KJV Festival at Union University

Union University recently hosted the “KJV400 Festival,” a conference celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Version of the Bible. All reports are that the conference was a great success. The audio from the conference is now available for free download from the Union University website. I have already begun listening to the plenary sessions, and they are fantastic. I have linked them below so that you can hear them too. There are many more presentations from the breakout sessions that are available at Union’s website.

    I sometimes use the KJV in my teachings for 2 reasons:

    1. Sometime the wording is very memorable and so is the way many remember the verse.

    2. Sometimes the translation is better than recent ones, as what was PC back then is different than what is PC today.
