Having found investment of $15m from Andreessen Horowitz, RapGenius are embarking on a new, controversial and mammoth project. The site will invite users to help contribute a unique glossary into the book of all books, The 1611 King James Bible.

Contributors will provide text, audio, video and anything else they can find online to annotate the most widely used version of Christianity’s holy scripture. As you would expect from the people who brought witty glossaries of popular hip-hop tracks, the project wont take itself too seriously but will offer a modern interpretation of the Bible's contents.

Below is a short time line published by RapGenius to get people started;
