The primary author of Tyndale's New Testament for the 21st Century is the English martyr William Tyndale. This is his final New Testament translation of 1535. Two years later, his friend John Rogers first published these scriptures in a little-known but very important Reformation Bible called the Matthew Bible, which became the first authorized English Bible under King Henry VIII. A second edition was published in 1549, from which this update is made. Rogers was martyred in 1555, burned at the stake in Smithfield, England.
This is the New Testament of William Tyndale – his final revision as it was published by John Rogers in the Matthew Bible and gently updated by Ruth Magnusson Davis.Because the KJV New Testament was largely taken from Tyndale, readers will find much that is familiar here, and beautiful, but will find it easier to understand than the KJV.
The Matthew Bible (from which the Tyndale New Testament is a part of), published in 1537, was the first authorized English Bible. It is a little known fact that it formed the basis of the King James Version. Therefore the reader will find much that is familiar in the beauty of these scriptures, but will be pleased with the greater flow and clarity.
