Product Description

Original translation. Original commentary. Original illustrations. If you are looking for one of the most original Bibles—this, is it! Get the first English Bible ever to be translated from the original languages of Greek and Hebrew. This is a facsimile of the Geneva Bible, which means you get an exact copy of the original (including margin notes from the translators!). Use this Bible as your main translation, next to another version, or simply as a must-have keepsake from Christian history!

The Geneva Bible was a monumental achievement in the history of Protestant Bible translation. Born in a time of religious and political upheaval it helped foster Scripture literacy among the common people of England and offered for the first time “study resources” to make the Bible easier to understand.

Features that made this Bible revolutionary then and still makes it valuable now:
• Text printed in readable roman type
• Division of the text into numbered verses and includes cross references
• Italic type used for words not in the original languages
• Comes with the Apocrypha (like most Bibles printed before 1800)
• Extensive textual and explanatory commentary placed in the margins
• Words/phrases displayed at the heads of pages to promote Scripture memorization
• Over 30 maps and woodcuts illustrating biblical scenes, including labeled diagrams of the Ark of the Covenant, Tabernacle, and more
• 7-point type size
Features that make this particular version of the Geneva Bible a top pick:
• Clear facsimile—this is a copy, yet it is still easy to read
• Original and authentic—complete, original commentary, maps, and woodcut illustrations
• Added context—solid overviews and an in-depth introduction to the Geneva Bible
• Quality—includes ribbon markers, sewn binding, and more!

Enjoy seeing original illustrations from the Geneva Bible! Not all modern Bibles include illustrations, yet the Geneva Bible of 1560 did. It was created so both the common people and church leaders could deepen their understanding of the Bible—and included labelled diagrams and maps!
