded link contained within its title as follows, English Bible History.
Inquiring minds want to learn more. Okay, then, follow the embedded link that will take you on over to the National Geographic web page King James Bible.
For further information regarding the King James Bible, I suggest you read another web page article that also has an embedded link contained within its title: Story Behind King James Bible, Ken Curtis, Ph.D.
Yet some more may be read over at A Brief History of the King James Bible, By Dr. Laurence M. Vance.
In conclusion, I place a link below for you to read a very interesting article from Newsweek:
