I meant to post this yesterday, which was Reformation Day. Five Hundred (and one) years ago, the Reformation rally cry rang out, sola scriptura (Scripture alone). For so long, the “ordained” had kept the Bible out of the hands of the “ordinary”.
It was a very good thing that people like Martin Luther came along with a passion to make the Bible available to ordinary people in their ordinary language (which is the way that God always does!). People like William Tyndale died … yes … DIED … for trying to get the Bible translated into ordinary, everyday language of everyday people.
If you want a deeper appreciation for the Bible and how it was preserved and translated (especially the ESV), take ten minutes to watch this video.
