The Bible didn’t fall from heaven in any language, let alone old English. It was communicated from God through people in the common language of the day – Hebrew for the Old Testament, Greek for the New. People have given their lives to the work of Bible translation, whether into understandable English or any other language.
The Bible says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119.105, NIV). We begin the message by reading that verse and a few before it, and then we learn about what the Reformation has done for the church in terms of making the Bible available in common language.
