Why the ‘original order’ of the Bible matters

With all due respect to the King James Version of the Bible, its books are quite out of order! The fact is, King James and his team of 54 translators missed a golden opportunity to produce a complete Bible in which the books follow the original manuscript order—which, ironically, was well known among those scholars. Why was the inspired canonical order intentionally ignored? Was it political/religious expediency? Was there a real fear of offending the “doctrinal sensitivities” of the Church of England?

Now, 400 years later, a new Bible is making headlines— The Holy Bible In Its Original Order.
This extraordinary Bible is unique in three ways. First, it is the only complete Bible ever published in one volume that accurately follows the original God-inspired manuscript order. Second, this version is a new easy-to-understand translation, one that reflects the meaning of the original Hebrew and Greek with fidelity and accuracy. Third, it includes both the Old and New Testaments in their entirety, as well as extensive commentaries.

This blog will explain why the original order matters and how you can get your hands on a copy of this groundbreaking new translation.

The Case for Original Order
There are several reasons why returning to the original order is important. First and foremost, it provides context for understanding each book. In our present day Bibles, for example, the Book of Esther is sandwiched between Psalms and Job— three very different types of literature. But in its original order—before Chronicles and Ezra—the Book of Esther makes much more sense.

The second reason original order is important has to do with canonicity. When King James created his version of the Bible, he included several books that were not part of the original canon (e.g., Judith, Tobit, Sirach, Baruch, etc.), while excluding others that were (e.g., 3rd & 4th Esdras, parts of Daniel and Esther). This created confusion then and still does today. By returning to the original manuscripts, we can be sure that we are reading only those books that were intended to be part of Scripture.

Finally, restoring the Bible to its original order allows us to see it as one continuous story—from Genesis to Revelation—the way God intended it to be read. When we understand each book in its proper context, we can more fully appreciate God’s grand plan of redemption for mankind.
