Author

John Trapp (1601–1669) was a star pupil and scholar who became headmaster of the Free School at Stratford upon Avon at the age of 24. One of his pupils, William Shakespeare’s son-in-law, described him as “second to none for his piety and learning.” He served the school into old age while also ministering at local churches and for the Parliamentarian army. He labored on these commentaries (originally in ten volumes) in any spare time he had until their publication completed in 1662. 

 

Endorsement

“Trapp is my especial companion and treasure; I can read him when I am too weary for anything else. Trapp is salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, and all the other condiments. Put him on the table when you study, and when you have your dish ready, use him by way of spicing the whole thing.” - Charles Spurgeon
