The New King James Version (NKJ)

In 1979, Thomas Nelson Publishers issued a new edition of the of the KJV New Testament. The Publisher assembled 119 scholars to work on this new version. By 1982, the entire NKJV was published and immediately widely accepted. The New King James version was based on the 1894 version of the Textus Receptus. It is known for its integrity in preserving the true meaning of the text and also for easy readable style (or at least much easier than the KJV). It preserves some of the old archaic expressions.
