Geneva and Bishops' Bibles

During the reign of Queen Mary, many English reformers fled to Geneva, Switzerland to avoid persecution. Under the leadership of William Whittingham, they compiled the Geneva Bible, translating it directly from Hebrew and Greek with help from Tyndale s work. For the first time, the Bible was divided into chapters with verses, packed with notes and commentary, and filled with helpful cross-references. The result was essentially the first ever Study Bible. Geneva Bibles were printed from 1560 - 1630. The Church of England recognized the scholarship and caliber of the Geneva Bibles. The notes, however, proved to be very critical of both the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church. Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury, led the project of updating the Great Bible.

King James Version Bibles

When King James I assumed the throne, there was great tension between the Puritans (with their Geneva Bibles) and the Church of England (with their Bishops Bibles). The king responded by calling for a new translation. University scholars worked in teams to translate directly from the Greek and Hebrew. Their work was reviewed by church leaders and ratified by the king himself. Though translation notes and cross references remained, all commentary was removed. The result was not only reliable, but beautifully written. King James Bibles have been printed from 1611 to the present.
