The popular modern Calvinist historians and theologians didn't educate you on this? (Typical.) Now you know, and now you know that it is sorely lacking here on Logos. From the Wikipedia entry "John Downame": Downame was commissioned by parliament along with John Ley, William Gouge, Meric Casaubon, Francis Taylor, Daniel Featley, and John Reading, to imitate and supplement the 1637 Dutch Annotations on the Whole Bible as a complement to the work of the Westminster Assembly. With the exceptions of Downame, Casaubon, and Reading, these divines were all members of the Assembly. It is presumed that Downame served as the chief editor and compiler for their work: Annotations upon all the Books of the Old and New Testament, London, 1645. The text came to be known as The Assembly's Annotations or The English Annotations (in distinction from the earlier Dutch).
