#TheBibleStory Part 6
Tyndale and Luther
William Tyndale wanted to use the same 1516 Erasmus text as a source to translate and print the New Testament in English for the first time in history. Tyndale showed up on Luther’s doorstep in Germany in 1525, and by year’s end had translated the New Testament into English. In 1525-1526, the Tyndale New Testament became the first printed edition of the scripture in the English language.
Suppression of the Tyndale’s Bible
Tyndale Bible was highly resisted by King Henry VIII and the Bishop. Several times, thousands of this Holy Book were confiscated and burnt. The Church declared it contained thousands of errors while in fact; they burned them because they could find no errors at all. One risked death by burning if caught in mere possession of Tyndale’s forbidden books.
