The Majority Text: Divine Preservation and Christian Reason

Many believers have been deceived; they have been made to question if Christ’s words are accurate:

“For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. (Matt. 5:18 NKJ)

Literal Jots and titles have no meaning to fulfill.

“Jot” and “tittle” symbolize “the smallest meaning”: “Not the smallest meaning in scripture will pass until its fulfilled.”

Christ never promised copyists wouldn’t make errors in copying, that diacritical marks would never change. Or that synonyms wouldn’t be used, or some words misspelled, left our or added, or other minor changes in word order.

He promised none of these “errors of transmission” would change even the smallest meaning and prevent its fulfillment.

AND beyond any reasonable doubt, that is precisely what the Majority Text proves happened. Nothing has changed, we have the same bible of the apostles, its in the Majority Text.


None of this implies there is no value to newer translations. I like the NIV and sometimes its use of “dynamic equivalence” explains obscure idiom.

One NIV translation I really like is Isaiah 56:3-7.

Its like a prophetic “word of the LORD” to all born again believers, who love the LORD and carry His cross daily, but made to feel like a foreigner in God’s House—“a dry tree” because they manifest only the miracle of a changed heart and spirit 100% given to Jesus, and not tongues signs or wonders.

3 Let no foreigner who is bound to the LORD say, “The LORD will surely exclude me from his people.” And let no eunuch complain, “I am only a dry tree.”

4 For this is what the LORD says: “To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, who choose what pleases me and hold fast to my covenant–
5 to them I will give within my temple and its walls a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that will endure forever.

6 And foreigners who bind themselves to the LORD to minister to him, to love the name of the LORD, and to be his servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant–
7 these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
(Isa. 56:3-7 NIV)

Revelation 13:1 “I stood” versus “He stood”
