about the Bach Bible

We've been making a few comments on Bach's St. Matthew passion during the passion part of our reading of the passion part of Mark, since apparently one of our members associates the passion story with this work ...

It's sometimes doubted as to whether Bach had any faith at all ... he wrote for both the Lutheran church, as well as the Catholic church (his famed Mass in b minor).

In 1934, a Lutheran minister found a bible in his cousin's barn ... here's a video about it and a wikipedia entry about this bible.
