The Reformation Simplified SERIES: Father of the English Bible

William Tyndale
The Most Influential Englishman
A brilliant linguist and graduate of both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, William Tyndale (1494-1536) is the Father of the English Bible. He produced the first translation from the original Hebrew and Greek Scriptures to be printed in English. As this was illegal at the time, he did his translation work in Germany and these Bibles had to be smuggled into England. As a result, Tyndale was outlawed and condemned to death. On 6 October 1538, he was burned at the stake. His dying prayer: "Lord, open the King of England's eyes", was remarkably answered. Within two years, by order of King Henry VIII, every parish church in England was required to make a copy of the English Bible available to all its parishioners.

And they that understand among the people shall instruct many:
                                   yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame,
by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Daniel 11:33
