King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


A Jewish mystical sect somewhat resembling the Pharisees. They "affected great purity. They originated about B.C. 100, and" disappeared from history after the destruction of Jerusalem. "They are not directly mentioned in Scripture, although they may" "be referred to in Matt. 19:11, 12, Col. 2:8, 18, 23."
