Mark Ward’s KJV and KJVO model

Mark Ward’s KJV and KJVO model (see below).

On this blog I have mentioned models of Bible Version views – that is, ways of categorizing how people think and what they believe about various versions of the Bible. About a week ago, I shared some ideas that might (with work) lead us toward more clarity and less confusion – HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Other posts include:
Recently Mark Ward, author of Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible, in personal correspondence shared with me his model or way of thinking about different approaches to the King James Version.
  • 1. People who prefer the King James Version but are not really invested in the debate over the King James Version.
  • 2. People who prefer the King James Version but who are also aware in some measure that the Textus Receptus is the locus of debate and the place where the New Testament is preserved.
  • 3. People who believe that the King James Version is perfect.
He further explained that statements that people make about the King James Bible often travel among all three views, with overlap especially in the latter two.

I thought this might be interesting and helpful. Used by Permission of Mark L. Ward, Jr., 11 May 2021.
