I don't deny they knew ancient Greek well, but still they were all members

Response to Re: The KJV translators were all members of the Church of England, so no wonder

 

of the Church of England, there were no Unitarians among the translators, they were all Trinitarians. No modalists either. None of them believed in the chance of salvation after death. Not even any Catholics among them. No Lutherans, Calvinists, Mennonites, Baptists, nobody from any minority church, after all the only legal church in England at that time was the Church of England. So no wonder they approved for example the verse about 3 that bear record in heaven, 1 John 5:7, which is used to support mainly the theory of 3 persons of the Trinity. The translators were not stupid, they were well informed that this verse is missing in all old Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, the oldest mention is found in a Latin translation. So no Greek evidence for it. But the translators liked it, it provided the best proof of the theory that God is a Trinity, so they included it in KJV. After all, as members of the Church of England, they were strong believers in the Trinity theory, even though this was inherited from the Catholic church.
