Section #12: Textus Receptus, Alexandrian-Nestle and King James Version Comparison for Hades
Hell Stats Page

The Textus Receptus was supposedly compiled in 1516 by Erasmus from a few manuscripts. They were accepted at the time by some to be the only trustworthy and reliable manuscripts. Later manuscript discoveries, the Majority Text, was believed to confirm the reliability of the Textus Receptus. The King James Version was translated from the Textus Receptus.

The Alexandrian text is supposedly based mainly on two manuscripts called Vaticanus and Sinaitcus. The Alexandrian text used for this study follows the Nestle Greek textual tradition. This is the same tradition that most modern English bible translations follow today,  such as the NIV, NASB and NRSV. This tradition is also followed by the United Bible Societiesí (UBS) Greek Text. Supposedly, most scholars consider this tradition to represent the oldest and most accurate Greek text available today.

The two families of Greek manuscripts defined above are behind the King James Only controversy. I am currently neutral as to which one I think best represents the original manuscripts. Because I am lacking knowledge in this area, I've decided to show the differences between both sets of manuscripts. The first table below shows the differences between the Textus receptus and the Alexandian texts. The second table shows the different spellings of the Greek words used for HADES. I used The Interlinear Bible for the Textus Receptus text and The New Greek-English Interlinear New Testament for the Alexandrian text.
