On the June 1, 1918, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society introduced a pocket commentary on the Book of Revelation, based largely on the 4th century Codex Sinaiticus. The complete title of this book reads, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", with the subtitle, According to the Sinaitic Text. In a note on page 3 of the Watchtower it states, "The familiar wording of the King James Version of our English Bible has been adhered to as closely, as possible, being altered only when necessary, to make the reading correspond to the Sinaitic Manuscript of the Greek text. This text is the oldest and most perfect known, though it had not been discovered at the time the 'Authorized' translation was made." Many persons who are familiar with the Society's publications may not have been aware that this publication even existed, and for good reason. Very few were printed.
