Scofield's Reference Notes (1917)

Available Platforms


Originally published in 1909 and revised in 1917, the Scofield Reference Bible has sold millions of copies and promoted dispensationalism to a wider audience. The book received attention at its publication by including the annotations within the King James Bible text (not included in this electronic version). Also included are clear and simple introductions for every book of the Bible.

"The Bible, incomparably the most widely circulated of books, at once provokes and baffles study. Even the non-believer in its authority rightly feels that it is unintelligent to remain in almost total ignorance of the most famous and ancient of books. And yet most, even of sincere believers, soon retire from any serious effort to master the content of the sacred writings. The reason is not far to seek. It is found in the fact that no particular portion of Scripture is to be intelligently comprehended apart from some conception of its place in the whole. For the Bible story and message is like a picture wrought out in mosaics: each book, chapter, verse, and even word forms a necessary part, and has its own appointed place. It is, therefore, indispensable to any interesting and fruitful study of the Bible that a general knowledge of it be gained." from the Introduction to the Scofield Study Bible

About the Author(s)

Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921) was born in Michigan but moved to Tennessee at a young age. He served in the Confederate Army and took up law after the war. He entered politics and served as the U.S. Attorney for Kansas, appointed there by Pres. Grant. He became a Christian in 1879 and was ordained a Congregational Minister in 1882 and pastored a church in Dallas, Texas. His first book, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth, was published in 1888. In 1890, he started the Scofield Correspondence Course, which was turned over to Moody Bible Institute in 1914. He accepted a call to pastor the Trinitarian Congregational Church in Northfield, Massachusetts (Dwight L. Moody's home church) in 1896 and stayed there until 1903 when he returned to Dallas hoping to have more time to work on his Reference Bible which was finally published in 1909 and revised by Scofield in 1917.
