For Beginner Gospel Study
by Jack Lyon
The Readable Scriptures edition uses the standard King James Version of the New Testament but removes the modern overlay of verse numbers, double columns, chapter summaries, and cross-references; then it formats the text based on the content of the record itself—as headings, poetry, block quotations, or whatever is required, including modern paragraphing to organize verses in context. The result is an edition that shows the underlying structure of the ancient documents and is easy to read and understand.
