• The NKJV is the only modern version to use the Majority or Byzantine text of the New Testament. All the others use an eclectic text from the minority text manuscripts. This is why I prefer it above all others as my base translation when comparing texts. it is an excellent modern English translation, retaining many of the timeless features of the KJV, yet avoiding all the archaisms of the 400 year old original. WONDERFUL STUFF.
