Guide to the notes and commentaries in the posted books

Except the square-bracketed items, left margin notes on each page are Tyndale’s, from his 1534 New Testament, and the notes at chapter ends, called “The Notes”, are from John Rogers. Note, however, that Rogers' notes may be his own or taken from others, including Tyndale, Luther and other Reformers, and various Church fathers. ( Thus Tyndale's commentaries may appear both in the margins and in the end notes. This formatting follows generally John Rogers' in the 1549 Matthew Bible.) Rogers' notes are broad ranging, and may be historical, philological, doctrinal, or other.

This editor’s notes may include comments on old English words, or brief definitions of Greek terms taken from Strong’s Concordance, with Strong’s numbers provided. There are also notes identifying some of Rogers' references, for example explaining who Pliny and Vegetius were, and historical and doctrinal notes. As to doctrine, when Rogers published the Matthew Bible in the 16th century, he was concerned to shed light upon issues that were then particularly problematic, such as justification by faith alone. In the same spirit, we occasionally add notes concerning current issues, drawn mainly from the teaching of Tyndale, Miles Coverdale, Martin Luther, John Chrysostom, Richard Hooker, or others.
