Dr. Sam Gipp explains KJVO

Dr. Sam Gipp explains KJVO

8/4/2015 UPDATE: Dr. Gipp got his own YouTube channel and the original vimeo account put a password on all the old videos, so I’m embedding the YouTube clips below including the two newer ones (Episode 6 and Episode 7).

One of these days, I’m going to engage in a more thorough rebuttal of the King James Only position (I think it’s not just wrong; it’s indefensible and spiritually dangerous), but in the meantime, you can see the classic confrontation on the issue here.


We haven’t looked at much King James Onlyism (KJVO) in quite some time, but a Biblical tools course brought it back to me this past week and I found some interesting things.

Unusually, I’m going to turn this humble corner of the internet into a vblog. The reason for this it that we have access to what the strongest proponents and opponents of KJVO have to offer in their own words and on camera.

To kick things off, I’d like to introduce you all to Dr. Sam Gipp. He has been a strong and outspoken KJVO advocate for 40+ years and he has put together a series of videos explaining the KJVO arguments and counter-arguments.

I’ve imbeded them below, but for those of you seeing this in e-mail, you can view them here (updated 12/16): Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5. (updated 8/11/2015): Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 6, Episode 7.

Let me know what you think!
