Manuscript evidence. James White corrects the Hebrew/Greek with the English!

James R. White does not include the books Maccabees, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Judith, Tobit, Baruch, the epistle of Barnabas, the shepherd of Hermes, and Clement (1 and 2) in the Bible even though the "oldest and best manuscripts" have them! He is correcting the Hebrew and the Greek and just going with what his English Bible includes!

James R. White's Bible includes 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews 9:15-13:25, and Revelation even though one of the most "authoritative" manuscripts omit them! He has corrected the original Greek with his English text!

Vaticanus (considered one of the most "authoritative" of the "oldest and best manuscripts") omits the books: 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews 9:15-13:25, and Revelation.

Vaticanus lacks these verses: Matthew 12:47; 16:2b-3; Matthew 17:21; 18:11; Matthew 23:14; 7:16; 9:44.46; 11:26; 15:28; Mark 16:9-20; 17:36, 22:43-22:44|44; 5:4, John 7:53-8:11; Acts 8:37; 15:34, 24:7; 28:29; Romans 16:24.

Vaticanus lacks major phrases from these verses: Matthew 5:44, Matthew 10:37, Matthew 15:6, Matthew 20:23, Mark 10:7, Mark 10:19, Luke 9:55-56, Luke 11:4, Luke 23:34, Acts 27:16.

Vaticanus adds these books: Maccabees, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Judith, Tobit, Baruch.

Another favorite "oldest and best manuscript" is Siniaticus. Siniaticus adds the epistle of Barnabas and the shepherd of Hermes to the New Testament and it adds Maccabees, Judith, Tobit, Sirach, and Wisdom to the Old Testament. It omits Genesis 23:19-24:46, Numbers 5:26-7:20, 1 Chronicles 9:27-19:17 from the Old Testament. It also omits the following verses from the New Testament: Matthew 12:47, 16:2b-3, 17:21, 18:11, Mark 7:16, 9:44, 9:46, 15:28, 16:9-20, Luke 17:36, 22:43-44, John 5:4, John 16:15, 20:5b-6, John 21:25, Romans 16:24.

Siniaticus also omits major phrases from these verses: Matthew 6:13, Matthew 13:35, Mark 1:1, Luke 23:34.

But Mr. James R. White has not made all of these changes to his Bible....he believes his English text corrects the "oldest and best manuscripts" because he doesn't include all of these changes. He doesn't even use ALL of the text of Siniaticus and Vaticanus.

James R. White is a Ruckmanite! Ruckmanism, Ruckmanism! He believes the English is superior to the Greek! Heresy! It's a cult!
