Fact of the Day: First English Bible

The first completed English bible is often credited to Protestant Reformer William Tyndale. Despite his contribution of the "Tyndale Bible", other Christians did not appreciate his views. He was executed for heresy by the Holy Roman Empire.

Not a lot has changed regarding religion and the interpretation of the Bible.

Nothing has really changed, has it? We do crazy things in the name of religion...

Interesting. I was watching a show on TV about King James I of England, and although he lived a very shady and questionable life, he was responsible for the King James version of the Bible.

I've heard of him (or at least his last name and its association with Bibles) but not that fact. Have a great Friday!
