That was merely John's way of speking about himself, I told you he was a humble man.
Jesus can not lie, He is God.
If Jesus gave Peter powers He gave them to him. Period.
But Peter was born a man, was just a man, he lived his entire life as a human being, and died a man. he was just in a state of Grace when he joined His Lord in heaven.
Oh yes, before I forget again ...How I Know The King James Version 1611 Bible is the Word of God, Because
1) God Promised to Preserve His Words
Psalm 12:6-7 "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." Psalm 100:5 that ". . . . his truth endureth to all generations," and Jesus said in John 17:17 that God's WORD is truth.
These words state very clearly that God's preserved word MUST be available to us today, because God PROMISED to preserve it for us. There MUST be an infallible Book somewhere.
2) The Authorized Version Was Translated Under A God-Ordained English King
the other versions have been mostly translated in America, which is not a monarchy. God's form of government is a theocratic monarchy, not a democracy. therefore, it makes perfect sense that His word would be translated for the English speaking people under a monarchy with an English king. I know the King James Bible is the word of God because it was translated under a king.
3) It Has No Copyright
and as such is available to all, anywhere on earth.
4) God Always Translates Perfectly
the words "translate" and "translated" occur three times in the Bible, and GOD is the Translator each time. the scholars insist that the KJV cannot be infallible, because it is "only a translation." do you suppose that such scholars have checked II Samuel 3:10, Colossians 1:13, and Hebrews 11:5 to see what GOD has to say about translating?
5) It Produces Good Fruit
Our Lord Jesus said that every good tree will bring forth good fruit, and we can know them BY their fruits (Mt. 7:17-20).
4) The King James Translators Believed They Were Handling the Very Words of God
5) All (or most of) the New Translations Especially Compare Themselves to the KJV
6) Of the Time in History in Which It Was Translated
this is an extremely important point as the King James Bible was not translated during the apostate and lukewarm Laodicean church period, like the new translations. [The Laodicean period is the last church period before the Second Coming of Christ. It is the last of the seven church periods in Revelation chapters two and three. One can clearly see that we are living in the Laodicean period today by simply comparing modern churches to the church of Revelation 3:14-22.]
this lukewarm period began toward the end of the 1800's and will continue until Christ returns. the new versions fit well into the lukewarm churches, because they are lukewarm "bibles."
the Authorized Version, however, was translated LONG BEFORE the Laodicean churches appeared. It was translated during the Philadelphia church period, which is the best church period of all. it was this church that the Lord Jesus COMMENDED for KEEPING HIS WORD( Rev. 3:8-10)!
7) Of the Manuscript Evidence
there's only one line of manuscripts that we can trust, and this is the line from Antioch, called the "Syrian" or "Byzantine" type text. The word of God speaks POSITIVELY of Antioch, and NEGATIVELY of Rome and Egypt.
8) No One Has Ever Proven That the KJV is Not God's Word
though they certainly have tried.
9) IT Exalts the Lord Jesus Christ
a REAL Bible will testify of the Lord Jesus Christ. the true word of God will always EXALT Jesus Christ, and it will NEVER attack His Deity, His Virgin Birth, His Blood Atonement, His Bodily Resurrection, His Glorious Second Coming, or any other doctrines concerning His Person. however, the new versions especially attack ALL of the fundamental doctrines concerning the Lord Jesus Christ at one time or another.
and shuckie durn, you would think i could come up with a 10th point.
still i can send you a complete dissertation, which is quite lengthy, mostly when it speaks about other translations (manuscripts) but my point here is to explain to you (and to others) WHY i believe as i do. you can say you don't agree, you can argue with me about this point or that point. but the point here is, that these are my reasons for believing as i do in the KJV and i see each and every one of them as being valid and true.
Now about Joses (or Joseph)
he is the second of the brothers of Jesus appearing in the New Testament. Joses is first mentioned in Mark 6:3, which related people talking about Jesus:
"Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us? And they took offense at him."
Joses also appears in Mark 15:40, which mentions among the women present at Jesus' crucifixion "Mary, the mother of James the Less and Joses".
James and Jude wrote the bible books that bear their names.
James the Less only appeared on one list? i've only found one verse in the entire Bible that says there were female angels, but that's enough for me to believe in them. and i can use a jewish scholar RE my Pi argument as half my Bible is jewish. as is my Saviour. and the OT accuracy is equal to the NT one.
but as you don't believe in either one, why should it matter to you?
what your perfectly logical philosophy of reason (VS one of FAITH) offers is NO HOPE. so how it that superior to my JOY my PEACE and my lack of FEAR in the here and now, and my HOPE in an eternity with my Lord and Savior in the hereafter?
