Hank’s Prologue:

  • Hank shares his thoughts on the legacy of the English Bible, which had its genesis in the writings of Oxford theologian John Wycliffe. His translation from the 1380’s remained the only English Bible until the invention of moveable type in the 16th century. He held that the Bible was the sole authority for faith and practice. So his writings were condemned as heresy. Perhaps no single person made a greater contribution to the legacy of the English Bible than William Tyndale. Like Wycliffe, Tyndale purposed to make the Bible available to the commoner and was martyred for translating the Bible into the English language. As his body was ablaze he cried out, “Oh Lord, open the eyes of England’s king!” His prayer found an answer, ironically, in King Henry VIII, who authorized an English translation to be chained to every church pulpit in the land. At the Christian Research Institute, one of our core values is to not only get people into the Bible, but that they would become conversant with art and science of biblical interpretation.
