The TNIV in John 6:33

John 6:33 "For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

The second use of 'bread' here in the TNIV is insightful. Both the NKJV and the NIV had "for the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven," referring to Christ himself.

So, contrary to their claims, the CBT have removed a masculine reference to God ('he') and replaced it with a genderless noun. And yet they scoffed at the KJV for using "which!"

This was not only deliberate, but given that they have so strenuously denied doing any such thing, it can only be considered deceptive as well.

UPDATE 2013: Unchanged in the NNIV.
