Sacrifice for the Word: The King James Bible On the 400th Anniversary of The King James Bible this article by Dr Kate Wilson, based on her sermon of 20 February, notes the connection of several Christ’s alumni with the King James Bible Isaiah 55:6-13, Hebrews 14:1-12

“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing where to I sent it.” (Isa 55:10-11).”
