1599 Geneva Bible: Luther Edition
A 500th Anniversary Luther Edition of the 1599 venerated Geneva Bible.
It was the Geneva Bible that accompanied our forefathers to the new world. They made history in many ways, not the least of which was a legacy of Scriptural wisdom inspired by the Geneva Bible. The Pilgrims brought the 1599 Geneva Bible with them when they arrived in the New World in 1620. All but forgotten in our day, this version of the Bible was the most widely read and influential English Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
A superb translation, the 1599 Geneva Bible was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day and became the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers and thinkers of that time. Men such as William Shakespeare, John Bunyan, and John Milton used the Geneva Bible in their writings. William Bradford also cited the Geneva Bible in his famous book Of Plymouth Plantation.
The Geneva Bible is unique among all other Bibles. It was the first Bible to use chapters and numbered verses and became the most popular version of its time because of the extensive marginal notes. These more than 300,000 notes were included to explain and interpret the scriptures for the common people. Modern spelling. 1403 pages.
