JULY 3

In 1516, the first Greek New Testament was printed. It was the work of a man named Erasmus. Thanks to Erasmus, scholars, for the first time in history, had access to the New Testament in its original language. One of these scholars was an Englishman named William Tyndale, whose chief ambition in life was to provide the people of England with an English translation of the New Testament based on the original Greek.
