At some point Christians got it in their head that the King James Bible is too difficult for adults to understand let alone children. But is it really?
I began reading and memorizing the King James Bible from a very young age, and I understood it. I understood it because it was explained to me. Any scripture needs explaining to small children, you might as well use the most accurate English translation while your at it.
In high school I devoured Shakespeare while my friends were struggling with it, because I was familiar with the Elizabethan English. In college terms like justification, propitiation, and sanctification never threw me for a loop because I'd grown up reading and memorizing them.
At 6 I wasn't afraid of King James English and I didn't think it was difficult to understand. It wasn't until I was an adult that I even began to hear complaints about how challenging the Bible was to comprehend.
What do you think, when were you first introduced to the KJV? Was it ever difficult for you to understand?
