NOTES on this Page:|
- The small letters in the margins are cross references.
The Great Bible had no Marginal Notes, just references to other related Scripture.
Although you can see that Scripture is divided into paragraphs, note that there are no
verse numbers. Each chapter was divided lettered sections, each about 4 to 8 verses long. These are called
"lecterns." Each chapter started with "Lectern A" and, depending on the length of the chapter,
would end somehwere around Lectern E or F.
You can see these letters in the margins. This page
contains Matthew 19:d through Matthew 21:a. It was not a handy way to refer to scripture.
