The University of Oxford (informally Oxford University or simply Oxford) in Oxford, England is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s second-oldest surviving university. While having no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096 making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Like Cambridge it is consistently ranked as one of the world’s best universities and can claim such great students as Laurence of Arabia (T.E Laurence). However, Oxford University and its publishing house is intimately involved with “The Scofield Reference Bible” having owned it from the beginning. This is confirmed by its copyright. Through an introduction by Jewish lawyer Samuel Untermyer Scofield received financial backing from numerous Jewish Zionist leaders including Samuel Gompers, Fiorello LaGuardia, Abraham Straus, Bernard Baruch and Jacob Schiff for his trips to Oxford and publication and distribution of his concordance. In publishing The Life Story of C.I. Scofield in 1920 the Oxford University Press is also responsible for supressing Scofield’s criminal past.
