John Knox foi um religioso reformador escocês que liderou uma reforma religiosa na Escócia segundo a linha calvinista. Ele foi educado na Universidade de St Andrews ou possivelmente a Universidade de Glasgow e foi ordenado para o sacerdócio católico em 1536. Influenciado pelos reformadores da igreja primitiva, como George Wishart, ele se juntou ao movimento para reformar a igreja escocesa. Ele foi pego nos eventos eclesiásticos e políticos que envolveram o assassinato do cardeal Beaton em 1546 e a intervenção da regente da Escócia Maria de Guise. Ele foi preso por forças francesas no ano seguinte e exilado para a Inglaterra em sua libertação em 1549.

Seu lugar e data de nascimento continuam a ser debatidos, sendo Gifford Gate, nas proximidades da cidade de Haddington o mais provável local.

„I am a watchman...For that reason I am bound in conscience to blow the trumpet publicly.“

—  John Knox
Context: As touching nature I am a worm of this earth, and yet a subject of this commonwealth; but as touching the office wherein it has pleased God to place me [head of the Reformed church in Scotland], I am a watchman... For that reason I am bound in conscience to blow the trumpet publicly. As quoted in World Studies for Christian Schools (2000) by Terri Koontz, Mark Sidwell & S. M. Bunker,

„I have a testimony this day in my conscience, before God, however the world rage.“

—  John Knox
Context: None have I corrupted. None have I defrauded. Merchandise have I not made — to God's glory I write — of the glorious Evangel of Jesus Christ; but, according to the measure of the grace granted unto me, I have divided the Sermon of Truth in just parts, beating down the rebellion of the proud against God, and raising up the consciences troubled with the knowledge of their sins, by declaring Jesus Christ, the strength of His Death, and the mighty operation of His Resurrection, in the hearts of the Faithful. Of this, I say, I have a testimony this day in my conscience, before God, however the world rage.

„The Mass is Idolatry. All worshipping, honouring, or service invented by the brain of man in the religion of God, without his own express commandment, is idolatry. The Mass is invented by the brain of man, without any commandment of God; therefore it is idolatry.“
