Bible Translation Through the Centuries

This quote from the CT article written by Jennifer Powell McNutt is so significant, “To Luther, ‘Ethiopia’ symbolized the church, and one of the most valued legacies that the Reformers identified within the Ethiopian church was its insistence on maintaining the Bible in the common language.”

I started thinking this morning about Luther and was reminded that even before the German Bible was translated by Luther and this worldview of the role of language in the Church that was so heavily influenced by the Ethiopian Church, John Wycliffe was translating in England.
