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.

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.
