1733 New Testament
Modern reproductions have been made of rare English Bibles. Among the most well- known are the 1560 Geneva Bible, the 1599 Geneva Bible, and the 1611 King James Bible. However, our particular hand-bound edition of the King James Version that was printed in 1733 is not a first-edition, nor a last edition, nor an unusually rare edition. And yet that is exactly why we attempted to make this replica. It represents the common Bible of the common family in the American colonies. It reminds us of a generation who were born during the First Great Awakening, who came into adulthood during the French and Indian War, and who became the brave leaders of the American Revolution and as well as the founders of a new American nation.
Look for our 1733 New Testament and other books when you watch the PBS dramatic television series “Sons of Liberty” . In this scene the Rev. Silence Laud reads from one of our New Testaments.
Wow…. just received Saturday my NT. I am so excited and I am so pleased with the beauty, feel and workmanship. Look forward to sharing the gospel at events here in SC as well as NC and Tenn. Have been looking for number of years for God’s word in a translation that would be accurate for time period of the Cow Pens here in SC and to have the binding too … oh bless the LORD oh my soul. Thanks brother James for your obedience our Lord and Savior.
In HIS service
Rev. Bruce Jennings

This is a photo that BL Rhodes emailed me of him holding his 1733 New Testament that I made for him. He is standing by the printing press at the Tennessee State Historic Museum in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. I think that the admission to this museum is free so if you are in the area, it would be a great place to visit.
