    They have printed individual books of the Old Testament early on , and then the new Testament .{ Individual Books ? }

    Then the complete Bible a few times , as well as the Kingdom Interlinear , a word for word translation of the Greek into English.

    As well as printing Byington`s Bible ,and the King James Bible .

    Were their any others that I have missed ?

    And the big question is are there any scriptures in any of these that contradict Watchtower Theology ?

    All of the Scriptures contradict Watchtower Theology!

    The Watchtower characterizes the whole bible as primarily a book of government, which contrasts man's various governments vs. God's government (kingdom)

    But the bible is actually a book that shows how a person can get right with God (avoid the penalty of sin), primarily through the use of two contracts (Testaments) .... The Old and the New Testaments. The word Testament means contract or Covenant.

    The Watchtower shakes their fist at God and basically says in essence, " I don't need your grace (covenant); my works ought to be enough for you".... like Cain.

    Also like Cain, that sacrifice is rejected, while only the blood sacrifice of Able is acceptable. This helps to explain the vitriolic hatred that Jehovah's Witnesses have for Christians that accept the blood covenant that Jesus offered to "whosoever", while they reject it each Memorial.

    JW's are very proud of their works, and so they get what they ask for .... a judgment based upon their works.

    In Christianity, adherents see the futility of earning sonship with God and accept the work of God on the Cross as a "Substitution" for their personal sin penalty, which clears the way for a legal adoption into God's family if sought.
