This volume is the 1647 Catechism. The proof texts are from the modern ESV (English Standard Version). The ESV is based on the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible as found in Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (2nd ed., 1983), and on the Greek text in the 1993 editions of the Greek New Testament (4th corrected ed.), published by the United Bible Societies (UBS), and Novum Testamentum Graece (27th ed.), edited by Nestle and Aland. Throughout, the translation team has benefited greatly from the massive textual resources that have become readily available recently, from new insights into biblical laws and culture, and from current advances in Hebrew and Greek lexicography and grammatical understanding. Also included is an index of subjects from the questions and answers. This 246 page volume is generous with space left on each of the pages for you to write your notes and remarks as you study over the years. The resulting book will be valued by you for the perspective your study provides and by your descendants as a priceless keepsake and instruction manual.
