William Tyndale (1494-1536) is known as the Apostle of England. A linguistic genius—he was proficient in at least eight languages—he made it his life’s goal to translate the Bible from its original languages into English, a feat never before accomplished. Forbidden from this task by both king and Church, Tyndale fled England at age 30 to live the rest of his life as an outlaw.
He first hid in Germany where he sat under Luther’s preaching and studied the newly completed German Bible. When Tyndale started his translation, he needed a city with a printing press, a paper mill, only loose Catholic control, and along a river so he could export his work back to England. He settled on Worms, where Luther stood trial a decade earlier. When Tyndale was run out of Worms, he fled to Antwerp. There shippers smuggled his Bibles into England, where they were sold from the docks, all against the King’s direct orders.
Eventually, Tyndale’s operation was infiltrated by an English spy. He was betrayed, kidnapped, and spent five-hundred days in a Brussels dungeon where he nearly froze to death. He was then paraded through town, formally excommunicated, and hung to death by a chain as he was hoisted onto a wooden cross. His body was then covered in gun powder and the cross was lit on fire, causing his corpse to explode.
+ William Tyndale is most remembered for his greatest work of translating the Bible into English language so as to enable the common public to read the Holy Scriptures. While performing the translation, he also introduced new phrases and words into the English translations which proved to be quite popular. His work later formed the major part of important Bible translations, most notably the Authorized Version, or King James Bible.
His last words were “Lord, open the king of England’s eyes.”
"로마의 어둠을 성경의 빛으로 흩어지게 하기 위해서, 땅을 잃고 내 삶을 잃는다 해도 나는 가볍게 생각할 것이다."
