I am just an ordinary seeker of truth, which I find in scripture and history and not in made made presumptive conjecture

You would do better to be looking in the right place. The truth of God is found in a person. He's not a book nor will you find him living in there.

Many new versions attack the deity of Christ by removing "the Lord" in Matthew 28:6.

Here is the King James Bible. Many new versions remove "the Lord" and change it to "he" or his body.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. - Matthew 28:6

Interestingly, Gregory of Nyssa made a special note of the implications of the pure Bible text here:

Gregory of Nyssa: Dogmatic Treatises; Select Writings and Letters
To Eustathia, Ambrosia, and Basilissa

As at the end He caused by virtue of the Incarnation that, though the body was disunited from the soul, yet the indivisible Godhead which had been blended once for all with the subject (who possessed them) was not stripped from that body any more than it was from that soul, but while it was in Paradise along with the soul, and paved an entrance there in the person of the Thief for all humanity, it remained by means of the body in the heart of the earth, and therein destroyed him that had the power of Death (wherefore His body too is called “the Lord" on account of that inherent Godhead) ...

This text has truly overwhelming support, Greek, Latin, Syriac, early church writers, the omission is a common little piddle error, placed in many corruption versions because of Vaticanus and Sinaiticus.

Many new versions also removed "the Lord" from 1 Cor 15:47 which removes another proof Christ is God.

1 Corinthians 15:47 (AV)
The first man is of the earth, earthy:
the second man is the Lord from heaven.

John William Burgon has an interesting study on this verse:

The Causes of the Corruption of the Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels: Being the Sequel to the Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels (1896)
