What Bible does The Way International use? Are multiple versions used?
The Way International uses many different versions of the Bible in its research and teaching. However, the primary version used in our research and by those who attend our meetings is the King James Version. The King James Version is preferred because words added by translators are in italics, and it is the version that most Biblical reference materials are keyed to, such as concordances and interlinears.
