Tab Name:

The work is intended for laymen of its day to understand the Bible, with brief notes, comments, definitions and cross references--a poor man's study Bible.

The Family Bible "with brief notes and instruction [and cross references], designed to give the results of critical investigation, and to assist the Reader to understand the meaning of the Holy Spirit in the inspired word" was first published in 3 volumes in 1851 by the American Tract Society. The comments follow the Authorized Version/KJV.

This Bible was designed "to assist common readers to understand the meaning of the Holy Spirit in the Bible." Marginal references were from the English Polyglot Bible. Massachusetts Clergyman and social reformer (he was active in the Temperance and Sabbath Movements as well as the American Tract Society.

Rev. Justin Edwards (1787-1853) wrote the notes and instructions for the Bible. The marginal Scripture references from the Polyglot Bible were included.


"The object of the NOTES in this Family Bible is to assist common readers to understand the teaching of the Holy Spirit in the revealed word, by giving, in the plainest and briefest manner, the results of sound, judicious critical and prayerful investigation.

Some of the INSTRUCTIONS suggested by each chapter, are added in the hope of inducing all who read the Bible to form the habit of drawing from it such practical instructions as will tend most to their growth in knowledge and in grace, and to furnish them thoroughly for every good work.

The endeavor rightly to apprehend and rightly to express the meaning of the Holy Ghost in the passages examined, has been delightful; and it is hoped that, through the divine blessing, great and lasting benefits will result to many."


Recently updated to correct the description and to prevent Jude comments from appearing as Judges.
Thank you again. I am a lay person and all of these materials draw me closer to Jesus--well done!
