Tell others about Jesus like William Tyndale did:
Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of Bible Translator, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

One Man Who Changed the World
William Tyndale was personally responsible for the translation of two-thirds of what is now known as the King James Bible. For this "crime" he would be hunted throughout Europe, executed by strangulation, and then burned at the stake.
He would share God's Word, whatever the risk.
Five hundred years ago, no one had a copy of the Bible in the English language. Church services in England were conducted in Latin, and English peasants, or "ploughmen" as they were often called, had no knowledge of salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ.
But one man dreamed of spreading the gospel by putting the Bible into words the English ploughman could understand. As one of Europe's leading scholars in Greek, Hebrew, and Latin, William Tyndale was uniquely gifted to translate the Bible into English. When Church officials objected to his work, Tyndale determined to continue his translation efforts, no matter what the risk.
Tyndale's passion for sharing the Word of God in the language of ordinary people continues to change the world today.
In spite of persecution, hunger, and hardship, Tyndale persevered with his mission, translating large parts of the Bible until he was betrayed, arrested, convicted as a heretic, and burned at the stake. Because of his sacrifice, though, the English ploughman got his Bible. And Tyndale's passion for sharing the Word of God in the language of
ordinary people continues to change the world today.
