We figure the question is, what is the history of the King James Bible? The full history of the King James Bible can be read online by doing a search engine search as many people have done the research and written on the topic.

However, King James was a king of Britain and Scotland and fully believed the Word of God according to his own memoirs and records. He believed in the Divine Rights of Kings and wholly opposed the Catholic Church.

Hence why he ordered the scholars of his day to translate the Word of God into English and publish the authorized King James Bible. He had 9 children with one wife, unheard of by a king in those times and of all things, he was a Jacobite.

The King James Bible History

In addition, his original Bible contained a harsh admonishment of the Catholic Church of their evil and wickedness, and it also included the Apocrypha. The Apocrypha was/is a selection of books that were published in the original 1611 King James Bible.

These apocryphal books were positioned between the Old and New Testaments (they also contained maps and genealogies). The Apocrypha was a part of the KJV for 274 years until being removed in 1885 A.D. by the Bishop of Rome and the Catholic Church.

A portion of these books was called deuterocanonical books by some entities, such as the Catholic church.
