Joseph Sutcliffe, M.A., an English Wesleyan minister, was born at Baildon, Yorkshire. He was converted in early life and was appointed by Wesley to Redruth in 1786.

Sutcliffe introduced Methodism into the Scilly Isles in 1788, and spent the last twenty years of his life in retirement in London, where he died May 14, 1856. His course was one of "unspotted Christian purity and progressive excellence. In Biblical scholarship he especially excelled." He was an indefatigable writer, publishing in all thirty-two works on religious subjects, the chief being - A Commentary on the Old and New Testament.

Sutcliffe's own words on his Commentary:
 "The Author begs to close this address by stating, that the present work is the result of his study and labour for about forty years. Favoured with health, and a biblical library, he has spent his mornings in reading the original scriptures, with versions and comments.

To English commentators his references are few, lest he should be a plagiarist from others, which real industry has no need to be. He conceives it to be the duty of a commentator, treading a beaten path, to give ancient truths the drapery of living language, like the renovated verdure of the year.

Another devout aim of the author has been to assist the candidate for the sanctuary to the utmost of his power; for the conscious mind, called to save souls, and defend the truth, is worthy of all the aid that science can afford."
- BRIGHTON, January 1st, 1834.

From Commenting & Commentaries -- A Catalogue of Biblical Commentaries and Expositions by C. H. Spurgeon:
 "To comprise the whole Bible in one volume necessitated notes few and brief. Sutcliffe, though an Arminian, is in general so good that we wish we had more of him ; his style is vivacious and forcible."
