King James Version, what does James mean anyway?


The name James as far as I can tell has its origins in Hebrew. The name actually means “Supplanter”. The usual meaning of the name James is “He who supplants”.

I’m not really one that goes into secret meanings and such but its interesting to note that the King James Bible is also referred to as the Authorized Version.  Its also interesting to note that when you say King James Bible you are actually saying the Bible that supplants other bibles.

One dictionary has the meaning in two words:



Interesting information i’d say.

Does the Complete Jewish bible promote evolution?

Lets see.

Here is the Complete Jewish Bible’s version of Genesis 1:1-5

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day.

Now lets look at the King James Bible or Authorized version clearly stating that it was “the first day”:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, andvoid; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said , Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, thatit was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and thedarkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day


See my point? The KJV clearly makes us to know that it was THE first day whereas the Complete Jewish Bible just says “one day” not “the first day”. This clearly promotes evolution.
