For 274 Years The KJV Bible Had Over 45 Books But Now It Only Has 39 Because In 1885 Two Old Men From The University of Cambridge Said Remove Them And Everyone Said OK
Why did this happen?
In 1885 two critics, Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort had 14 books removed from the Bible. The Catholics and Ethiopians ignored Westcott and Hort, but the Protestants and the Anglicans obeyed.
This was not the dark ages, they had electricity, automobiles, engines, etc. This was a modern-day removal of 14 books from God’s Word because they felt those books needed to go.
Your KJV Bible was altered by those two men.
The most popular Bible at the time of Jesus was the Greek Septuagint version – which included the extra books.
2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
The collective name assigned to the books that were removed is, “Apocrypha”, meaning: those that were hidden. Generally, the term is applied to writings that were not part of the canon because they are not considered genuine.
16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 17: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Here is the list of what was removed:
1 Esdras (Vulgate 4 Esdras)
Book of Tobit (the Vulgate, and Luther call it “Tobias”)
Book of Judith (“Judeth” in Geneva)
Book of Wisdom
Ecclesiasticus (also known as Sirach)
Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremy (“Jeremiah” in Geneva) (all part of Vulgate Baruch)
Song of the Three Children (Vulgate Daniel 3:24–90)
Story of Susanna (Vulgate Daniel 13)
The Idol Bel and the Dragon (Vulgate Daniel 14)
Prayer of Manasses (Daniel)
The Ethiopian and Roman Catholic Bibles still currently have these books in the Old Testament. They do not call them Apocrypha.
Where are we today with the Old Testament?
Some additional books not included in the new testament are The Epistle of Barnabas, Shepherd of Hermas, The Didache, the lost epistle, and the third letter to the Corinthians. There are several more.
Without all that is written do you have the full story?
Why do they not want you to read those books?
