The graphic image that appears on the lower left side of our
homepage is fascinating.
- It is the image of a text from a Tyndale Bible. The text
is the first chapter of John. The Bible, translated by William
Tyndale, was the first English translation produced of
the Bible when it (the new testament) appeared in 1525. Ten years
would pass before Miles Coverdale produced another English translation.
(Note: a larger, even readable, image of Tyndale's page from
John 1 is available
- This image is part of our homepage for a reason. The Tyndale
Bible revolutionized the spread of the word of God almost 500
years ago by being part of a larger effort to make God's word
available to everyman. In like manner, the Internet
School of Biblical Studies seeks to be a part of the process
to make the teachings of the word of God available and
understood in our present age.
- We are not followers of Tyndale, of course. Nor are we the
followers of any man, or men. But we hope that our efforts to
use the internet as a tool to train men and women to become better
servants of God will prove to be just as monumental as the introduction
of the Bible in the English language by Tyndale was.
- We encourage you to study the history of the translation
of God's word into English. We also encourage you to learn more
about the Internet School of Biblical Studies
by perusing our pages, even enrolling in our online courses.
And, we hope that you will tell others of our efforts by directing
them to the site for Internet School of Biblical
Studies as well as the main page of our host, TheBible.net
