The Uncensored Bible – Expanded Thomas Edition

The Uncensored Bible – Expanded Thomas Edition – Under Construction

“Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”

~I Thessalonians 5:21-22 NKJV

 

In an effort to have a more complete, accurate, and honest Bible – we’re compiling the various pieces of the puzzle to the Uncensored Bible project on this page. This is no small task, we ask for patience as it evolves.

In the year 1611 the Bible was translated from Latin into English. Back then the Bible contained a total of 80 books and the last 14 books, which today have been excluded, made up the end of the Old Testament and were as follows:

  • 1 Esdras
  • 2 Esdras
  • Tobit
  • Judith
  • The rest of Esther
  • The Wisdom of Solomon
  • Ecclesiasticus
  • Baruch with the epistle Jeremiah
  • The Songs of the 3 Holy children
  • The history of Susana
  • bel and the dragon
  • The prayer for Manasses
  • 1 Maccabees
  • 2 Maccabees

In 1684 all of these books were removed from all versions except for a 1611 edition, which was the very first edition of the King James Version.

William Tyndale’s final New Testament translation of 1535 was completed just before he was captured, imprisoned, and executed in 1536. Tyndale’s friend John Rogers published his New Testament in a very important Reformation Bible called the Matthew Bible in 1537. Rogers also added commentaries called “The Notes.” Rogers was martyred in 1555, burned at the stake in Smithfield, England.

The October Testament contains the full New Testament of William Tyndale, some of his prologues to the gospels and epistles, and John Rogers’ notes, all gently updated by Ruth Magnusson Davis.

In 2009, Davis founded the New Matthew Bible project, dedicated to gently updating the Matthew Bible for today. In early 2016 the New Testament was published as ‘The October Testament.’ This pdf edition contains emendments through to June 2021. Ruth’s gentle editorial hand in the work is almost unnoticeable; Tyndale continues to shine through and Rogers’ style in the notes is distinctly his.

Readers often comment on the flow and the clarity of the New Matthew Bible scriptures, and on the beauty of the original style. Because the Matthew Bible was the primary source of the King James Version, people will find much that is familiar here, but will find it much easier to understand than the KJV. (Computer studies have shown that the New Testament of the King James Bible is 83% taken from Tyndale’s New Testament in the Matthew Bible.)

The name ‘October Testament’ recalls Martin Luther’s ‘September Testament.’ More significantly, however, just as the advent of October signals the approach of the end of a calendar year, so it also reminds us that the year of the Lord is drawing on to its close.

The “Study Bible” – The Geneva Bible.

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James Version by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th-century English Protestantism and was used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress (1678). It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower (Pilgrim Hall Museum has collected several Bibles of Mayflower passengers).

The Geneva Bible was used by many English Dissenters, and it was still respected by Oliver Cromwell’s soldiers at the time of the English Civil War, in the booklet “Cromwell’s Soldiers’ Pocket Bible”. The Geneva Bible Notes are marginal notes on the Geneva Bible written by John Calvin and other leaders of the Reformation. This commentary is interesting for its unrelenting effort to build a vision of Christianity that, according to the Reformers, reflected the early Church’s doctrines and beliefs. The Geneva Bible and its notes probably shaped the religious worldview of the fiercely devout and God-fearing early generations of Americans.

  • Restores an accurate order to the books as they were originally written;
  • Corrects many notorious errors found in virtually all previous English translations, such as Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 14, Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 5, and Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23;

  • Includes extensive footnotes.

 

A word on Canon:

Canon comes from man, not God – which is why there are so many that disagree with one another.

The Apostate Church of Romanism (Catholicism) holds some Apocrypha as canon, yet the various Christian orthodoxies also have various canons of what books should be “official” scripture – considered to be divinely inspired.
