Doesn’t the Greek offer more than the English?  Yes.  Then, shouldn’t the ancient Greek New Testament have more authority than the King James Bible New Testament?  No.  Why not?  The “more” that the ancient Greek New Testament has to offer is NOT indispensable to a person’s spiritual and moral health and growth.  However, since the ancient Greek New Testament does have more to offer in terms of grammatical precision, there is no reason that one cannot acquire this knowledge and share it with others when it is of a didactic (entertaining as well as instructional) nature.  In sharing this knowledge, one should always make it clear to their listeners that additional, didactic commentary from the ancient Greek New Testament is NOT indispensable to anyone’s spiritual and moral health and growth.
