The Forbidden Book: The history of the English Bible.Did you know that during the period of A.D. 100 and A.D. 400 the Bible had been translated into nearly 500 languages? Did you know that from A.D. 400 to A.D. 500 it had been reduced to just one language? A language only know to the clergy and the educated. As a result of the Bible becoming the "Forbidden Book" the dark ages were marked by superstition and ignorance. Confusion controlled the minds of the masses. However, by God's sovereing hand, He called a few brave men to preserve and restore the Bible to the people. John Wycliffe, the brilliant 14th century Oxford scholar, translated the Bible from Latin into English in order to enlighten the masses oppressed through ignorance. His work was so despised by the established church, that Pope Martin V ordered Wycliffe's bones to be dug up and burned. Martin Luther was one of the few who challenged church authority in the 16th century and lived to tell the tale. In exposing the folly of indulgences (paying money to the church in order to obtain favor with God), he revealed what had always been written in scripture, that justification was through faith. William Tyndale was not spared like his friend Luther. Tyndale spent the last 500 days of his life in a cold castle dungeon. He was then tied to a stake, strangled and burned. His crime?...printing Bibles in the English language! Discover the fascinating story behind the preservation of the Bible.
