This story is exciting. The oldest complete copy of the New Testament was found by an Indiana-Jones-type adventurer after a ten-day camel ride to a monastery that was guarded by the 1,100-year-old skeleton of a janitor. And that’s just the beginning of the story.
This story is beautiful. Ireland’s Book of Kells contains the four Gospels with decorations that are so complex and so intricate that they can be seen best only with a magnifying glass. But in 800 AD, there were no magnifying glasses. How did the monks do it? We don’t know.
This story is deadly. William Tyndale is not the only one to die for translating the Bible, but he may be the most famous. He was burned at the stake for the “crime” of publishing the New Testament in English.
This story has formed the way you talk. “My brother’s keeper,” “The salt of the earth,” “Give up the ghost,” and hundreds of other expressions come to us from the King James Bible.
