Tyndale's New Testament

A modern -spelling edition of the 1534 Translation. The translation of the New Testament into English from its original Greek was printed in Germany in 1534 and smuggled back into England. It therefore escaped the fate of Tyndale's previous version, which had been seized and publicly burnt by the authorities. The 1534 edition outraged the clerical establishment by giving ...more

This was pretty interesting. Obviously it has value in and of itself, but to read it in contrast to the KJV, my usual version, was fun. Some was the same, much was different (I mean, of course, translated differently: for example, in this version, Death rides a green horse). I particularly enjoyed reading Tyndale's commentaries and interpretations and his introductions to the various books. It was particularly fun to read him justifying Hebrews, which is one of my favorite books.

A wonderful look into the First translation into English of the Old Testament from the original languages. It is easy to see that it is true that the team of New Testament translators appointed by King James used 80% of Tyndall's words in the King James Translation. We owe our KJV to William Tyndall, who gave his life as a result.

For anyone who knows the King James Version of the Holy Bible - in truth, for anyone who knows the Holy Bible - William Tyndale's 1534 New Testament (now nearly 500 years old) is a fascination. On the first page of an introduction by David Daniell, there is a compelling reason for pursuing Tyndale: "…Astonishment is still voiced that the dignitaries who prepared the 1611 Authorized Version for King James spoke so often with one voice - apparently miraculously. Of course they did: the voice ...more

A fantastic facsimile reprint of Tyndale's famous 1534 edition of the New Testament, this is a wonderful edition to have sitting on my shelf. The notes in the margins are most fascinating, from the mind of Tyndale himself.

More interesting is that the Authorized King James Version of 1611 largely borrowed from Tyndale's translation, being that it was the first translation into English not based off of the Vulgate. In short, this guy in certainly a treat, and is worth picking up for any lover of S

Reading a facsimile of a Tyndale New Testament can be difficult due to the non-standardized spelling and punctuation. This edition makes reading an historically important publication easy. The background information on development of versification and "aids" was very interesting.
