Regarding the King James Bible, a conference was held on January 14-16, 1604. The king decided to have the Bible translated into English. Fifty-four of the greatest bible scholars were involved. They were divided into 6 groups—3 for the Old Testament and 3 for the New Testament. One group for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament met at Oxford, two others at Cambridge, and two again at Westminster. The work began in 1607 and was completed in 1610. The first King James Bible appeared in 1611. Now, in this Biblically lukewarm church age (or social Christianity), some Bible critics and accusers say parts of it should have been translated differently. Beware of such as these.
