That’s actually a question no one will ever know. But in 1601 the “flaming” homosexual known as King James commissioned 47 so called scholars to write and re-write the Bible. Shakespeare and his long time lover, Sir Francis Bacon was among them. We know Shakespeare’s fondness for prose, poetry and sonnets, so we look at Psalms and Songs of Solomon and find Shakespeare’s fingerprints all over them. David didn’t exist and Solomon is highly suspect at best, therefore Shakespeare and Sir Francis Bacon are the likely culprits.
In fact, Shakespeare left his name in Psalms the 46th chapter. Known for his love of puzzles and wit, Shakespeare was 46 years old at the time. And like most of the writers and translators, he wanted to remain anonymous on the Bible project. So, he cleverly made the word shake the 46th word of the 46th Psalm, and spear the 46th word from the end of the 46th Psalm. The word “Selah” appears as an explanation point that can be found in various places throughout the Bible. So, William Shakespeare actually gave a “shout out” to himself in the Bible; unbelievable. Of course Christians want to call it coincidence but there are no coincidences. Maybe, once again it was God trying to warn folks to watch out for that Book.
And who was William Shakespeare? A guy who wrote a few plays. Did Shakespeare write all the plays attributed to him? No. In fact, he was known as more of a businessman then a writer. A few people who wanted to remain anonymous gave Shakespeare their plays and he simply put his name on them, produced them and took all the credit. By the time the Bible project came along, ye ol’ William was the most popular guy in town. So quite naturally he was asked by King James to do a little editing.
It wasn’t so much the Bible that bought Shakespeare and King James together; it was a fear of witches. King James believed witches were everywhere and most importantly they were out to get him. He personally conducted witch trials and burned a lot of witches alive. Quite naturally when Shakespeare came along with ghosts and witches in his plays King James embraced his work (the work he claimed was his anyway). King James wrote a book on demonology which offers more proof that King James didn’t believe in the Bible that he himself was publishing. So, the next times you pick up a Bible don’t think about David or Solomon; think about a couple of its real authors; William Shakespeare and his 'gay' lover Sir Francis Bacon.
