Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
Beginning in 1604, King James I of England commissioned a committee to bring a new translation of the Bible into English. In 1611, just 85 years after William Tyndale’s English New Testament appeared in the common tongue, the Bible known as the King James Version was completed and made available to the public. It quickly became the standard translation for English-speaking Protestants. Its language and delicate prose had a profound impact on subsequent literature and remains one of the best-selling Bible translations. This edition contains the Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
