John 16:14-15 – We Will See the Things of God “He shall glorifie me, for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it vnto you. All things that the Father hath, are mine: Therefore said I that he shall take of mine, and shal shew it vnto you.”
All that the father bestowed upon the Son, Jesus, so shall the son pass on to us. Jesus told his disciples that what all they saw Jesus do they also would do, even more. Following the resurrection of Jesus the Apostles took on the task of the commandment left by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20 – “Goe ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Sonne, and of the holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things, loe, I am with you always, euen vnto the end of the world. Amen.”
Our task is still the same as it was for the Apostles. Question: How is that going for you?
The person most connected to the development of the English Bible is the scholar Tyndale. He had divine revelation to bring the Word of God to English speaking common people. He was hated by the Roman Church and hunted like an animal with a price on his head. Escaping time and again with God's help he completed the work of translation before he was captured and put to death by burning at the stake. Within a short time after his death, Tyndale's work was approved by the very people who had him killed. The amazing grace of God hid this from those who were the enemies of the Word of God that became the greatest piece of literature of all time: The 1611 Holy Bible.
