Good News According To William Tyndale

tyndale William Tyndale wrote the first modern English Bible. Tyndale introduced words like “passover” and was the first to write the word “Jesus”, as the letter “J” was new to the English language. Jesus’ original Hebrew name is Yeshua.

After King Henry VIII and the church killed Tyndale for enabling everyday people to read the Bible themselves, they created the the King James version of the Bible which was a sanitized version of Tyndale’s Bible.

Tyndale’s Bible is credited with being the first English translation to come directly from Hebrew and Greek texts. Furthermore it was the first English biblical translation that was mass produced as a result of new advances in the art of printing. The term Tyndale’s Bible is not strictly correct, because Tyndale never published a complete Bible. Prior to his death Tyndale had only finished translating the entire New Testament and roughly half of the Old Testament.[1] Of the latter, the Pentateuch, Jonah and a revised version of the book of Genesis were published during his lifetime. His other Old Testament works were first used in the creation of the Matthew Bible and also heavily influenced every major English translation of the Bible that followed
