Thread: overview of pure Bible verses that Granville Sharp sought to "correct"

  1. Default overview of pure Bible verses that Granville Sharp sought to "correct"


    2 Peter 1:1 (AV)
    Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,
    to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
    through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

    Titus 2:13
    Looking for that blessed hope,
    and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

    Ephesians 5:5
    For this ye know, that no whoremonger,
    nor unclean person, nor covetous man,
    who is an idolater,
    hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

    2 Thessalonians 1:12
    That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you,
    and ye in him,
    according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    1 Timothy 5:21
    I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ,
    and the elect angels,
    that thou observe these things without preferring one before another,
    doing nothing by partiality.

    2 Timothy 4:1
    I charge thee therefore before God,
    and the Lord Jesus Christ,
    who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

    On this one, Sharp went to the Byzantine Majority conflation corruption, moving away from the AV because he always put doctrine over consistency. I doubt if any Byzantine editions use his translation mangling.

    Acts 20:28
    Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock,
    over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
    to feed the church of God,
    which he hath purchased with his own blood.


    This next one was abandoned in hortian modern version confusion circles because the Critical Text is different. This was clearly a mistranslation from the Received Text when offered by Granville Sharp in his mangle attempt and his retranslation attempt is in the dustbin of translational history.

    Jude 1:4
    For there are certain men crept in unawares,
    who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
    ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
    and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The next was just an oddball mistranslation attempt of Sharp, distant from his rule.

    Philippians 3:3
    For we are the circumcision,
    which worship God in the spirit,
    and rejoice in Christ Jesus,
    and have no confidence in the flesh.

    This next one is another oddball, Christopher Wordsworth, a major supporter of Granville Sharp, attempted his own retranslation.


    James 1:1
    James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
    to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

  2. Default textual elements

    This will go down his verses, looking at the textual elements in a bit more depth.

    Acts 20:28
    Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock,
    over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
    to feed the church of God,
    which he hath purchased with his own blood.

    This is irrelevant to the pure AV text and requires a Byzantine "Majority" text corruption (Lord and God). It was simply a conflation of the two readings.

    The two main variants .. God, and Lord, God, the pure Bible text, being stronger in the Latin and Syriac and ECW.The limited and minor Alexandrian evidence is itself split, but actually agrees mostly with the pure Bible.

    It should be noted that here you have a real rarity, an actual and clear Byzantine conflation, "Lord and God". And thus a major error in the "Majority" text.
