Product Description

Pastor John Rogers assembled in 1537 a volume that contained, for the first time as part of a complete Bible, all of William Tyndale’s translation work, the 1534 New Testament, the Pentateuch, and the nine historical books, ending with 2 Chronicles. Where there were gaps in Tyndale’s work, Rogers used that of Miles Coverdale (1535).
Archbishop Thomas Cranmer saw to it that the Matthew’s Bible was shown to King Henry VIII, who then licensed the complete Bible in English. Thomas Cromwell, Henry’s Viceregent for church affairs, subsequently encouraged bishops to order copies of the Matthew’s Bible for their churches. Such official sanction sparked tremendous demand for the book.
Features:
  • Facsimile of an excellent copy of the 1537 Matthew’s Bible
  • Features clear, legible type throughout (marginal commentary is in smaller type)
  • Authoritative new preface
  • Great for Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible

    I read all the other reviews and couldn't wait for my copy to arrive....when it finally did it was not what I expected. I could not understand Any of the text, absolutely unreadable. I don't understand how all those reviews were written. So I sent it back and got the 1611 KJV. I am very much enjoying reading this translation.

    "John Rogers, operating under the assumed name 'Thomas Matthew,' was the first person to ever print a complete English Bible that was translated directly from the original Greek & Hebrew. He took William Tyndales New Testament, and completed Tyndales work on the Old Testament, publishing his First Edition in 1537. William Tyndale is frequently referred to as the 'Architect of the English Language,' (even more so than William Shakespeare) as so many of the phrases Tyndale coined are still in our language today." (www.greatsite.com)

    This facsimile edition is a must-have for anyone interested in the evolution of the English language and the rich history of our Christian heritage!

    What a privilege to hold a reprint of one of the most influential early English translations of Scripture in my hands! 100% delighted. I don't mind the text being in black and white at all, as I didn't purchase it to be my everyday reading Bible, but to examine a reproduction of one of the true spiritual masterpieces of English literature. I also have reprints of Tynedale's New Testament, the Geneva Bible, and the first edition of the KJV, which I hold in equal esteem.

    I have always liked to compare the different English translations when I do my Bible reading and research. This is a great addition to my growing collection. I have facsimiles of Tyndale's NT, 1611 KJV first edition, the 1599 Geneva Bible and several modern versions. I'm still learning the old English, but get the jest of what is written. Have noticed they all say pretty much the same thing. It has strengthened my faith in God's unchanging word through the ages and has made me realize and feel sorry for those who fight over words (2 Tim. 2:14) or say one translation is corrupt over another, when in fact they are missing the beauty and message of God's word. They need to read "An Intro to the New Testament Manuscripts and Their Texts" to get the story behind the history of translating and be more objective in their thinking.
