A manuscript of a handwritten copy of the Bible has been discovered at Cambridge University. The fascinating document shows the King James Bible in the early editing process of the work and shines a light on just how much of the original text of the Bible has been omitted from the version that Christians read today.
King James Bible heavily edited from the original text
According to academics at the prestigious university, the handwritten manuscript had been mislabelled which meant that it had been left undetected and without investigation for an incredibly long time. However, once the manuscript was discovered it caused something of a flurry of excitement in historical and theological circles as it proves that the King James Bible, which is one of the most widely read editions of the Bible in the modern world, has been heavily edited from the original text. Whole sections of the original text of the Bible are reported to have been cut out from the finished product with notable people and events being completely omitted from the finished product.
