TEXTUS RECEPTUS

Textus Receptus: Latin for “received text.”

...The term is most often used in NT studies to refer to Erasmus’ Greek text of 1535. The Authorised, or King James, Version of the Bible is based upon the Textus Receptus.

The Textus Receptus is widely criticised today because of the haste with which it was produced and its heavy reliance on late rather than early Greek manuscripts.
