Note that a “nested position” is “a position that is used to build another position.”  In this case, our BIBLE VERSION POSITION is built upon the “KJV Final Authority” position.

 

 

The “KJV Final Authority” position does NOT rule out “subsidiary translations” of the Bible.  Subsidiary translations are like low-level judges while the King James Bible is like a Justice of the Supreme Court.  In other words, any conflict between translations is resolved by the King James Bible.  In addition, the KJV Final Authority position requires that the King James Bible must be understood in the light of the 1611 – 1679 English Dictionary.  For example, the word “hope” in modern English means “the emotion evoked by the possibility of good.”  However, in the 1611 – 1679 English Dictionary, the word “hope” means “confident expectation.”  Finally, the KJV Final Authority position is referred to by the abbreviation “KJVA.”
