“What Bible” do we use?
We use use the “same Bible” as other Christians:

We use the Septuagint canon of the Old Testament, because these are the “Hebrew Scriptures” read by Christ in the synagogues and used by the Apostles wherever they preached.

We use the New Testament canon developed by the Orthodox Church over the early centuries by the Orthodox Church.

The Bible as we know it was defined by the Orthodox Church. The Textus Receptus, on which all canons and translations are based, was given to the world by the Orthodox Church.

Quite simply and objectively, Orthodox Christianity is the Church of the Bible. No other Christian confession can state, as the Orthodox Church unequivocally does, that it gave the Bible to the world and that it continues to proclaim the Scriptures in their ancient, original, Apostolic, understanding.

We clearly recognize that all English translations fall short of the original Scriptural texts. The King James Version (KJV) is, arguably the most-accurate English translation. For practical reasons in English-speaking lands the Orthodox Church uses the modified New King James Version (NKJV) for the instruction and spiritual edification of the faithful. The Orthodox Study Bible is our standard “Pew Bible” and home study Bible.
