How improved was the 1611 though over the Geneva Bible?A new improved English bible was the only real concession the Puritans got from the King at the famous meeting at Hampton Court in 1604. By the time of the Westminster assembly it had supplanted the GB (there was I think just one GB edition just prior to or at the beginning of the assembly and I think all the editions they oversaw some way as censures for quality were KJV editions).
How improved was the 1611 though over the Geneva Bible?
The Geneva was one of the first study bibles, as there were a large amount of notes to help the reader understand the bible better. I believe that the King did not like the Calvinistic notes that seemed to indicate that we should not be under any Earthly King, but just under king Jesus Himself.After it was published in 1611, it took about half a century for the KJV to catch on. Many people preferred the Geneva Bible because of its extensive notes. King James made sure that the KJV was note-free.
