1733 king James New Testaments

 

Modern reproductions have been made of rare English Bibles.  Among the most well- known are the 1560 Geneva Bible, the 1599 Geneva Bible, and the 1611 King James Bible.  However, our particular hand-bound edition of the King James Version that was printed in 1733 is not a first-edition, nor a last edition, nor an unusually rare edition.   And yet that is exactly why we attempted to make this replica.   It represents the common Bible of the common family in the American colonies.  It reminds us of a generation who were born during the First Great Awakening, who came into adulthood during the French and Indian War, and who became the brave leaders of the American Revolution and as well as the founders of a new American nation.

Wow.... just received Saturday my NT. I am so excited and I am so pleased with the beauty, feel and workmanship. Look forward to sharing the gospel at events here in SC as well as NC and Tenn. Have been looking for number of years for God's word in a translation that would be accurate for time period of the Cow Pens here in SC and to have the binding too ... oh bless the LORD oh my soul. Thanks brother James for your obedience our Lord and Savior.


In HIS service

God speed

Look for this book when you visit the George Washington Inn in Port Angeles, Washington. 

Look for our 1733 New Testament and other books when you watch the dramatic television series “Courage, New Hampshire”.  In this scene the  Rev. Silence Laud reads from one of our New Testaments.  The show is also know as “Sons Of Liberty” on PBS.

I covered the above 1733 New Testament with copper for my vegan daughter.

The Smithsonian Channel produced a movie about Thomas Jefferson creating his own Gospel book .  He took two New Testaments, discarded Acts thru Revelation, cut the miracles out, had it bound and thus created his own book of the morals teachings of Jesus.

The photo below was taken during the filming of “Jefferson’s Secret Bible”.  The actor cut up two of our 1733 New Testament text blocks illustrating the process  Jefferson.
