Words that Shaped the World: Celebrating 400 Years of the King James Bible

Over the last three months Ashland Theological Seminary has been celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. As part of that celebration we held three lecture forums featuring eight speakers and/or panelists. Not all of the lectures focus on the KJV. In fact, only one does. We begin with a look at ancient manuscripts, move through church history, explore modern translation, and finish with a panel discussion.

Last night was our final event, but I have decided to make the video recorded lectures available to you below. Each session is approximately 90 minutes long and includes more than one lecture. These are unedited versions and so there is some lag time at the beginning of each one. Once the link loads you can fast forward to the beginning of the program. We had a great series of lectures and I hope you benefit from them as much as we did.
