Dean John William Burgon

Plain Commentary on the Four Holy Gospels Vol I     

   This volume has been reproduced from the original work by scanning. The font is small (size 7). So, as a printed book that one can hold in his hands, it is not VERY USEFUL. We apologize for any difficulty reading this volume and have tried to make it ready for the reader. Please enlarge the view on your e-reader. As a result, at this time we are only going to make the volume available as an ebook so that the text can be enlarged and more easily read. It is 404 pages.

Burgon was called the best theologian of his time by his biographer.

Dean Burgon said: “It will suffice to state that this Commentary is not designed for controversial readers; nor yet for those who approach Scriptures chiefly in a critical spirit. Without by any means consciously avoiding real difficulties, or (as the writer hopes) overlooking the results of sacred criticism, his aim has been to produce within moderate limits a Commentary which, (like the blessed Volume it professes to illustrate,) should address itself to readers of all classes. The writer wished that what he wrote might prove useful to unlearned and learned, alike; old and young, wise and simple; the teacher and the taught. His Notes are designed for all who study the Gospel in a devotional frame of mind; who read it in order to live by it; and desire, while they read, to have their attention aroused, their heart informed, and their curiosity in some degree gratified.”

John William Burgon, A Biography: Volume I     

   TOP Publications believes this work will be valuable to some who may not be aware that it exists. This is a reprint of a book authored by Edward M. Goulburn, D.D., D.C.L. [In England a D.D. is an earned degree and a D.C.L. is A Doctor of Civil Law] Dean of Norwich in England, 1864, and it has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. We realize it will not be popular among some ministers of the Bible and Gospel because of its antiquity, but for those who take the time to read it, a reward lies ahead. Some marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this book - a reminder of this book’s long journey from the original publisher to a library and finally to you. As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and is revered by many.

      Dean Goulburn said: “Burgon was in this country the leading religious teacher of his time, who brought all the resources of genius and profound theological learning to rebut the encroachments of Rationalism, by maintaining inviolate the integrity of the written Word of God as the Church has received it; by pointing out its depth, its versatility of application, and absolute inexhaustibility of significance; and by insisting upon it paramount claims to the humble and reverent reception of mankind, as having been “given by Inspiration of God….”By faith we stand” spiritually, And the great object of faith,—the stay and support on which it assures itself in temptation and trial, —is the Word of God.”

   TOP Publications believes this work will be valuable to some who may not be aware that it exists. This is a reprint of a book about the Dean of the University of Chichester in England, 1864, and it has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired.

As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and he is revered by many.

     The work is by Edward Meyrick Goulburn, D.D., D.C.L. (A D.D. is an earned degree in England and a D.C.L. is a Doctorate of Civil Law) Dean of Norwhich who said: “Burgon was in this country the leading religious teacher of his time, who brought all the resources of genius and profound theological learning to rebut the encroachments of Rationalism, by maintaining inviolate the integrity of the written Word of God as the Church has received it; by pointing out its depth, its versatility of application, and absolute inexhaustibility of significance; and by insisting upon it paramount claims to the humble and reverent reception of mankind, as having been “given by Inspiration of God….”By faith we stand” spiritually, And the great object of faith,—the stay and support on which it assures itself in temptation and trial, —is the Word of God.”

     Dean Goulburn, said: “…in studying Dean Burgon’s character and career, has found him to be in every way too large a man to be adequately portrayed on a very small canvass. While the name of person of less note, who yet may have established a claim to be gratefully remembered by those who come after them, are sufficiently preserved from oblivion by a Memoir, there are those, surely, whose intellectual and moral pre-eminence, and whose manifoldness of gift and power, challenge a life…His friends claim for Dean Burgon that, in regard of the variety and versatility of his intellectual powers, the intensity of his moral faculties, and that profound veneration for the Word of God which formed the chief feature both of his spiritual character and of his teaching, he showed a pre-eminence among the men of his generation, which abundantly entitles him to a Life as distinct from a Memoir. The outline of his character, not to be traced, will, it is hoped, serve to justify this claim.”

I. The first character, then, in which, when his name is mentioned, John William Burgon is thought of, is that of a theologian…

 II. But I must pass from his intellectual gifts to speak of the faculties of a more moral cast, in which he was equally versatile.” (pp. 341 349) (see pp 396 - 400 a calendar of the flood)

     The appendices alone are worth the cost of the book because they are Dean Burgon’s explanation of:

1. Excerpts from the Notes and Memoranda on Shakespeare

2. The Raising of Jairus’ Daughter, a Prophetic History

3. Calendar of the Flood

     Dean Burgon’s works such as “Revision Revised, are second to none for defending the “Traditional Text” upon which stands the King James Bible. Any criticism of his work is worthless if and when his comments are thoroughly understood. His biography is a testimony to his righteousness and virtue. It is no wonder that God chose this man to defend His Words against the apostate in this age.

      His other works include “The Pastoral Office,” “The Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text, Vol 2,” “the Last Twelve Verses of Mark,” “Inspiration and Interpretation,” The Traditional Text,” “Revision Revised,” as well as many articles and sermons. He was Dean of Chichester and the religious leader of his age. Stray marks are a result of the antiquity of the work.

As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and is revered by many.

 Dr. Burgon said: “In the front of any treatise on the Christian Ministry, must be placed the study of that much-neglected book, —the Bible. It is the one revelation to man of God’s mind and will, nothing which is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is “to be required of any man that it should be believed as an article of the Faith.” All other books which relate to the science of Divinity, have grown directly out of this. They are expositions of its teaching, or formularies of its doctrines; commentaries on its meaning, or exhortations based upon its precepts; treatises on its idiom, or discussions of its difficulties; unfoldings of its prophecies, or helps to its correct understanding. They all point back to the Bible: appeal to it, refer to it, submit themselves to its decision. From this celestial armoury, the minister of CHRIST derives all his weapons. At home and abroad, from what is here revealed he makes himself and others “wise unto salvation.”

Revision Revised     

   The importance of this book cannot be underestimated. There is no one book that exposes Westcott and Hort's false Greek Text and false Greek theory behind that text any more thoroughly and convincingly than The Revision Revised. Dean Burgon defends the traditional text of the New Testament. He shows clearly the defects in both manuscript "B" (Vaticanus) and manuscript "Aleph" (Sinaiticus). It is very important to see the arguments contained in this historic volume because virtually the same Greek text of Westcott and Hort (1881) FORMS THE BASIS OF ALMOST ALL OF THE MODERN VERSIONS AND PERVERSIONS.

     This book is copyrighted because it contains an invaluable, extensive summary and comments by Dr. D. A. Waite, the Dean William Burgon of our time.

The Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels, Vol. 1     

     There is a battle over the Bible that is raging in liberal, neo-evangelical, and even many fundamental churches, schools, colleges, universities, and seminaries. One of the most recurring falsehoods that is used by the enemies of the Greek Traditional Text or Received Text is the almost unbelievable falsehood that the Greek text was not in existence until 1516 A.D. with Erasmus. This volume thunders out an effective reply to the serious errors of this false position. It proves beyond any reasonable doubt that the Traditional Text was in the hands of the churches in a continuous time line from the original Apostolic times down to the present.

Inspiration and Interpretation     

     In this book Dean Burgon delivers seven sermons preached to his students at the University of Oxford. In the sermons, he defends the inerrancy of the Bible--down to the very words, syllables, and letters of it. He also gives sound principles of Biblical interpretation. Before these seven constructive sermons, the Dean makes a 228 page answer to "Essays and Reviews." In this answer he shows himself a champion of Bible believing truth and an opponent of every heresy and heretic attempt to dishonor God's inerrant Words. This book is a continuation of the Dean's "The Traditional      Text."

The Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text, Vol. 2     

     In this book, Dean Burgon examines fifteen reasons why the Vatican and Sinai manuscripts, which underlie the Westcott and Hort Greek text, corrupted the traditional received text. The Dean Burgon Society believes the traditional received Greek text is the closest to the original manuscripts.

The Last Twelve Verses of Mark     

     Dean Burgon demonstrates that the methodology of modern textual criticism fails to hold up when examined against the last twelve verses of Mark. The entire system of textual critics must be rejected. He shows that Bishop B. F. Westcott and Professor F. J. A. Hort and their followers are categorically wrong in their approach to the text of the New Testament. Dean Burgon's book is a fatal blow to the manuscripts "B" and "Aleph," which are the favorite manuscripts of the modern textual critics.
