The King James Bible is 400 years old in 2011

In 1611, the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible was first published.

Affectionately known as the KJV and also often called the Authorized Version and The Holy Bible, this is the very same Bible that many still read today!

Now, 400 years later,
 “it is estimated that 1 billion copies have been printed since the first volume rolled off the press in 1611”

To read more about this version and how and why it ‘came to be’, HERE’S A LINK.

And for even more information, Wikipedia, as usual, has a lot to say. HERE’S THE WIKIPEDIA LINK
