King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, 1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us,
2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word.
3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, 3 Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,
4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed . 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
