The Krebiehl Bible is German. A note from Rob Gratz indicates that the bible might have been printed in Holland circa 1600. It also identifies the bible as coming from the Rossville Church of the Brethren, Indiana. More research is needed regarding the material written on the pages at the end of the book. Family history is traced from 1762, along with what appears to be apocalyptic beliefs in the creation of the numbers 666. The bible is beautifully illustrated:
An inscription at the beginning of the book has been translated:
My father, Peter Krebiehl, received this Bible from his father, Samuel Krebiehl. Upon my request he gave it to me, Jacob Krebiehl, his oldest son, as a gift. For this I owe him eternal gratitude. This Bible is therefore very dear and valuable to me. May God reward him with many blessings.
