    RE: The New Testament Study.

    The Comma Johanneum in the KJV translation. The evidence both external and internal is against its authenticity. Joseph Smith was unaware that Erasmus added the reading between around 1520 .

    (1 John 5:7 KJV) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one= (*heis, the #1). Strong's Concordance.

    (1 John 5:7 JST) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one*. More, Tri-unity examples:

    “… true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God.”(2 Nephi 31:21)

    And thus will the Father bear record of me, and the Holy Ghost will bear record unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the Holy Ghost are one. (3Nephi 11:36)

    Thomas Wayment's "THE NEW TESTAMENT: A Translation for Latter-day Saints. A Study Bible" is wonderful. I was lucky enough to grab one (before they temporarily went out of stock everywhere after only two weeks). The translation is much more readable than the standard King James Version, and uses the latest scholarship. There are also great footnotes throughout the text. Thomas Wayment is a faithful BYU professor who has spent years on this.
