We have his promise, there's nothing covered up that won't be revealed. And we've never had so much historic data, timelines published worldwide, at our fingertips.
So, click here for the timeline of the translations of our Bible.
We just need to be persuaded that every word in the Greek and Hebrew texts published back in the 1500s together with Jerome's Latin translation published way back in 405, reflected God's edited protected inspired oracles having zero errors when establishing facts. Certainly billions of printed and electronic bible translations in every language are based on those scripts, coming from a much **simpler era (and vocabulary). And then, reconcile the historic timelines, whenever discrepancies were entered knowingly (or not) elsewhere.
** From the first Hebrew word "B'resh ith" (In the beginning) in Genesis 1:1 to the last word "Amen" in Revelation 22:21, scholars (and computer programs) have counted 443,114 words in the original languages — 304,901 words in the Hebrew/Aramaic Old Testament, and 138,213 words in the Greek New Testament (latest NA28 edition).
One scholarly account, Strongs Concordance first published in 1890, shows there are 8,674 unique Hebrew/Aramaic words excluding prefixes and suffixes with 641 words accounting for 80% of the Hebrew text. There are 5,523 unique words in Biblical Greek of which 319 account for 80% of the Greek text. For students with minimal (or zero) knowledge of the original alphabets, his numbering system has enabled them to start studying any Biblical Greek or Hebrew word by simply entering its code.
