Good News According To William Tyndale

April 15, 2009

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

According to tradition the Coptic Orthodox Church is the Church of Alexandria which was established by Saint Mark the apostle and evangelist in the middle of the 1st century (approximately AD 42).

The Egyptian Church, which is now more than nineteen centuries old, regards itself as the subject of many prophecies in the Old Testament.

The first Christians in Egypt were mainly Alexandrian Jews such as Theophilus,[citation needed] whom Saint Luke the Evangelist addresses in the introductory chapter of his gospel.

Good news for Israel tourism from pastor James Ridgway who sent some 300,000 tourists to Israel!!

Feb. 5, 2009
NADIA BEIDAS , THE JERUSALEM POST

American pastor James Ridgway was honored late last month for bringing some 300,000 tourists to Israel since 1974 through his nonprofit organization, Educational Opportunities, which was also marking its 35th anniversary…

…The tours feature both Jewish and Arab guides. Ibrahim Matar directs the contemporary studies program for Educational Opportunities, a program in which pilgrims learn about both the Palestinian perspective and the Israeli perspective of the conflict. Matar arranges for all of the pilgrims to visit a Jewish settlement and a Palestinian refugee camp.

Matar said the tours “build a bridge for peace.”

Rula Shubeita, a tour guide for 12 years, said it is a priority for the pilgrims to pray and follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

“They relate to these holy sites. All of their lives they studied about Jesus, Jerusalem, Nazareth. It’s a great experience for them. It’s once in a lifetime,” Shubeita said.

Ridgway said he believes Arabs and Jews will live in peace one day.

“I hope I will live to see that day,” he said.
