Bible Verses Deleted From The NIV

The sole purpose of this blog is to bring about awareness

of differences among translations.

7-16-2015  UPDATE!!! Since I first posted this blog!
What I have recently learned concerning these difference is many modern textual scholars believe these verses were not part of the original text of the New Testament. “These scribal additions are often found in late medieval manuscripts of the New Testament, but not in the manuscripts of the earlier centuries. “And because the King James Bible is based on later manuscripts, such verses became part of the Bible tradition in English-speaking lands.

May the Holy Spirit guide each of us to truth!

2 Tim 4:2-5 Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

This is one of the GREATEST verses testifying of the trinity. Why does the NIV and some other translations leave it out?
