Iakob Iakobos Jacob James, King James’ conspiracy or New Age Bible plot?

The basic assertion of the statement that the name James was used to honor King James is that the KJB was the first bible to use that name.

I decided to see if this was true. There were several english Bibles prior to the King James Version. From http://bible-researcher.com I was able to obtain sources for the older bibles.

I conducted a search on the James on several bibles that existed prior to the King James. I found that Below are links to the results. (Note: some translations use the spelling Iames, pronounced James)

Wycliffe 1395

Tyndale 1534 (listed as 1525-26)

Coverdale Bible 1535

Geneva Bible 1587

Bishop’s Bible 1568
