    Default Geneva Bible

So my guess would be at the earliest if it were literature then 1560 onward should be looked at. There are a few contenders, the last of which would be King James bible of 1611 (I figured that was getting close to 450 yr mark rather than "just under 500 years".

    The bishops bible was published in 1568 so may be worth a look.

    This one jumped out at me (personal bias) - 1564.

    Monas Hieroglyphica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I might draw up a list of possible books and share the links in one hit rather than lengthening this thread too much.


    Next I will look at art, sculpture, etc created in this time frame.
    The Geneva Bible was published in 1560. it was translated in Geneva, Switzerland by the Puritans. The Puritans would become the Pilgrims, who would be come the Founding Fathers.

    An interesting piece of trivia about the Geneva Bible. It was the first Bible to have numbered chapters and verses. And clues to the code can be found in the chapter and verse numbers of the Bible. I have a copy of it, and there are some similarities to the King James. It has a ton of margin notes and even calls the Pope the Antichrist.

    I don't know if it has a Key because there does not appear to be any reference points for drawing something on the pages.
    This is very intresting:

    The irony is that none of the groups named in the preceding paragraph used a King James Bible nor would they have used it if it had been given to them free. The Bible in use by those groups until it went out of print in 1644, was the Geneva Bible. The first Geneva Bible, both Old and New Testaments, was first published in English in 1560 in what is now Geneva, Switzerland,* William Shakespeare, John Bunyan, John Milton, the Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620, and other luminaries of that era used the Geneva Bible exclusively.

    Here's Proverbs 3:13 (Geneva Bible):

    Proverbs 3
    1
    My son, forget not thou my Law, but let thine heart keep my commandments.
    2
    For they shall increase the length of thy days and the years of life, and thy
    prosperity.
    3
    Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them on thy neck, and write them
    upon the table of thine heart.
    4
    So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
    5
    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own wisdom.
    6
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy ways.
    7
    Be not wise in thine own eyes: but fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
    8
    So health shall be unto thy navel, and marrow unto thy bones.
    9
    Honor the Lord with thy riches, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase.
    10
    So shall thy barns be filled with abundance, and thy presses shall burst with
    new wine.
    11
    My son, refuse not the chastening of the Lord, neither be grieved with his
    correction.
    12
    For the Lord correcteth him, whom he loveth, even as the father doeth the
    child in whom he delighteth.
    13
    Blessed is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth
    understanding.
    14
    For the merchandise thereof is better than the merchandise of silver, and the
    gain thereof is better than gold.
    15
    It is more precious than pearls: and all things that thou canst desire, are not to
    be compared unto her.
    16
    Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand riches and glory.
    17
    Her ways are ways of pleasure, and all her paths prosperity.

    And line 18?
    If we don't have the key, we can't open whatever it is we don't have that it unlocks. So what purpose would be served in finding whatever need be unlocked, which we don't have, without first having found the key what unlocks it?

    just a quick point :- there is no mention of any edition of the bible in the bibliography or the time line at the back of th=e LRB,

    if someone has the companion book, could you cross reference these two parts in both books and see if there is any difference

    thanks

    [quote=astreeturover;530369][quote=HappyThoth;530343]

    [18:57] <APPRENTICE> I am just asking if the "artifact"is older than 500 years.
    [18:58] <sacred_prize> The misquote was about me using an artifact in London. The artifact is just under 500 years old, but it is not the only or major artifact.



    Not the only artefact........two interlocking keys two artefacts........Don't forget the Book of Truth is in the Hebrew side..........so two bibles, one English one Hebrew.......its how to use the keys.

    hi HMBL,

    the bibliography at the back of the LRB and the one in the companion if there is one, are the same books listed in both ?

    cheers

    Hello rjuk,
    Yes, there IS a Bibliography in both the LRB and the Companion.
    The Companion appears to have more entries than the LRB.

    As to any mention of a Bible. Yes.
    The entry below appears in both books:
    JONES, A. (editor), "The Jerusalem Bible", London, 1974, ISBN 0-38549-918-3

    Hope this helps...

    ~HDF~
