17:3And beholde, there appeared vnto them Moses, and Elias, talking with him.

17:10And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the Scribes that Elias must first come?
17:11And Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, Certeinely Elias must first come, and restore all thinges.

17:16And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heale him.

17:18And Iesus rebuked the deuill, and he went out of him: and the childe was healed at that houre.
17:19Then came the disciples to Iesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
17:20And Iesus said vnto them, Because of your vnbeliefe: for verely I say vnto you, if ye haue faith as much as is a graine of mustarde seede, ye shall say vnto this mountaine, Remooue hence to yonder place, and it shall remoue: and nothing shalbe vnpossible vnto you.
17:21Howbeit this kinde goeth not out, but by prayer and fasting.
17:22And they being in Galile, Iesus said vnto them, The Sonne of man shall be deliuered into the handes of men,
17:23And they shall kill him, but the thirde day shall he rise againe: and they were very sorie.

17:25He sayd, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Iesus preuented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whome doe the Kings of the earth take tribute, or polle money? of their children, or of strangers?
17:26Peter sayd vnto him, Of strangers. Then said Iesus vnto him, Then are the children free.
17:27Neuerthelesse, lest we should offend them: goe to the sea, and cast in an angle, and take the first fish that commeth vp, and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt finde a piece of twentie pence: that take, and giue it vnto them for me and thee.

Geneva Bible 1560

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers strongly preferred this version.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
