The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible

Today we’d like to introduce you to the Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible. The reason we’d like to highlight this Bible for you is was just released and it endorses the practice of head covering.

The New Testimony Editor is Dr. Gerald Bilkes (PhD, Princeton Theological Seminary) and the General Editor is Dr. Joel R. Beeke (President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary). Here’s a short promo video for this Bible:

In their notes on 1 Corinthians 11 they say that head covering was the “universal custom (practice) of the churches.” They rightly call it an ordinance and say that “by man having his head uncovered and by woman having her head covered, all glory points to God in public worship.”

One of my favorite things about their notes on 1 Corinthians 11 is the “Thoughts for Personal/Family Worship.” I like this section because it takes what you just learned about head covering and then asks you what you’re going to do with it. They say:

“When you come to the house of God for corporate worship, how you conduct yourself matters. Paul argues for proper decorum in public worship according to His created order. When you enter the house of God for worship, how should you act in a way that honors the glory and will of the Lord?”

We’d love it if the followers of the Head Covering Movement would get behind this Bible by either buying a copy yourself or letting others know about it. These men have taken an unpopular stand for the ongoing practice of head covering and we’d like to support them for that. You can buy a copy on Amazon here.

  • I keep seeing reformed this and reformed that – wasn’t the Reformation when Martin Luther nailed his complaints to the Catholic church’s door? I really don’t get what you guys mean when you guys say it or use it. How does the RHKJVSB differ from the KJV? What is the ‘Reformed perspective’ that it is written in and what does it mean? Is it is some Reformed Baptist / Calvinistic Baptist denominational thing?
