SEMINAR ON THE “TRUE TEXT”
THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS AND THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE
By Dr. Michael J. Bisconti
We want it to be clear to everyone that the “Seminar on the ‘True Text’” provides systematic instruction in our groundbreaking work in Biblical Textual Criticism and Biblical Textual Calculus. (Reviewer’s Note: In fact, Dr. Bisconti is the “father of next-generation textual criticism,” the “father of next-generation biblical textual criticism,” the “father of textual calculus” and the “father of biblical textual calculus.” Next-generation textual criticism repudiates (rejects as untrue) much of the work of past textual critics. Next-generation biblical textual criticism repudiates much of the work of past biblical textual critics.) More than forty years ago, we started out from ground zero without any presuppositions or biases as to what the “true text” would be. We did not assume that the “true text” would be the Textus Receptus and the King James Version of the Bible (in their appropriate, linguistic contexts; that is, Greek and English, respectively). However, as we state on our pages on BTCr and BTCa:
…reason dictated and we were trusting God that things would work out the way they did.
In other words, before we began our work, there was already circumstantial certainty that the Textus Receptus and the King James Version of the Bible were the “true text.” As we say on our pages on BTCr and BTCa:
Circumstantial certainty means 99.9999999999% certainty.
Therefore, we were far more than reasonably certain that we would end up confirming the Textus Receptus and the King James Version of the Bible as the “true text.” As we say on our pages on BTCr and BTCa:
We likewise have made the circumstantial case. However, again, that was not enough. Therefore, we have taken the time - 40 years - to do what needed to be done…we have confirmed that there is physical certainty that the Authorized Version is the Word of God. Physical certainty means 100% certainty.
