William Tyndale was regarded at his time as a brilliant scholar. Fluent in many languages and an astute theologian of his time. Against all odds, the laws of England, and the powerful Roman Catholic Church, he translated the Bible into English. His translation from the Greek and Hebrew texts (instead of the Latin Vulgate) was so good that the 50 scholars assigned to translate the King James Bible 80 years later could scarcely improve upon his work. He was finally captured, tried and executed for his work. This mans legacy of what he did is astounding in its lasting impact on the world.

Those of you familiar with his story please comment.

Thank you
