JULY 5

William Tyndale was the first person to translate the New Testament from Greek to English. Remember, Wycliffe’s English translation of the New Testament was from the Latin Vulgate. Although Tyndale began his translation in England, he had to flee to Germany to complete his translation, because of fierce opposition to his work in his native land. After a year of great stress in Germany, Tyndale was able to complete his translation in 1525.
