56. The Bible Student Movement and it's fractions

The Bible Student Movement and it's fractions 

From the internet:
First schism was with Nelson H. Barbour

There are many more groups that I can mention, some are very active ecclesias who publishing books and journals, others who rallied around a prominent elder, still others who formed committees and published some obscure book or journal and folded after the death of itrs founders.

Interestingly, there seems to be more offshoots of the JW's now then there are Bible Students. There is thee xJW community who have no faith, and theere is the xJW community that still have faith and have formed groups of their own.
