Translator and Bible Scholar. Wilson was a Baptist who became a part of the Restoration Movement in the 1840s. He translated the Emphatic Diaglott translation of the Bible between 1856 and 1864. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (Jehovah's Witnesses) acquired the printing plates for this edition in 1902, and published an edition in 1926. Wilson was not associated with the Witnesses. Later, he was co-founder of the Church of God of the Abrahamic Faith. Wilson published a monthly religious magazine, the Gospel Banner, which ran from 1855 to 1869, when it was merged with his nephew Thomas Wilson's magazine, Herald of the Coming Kingdom. He also had connections with John Thomas, the founder of the Christian group later to be called the Christadelphians.
