There's a lovely 1611 facsimile of KJ with Apochrypha with original orthography. Not for everyone, it's a little fussy, but I find it beautiful.

This is the Blackletter font right (Gothic type)? Where can I purchase this? You'd think for it being a 400th anniversary they wouldn't just use the Roman facsimile.

No, not Gothic type. I honestly don't remember where I got it, but check Amazon. It's not expensive.

Nah that's not the true 1611 version then. I want the one with the Blackletter font (Gothic) which is very expensive. I was trying to find a version that was inexpensive.

I see that in the intorduction to Tobit that the OSB has a cross reference to John 3:16. Is this correct?

Quote
The Book of Tobit is a love story. A father sends his only son into the world so that he may find a bride, save her, and bring her back rejoicing to his parents.

A comparison with John 3:16 could read

A father                                                   For God
sends his only son into the world                  so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
so that he may find a bride,                         that whosoever believeth in him
save her,                                                  should not perish,
and bring her back rejoicing to his parents.     but have everlasting life.
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

Interesting. I saw that too. The parallel is strong; however, I am wondering if John 3:16 is really a reference to Tobit as such. How does one determine this idea of reference?

I think it was just to draw the parallel so that people can see how this story is ultimately fulfilled in the person of Christ and bears witness to Him.
