I vote for "error".  The Bible of Bibles, BibleGateway.com, proves there are 942 occurrences of "Jesus" in the King James Version.

P.S.  If there's a runoff poll, I vote for "foolishness."

Huffington Post:

"The King James Version would make its debut in the year of 1611 (before
the letter J existed, so the name 'Jesus' did not appear once)."

We report, you decide.
