English Bible History Before The KJV – Part 1

How The Book of Yahweh was taken from the people to the time when it was restored and given back is a long an arduous journey. House of Yahweh newsletter captures English Bible History for all to read.

Excerpt from their monthly publication…

The Book of Yahweh was the name by which the Inspired Scriptures were called.

Isayah 34:16
16 Search out The Book Of Yahweh, and read. Not one of these will be neglected. For it is written: Yahweh is their Shepherd; they shall not want; for His Mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.

The Book of Yahweh was taken to Rome by general Titus, but it was hated, just as Yahweh and Yahshua were hated.

For 1,500 years the popes would not allow The Book of Yahweh to be printed.

That was all to change because of the Prophecy of the Two Witnesses and the Last Prophesied Work of Yahweh in this generation.

Remember, Yahweh gave to His Two Witnesses.
Revelation 11:1-3
1 And there was given me a reed like a measuring rod. And the Malak stood, saying: Rise, and measure the temple of Yahweh, and the altar, and its confines;
2 But the court which is outside the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given to the Gentiles. And the holy city they will tread under foot three and one-half years.
3 And I will give to My Two Witnesses to perform their Prophetic offices, and they will foretell events about the one thousand two hundred and sixty days, those cast about with darkness.

The temple was destroyed around 70 CE. The Book of Yahweh was taken to Rome by the Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, and Herodians, who later called themselves catholics, meaning universal; showing they worshipped all Gods.

Notice the dates of when the Holy Scriptures were finally allowed to reach the public’s hands.

English Bible History

The first hand-written English language Bible manuscripts were produced in the 1380’s AD by John Wycliffe, an Oxford professor, scholar, and theologian. Wycliffe, (also spelled “Wycliff” & “Wyclif”), was well-known throughout Europe for his opposition to the teaching of the organized Church, which he believed to be contrary to the Bible.

With the help of his followers, called the Lollards, and his assistant Purvey, and many other faithful scribes, Wycliffe produced dozens of English language manuscript copies of the scriptures.

They were translated out of the Latin Vulgate, which was the only source text available to Wycliffe.

The Pope was so infuriated by his teachings and his translation of the Bible into English, that 44 years after Wycliffe had died, he ordered the bones to be dug-up, crushed, and scattered in the river!

One of Wycliffe’s followers, John Hus, actively promoted Wycliffe’s ideas: that people should be permitted to read the Bible in their own language, and they should oppose the tyranny of the Roman church that threatened anyone possessing a non-Latin Bible with execution.

Hus was burned at the stake in 1415, with Wycliffe’s manuscript Bibles used as kindling for the fire.

…in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 Theses of Contention (a list of 95 issues of heretical theology and crimes of the Roman Catholic Church) into the church door at Wittenberg.

Martin Luther went on to be the first person to translate and publish the Bible in the commonly-spoken dialect of the German people; a translation more appealing than previous German Biblical translations.
