William Tyndale

Just seen an inspiring television programme about the life of William Tyndale (sorry foreign readers might not know much about him) by our local Melvyn Bragg.  This was extremely well done and made the point that Tyndale translated the Bible into a language than even plough-boys could understand, so that they would learn that salvation comes through grace alone and not by ceremonies or works.

I give thanks that the martyrdom of Tyndale and others gave us our clear concise understandable Bible. He brought into use many phrases which are in common usage today, which means people are always quoting the Bible!!  That might surprise them!!
