The purpose of the New King James Version is to preserve the authority and accuracy, as well as the rhythm and beauty, of the original King James Version while making it understandable to current readers. The result is a Bible translation, scrupulously faithful to the original, yet truly updated to enhance its clarity and readability.
In 1975, a team of 130 Greek, Hebrew, and English scholars, editors, church leaders, and Christian laity was put together by Thomas Nelson Publishers to produce a modern update to the King James Version. In 1982, the New King James Version was released in its entirety, seven years after its commission.
