Introducing The Alabaster Manuscripts Edition


When looking at the scriptures, we must be reminded that the words we read are from a specific culture, tradition, and wisdom formed thousands of years ago. Originally, the earliest written recordings of the Bible were on large scrolls; or manuscripts.

By eliminating verse numbers, chapters numbers, and paragraph breaks—The Alabaster Manuscript Edition displays the biblical text closer to how it was historically written.

Printed in New King James.

Experience Scripture Anew

It's fresh: By looking at the Bible in a manuscript edition, we see the text anew. It eliminates any preconceived notions of what we think the scripture is saying and allows us to approach the Bible in a fresh way.

It helps us discover new themes: Verse numbers, chapter numbers, or breaks of any kind were not part of how the Bible was originally written. Instead, the books of the Bible were seen as one continuous entity. When using a manuscript—with the entire book laid out before you—new themes and insights emerge.

It's a personal canvas: The open, negative space in the margins are for writing, marking, highlighting, and drawing lines of connection. Write questions, thoughts, inquiries, etc.
