Notes on the Bible
by Albert Barnes
Albert Barnes (b. 1798, d. 24 Dec. 1870) was an American theologian who graduated Hamilton College, Clinton, New York in 1820, and Princeton Theological Seminary in 1823. He was ordained in 1825 as a Presbyterian minister. Born in Rome, New York, Barnes was pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, New Jersey from 1825-30, and the First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia from 1830-67.
On one hand Barnes became known for his role in the Old School-New School controversy, during which he was accused, but not convicted of heresy. On the other, he was known for his very popular Bible commentaries, which are presented here on the web. This massive text is nearly five times the size of KJV, with which it is linked.
