    Purple interlinear had an interesting appendix on the cross, which was changed in the navy blue interlinear. I'm sure there are other changes...

    The Watchtower's purple KIT (1969) page 1158, misquotes Dana and Mantey's A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament in an attempt to support their "a god" translation of John 1:1. However, Dr. Mantey protested the Watchtower's dishonest use of his work and threatened a lawsuit. That may have been a reason for the blue revised KIT in 1985 in which quotations from Dana and Mantey are absent.

    By the way my company's second hand bookstore has a copy of the purple (1969) KIT for sale at $25.00. This was a surprise for me because in the past our bookbuyers never purchased Watchtower books. However, I purchased my copy at a Convention in 1969 for $2.00. Glad I still have it. Maybe it will be worth $50.00 in a few years.
