How We Got the Bible
This is a class I taught at my church on how we got the Bible. It serves to demonstrate what it means that we have Bible translations today that we can trust in many languages. I intentionally use the KJV as a starting point for the discussion, which serves as an open and honest format to teach on what has been a needlessly divisive topic.
