The supernatural attack on scriptures can be clearly seen in altered verses such as Mark 2:23. The “anti Quantum Effect” defenders have been hard at work explaining away the use of the word corn instead of grain in the Bible.
Let us say that in the early 1600’s the Scholars who compiled and constructed the King James Bible did use the word corn instead of grain. Corn was used in over a hundred verses in both the Old and New Testaments. OK… so what’s the problem with this?
We know that corn or maize was originally cultivated in the Americas. Here’s what CampSilos.com has to say about the history of corn:
“Scientists believe people living in central Mexico developed corn at least 7000 years ago. It was started from a wild grass called teosinte. Teosinte looked very different from our corn today. The kernels were small and were not placed close together like kernels on the husked ear of modern corn.
When Europeans like Columbus made contact with people living in North and South America, corn was a major part of the diet of most native people. When Columbus “discovered” America, he also discovered corn. But up to this time, people living in Europe did not know about corn.”
I chose to quote CampSilos.com because they had a more concise narrative than other sources. They all give the same history of corn anyhow, so there is no problem with the authority or truthfulness of CampSilos.com
Now we know that it would have been possible for the human authors of the King James Bible to be fully aware of corn. But, they would have surely known that corn was not native to Isreal. These men were scholars of the highest order and went to great lengths to be as accurate, textually, historically, geographically, and spiritually as was possible.
Corn or maize was new to England and Europe, and still not yet widely grown when the King James Bible was written. This is where the “Mandela Effect” deniers are correct. But they now have an insurmountable problem with these verses:
Matthew 12:1 (KJV)
12 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.
Mark 2:23 (KJV)
23 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.
Luke 6:1 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
This is not affecting just the New Testament. There are plenty of instances of “ears of corn” in the Old Testament now.
Leviticus 2:14 (KJV)
14 And if thou offer a meat offering of thy firstfruits unto the Lord, thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green ears of corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.
Isaiah 17:5 (KJV)
5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
If, as the naysayers tell us that the words corn and grain are interchangeable then how do they explain the ears of corn? These verses used to say, “heads of grain”, not ears of corn. Grain stalks produce heads of grain, not ears of corn! Any child from the 1600’s would have known that, especially the authors of the 1611 King James Bible. It seems the only people who do not know that are the naysayers.
The fact that this error is now in the Bible damages it’s credibility and reliability to an unbelieving world. It will be used against us. If I had seen these verses when I was an atheist I would have dismissed the Bible as utter and absolute nonsense! I would have probably never opened a Bible again.
Many paintings and movie scenes depict Jesus and the disciples in a field of grain.
