Revisions in the 2013 LDS Edition of the King James Bible
Religious Studies Center, BYU
On Friday, March 1, 2013, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced a new English edition of the scriptures with updated study helps and stylistic improvements. It had been thirty-four years since the Church produced an improved version of the English Scriptures. Thou such scriptural updates have occurred in the past, it is important to understand what kinds of changes were included in the recently released 2013 LDS English edition of the Bible. The purpose of this article is to describe, in general, these recent changes, and briefly list them. Since the JST changes are of greater doctrinal significance, greater focus will be given to the JST changes made in the new edition.
