SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — The William Tyndale Biography
924 AD-939 AD:King Athelstan was an admired honest religious hero of William Tyndale who wanted to have an English Bible for his people. King Athelstan (894–939) was King of the Anglo-Saxons from 924 to 927 & King of the English from 925 AD to his death. Modern historians regard him as the first King of England and one of the greatest Anglo-Saxon kings. He was the son of Anglo-Saxon King Edward the Elder. He never married and had no children. He was succeeded by his half-brother, Edmund. 927 AD: King Athelstan conquered the last remaining Viking kingdom, York, making him the first Anglo-Saxon ruler of the whole of England. Athelstan centralized government and increased control over the production of charters and summoned leading figures from distant areas to his councils. These meetings were also attended by rulers from outside his territory, especially Welsh kings, who thus acknowledged his overlordship. More legal texts survive from his reign than from any other 10th-century English king. They show his concern about widespread robberies, and the threat they posed to social order. His legal reforms built on those of his grandfather, Alfred the Great. Athelstan was one of the most pious West Saxon kings, and was known for collecting relics and founding churches. His household was the centre of English learning during his reign, and it laid the foundation for the Benedictine monastic reform later in the century. No other West Saxon king played as important a role in European politics as Athelstan, and he arranged the marriages of several of his sisters to continental rulers.
1506 AD-1523 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — William Tyndale (1494 AD-1539 AD, killed at age 42) studied at Oxford, later moving on to Cambridge for a Master’s degree (1517 AD-1523 AD). William Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a priest whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church, but Tyndale discovered Professor Erasmus’s Greek edition of the New Testament (Erasmus had been the leading teacher of Greek at Cambridge (1511 AD-1512 AD) and Tyndale wanted to translate that into English for his fellow British countrymen. Tyndale said of Erasmus that, “Christ desires his mysteries to be published abroad as widely as possible. I would that [the Gospels and the epistles of Paul] were translated into all languages, of all Christian people, and that they might be read and known.”
1517 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale, an extremely moral and honest man, said the official courses did not allow the systematic study of Scripture & he said, “They have ordained that no man shall look on the Scripture, until he be noselled (nursed) in heathen learning eight or nine years and armed with false principles, with which he is clean shut out of the understanding of the Scripture.” SO PRIESTS WERE BRAINWASHED IN BRITISH PAGANISM FIRST!

1521 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale was called before the clergyman and told, “We had better be without God’s laws than the Pope’s,” So the Pope was over GOD! Tyndale responded: “I defy the Pope, and all his laws; and if God spares my life, ere many years, I will cause the boy that driveth the plow to know more of the Scriptures than thou dost!”
1523 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — William Tyndale’s passion was to translate the Greek New Testament into English for his fellow countrymen and sought permission and funds from the bishop of London but was denied and told to never try that again in England. So he traveled to the free cities at the time in Europe—Hamburg, Wittenberg, Cologne, and finally to the Lutheran city of Worms. If Tyndale had not had this strong compulsion to share the good news in the New Testament with English men and women he would have had a long and prosperous life in the church, but he refused to have the good news silenced.
1525 AD-1526 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — William Tyndale’s New Testament translation emerged, the first translation from Greek into the English language. 1526 AD: A full edition of the New Testament was produced by printer Peter Schoeffer in Worms. It was quickly smuggled into England and King Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, Bishop Tunstall, and Sir Thomas More, among others, were furious and said Tyndale’s master was the “Antichrist.” Tyndale denounced the practice of prayer to saints. He taught justification by faith, the return of Christ, and mortality of the soul. British Authorities bought up copies of the translation which, ironically, only financed Tyndale’s further work, and also hatched plans to silence Tyndale.
1526 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale moved to Antwerp, a free city from both English agents and those of the Holy Roman (and Catholic) Empire. For nine years he managed with the help of friends to evade authorities, revise his New Testament, and begin translating the Old Testament. NOTE: His translations became a decisive part of the King James English Bible, one hundred years later, and eight out of ten times researchers at Oxford agreed that Tyndale had the best translation. The book was smuggled into England and Scotland. The precise British criminals that planned and financed the plot that murdered Tyndale are not known, but we do know it was carried out by Henry Phillips, a man who had been accused of robbing his father and of gambling himself into poverty. Phillips (likely approved by King Henry VIII) became Tyndale’s guest at meals and soon was one of the few privileged to look at Tyndale’s books and papers.
1529 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale intended to carry on his work on the Old Testament from Hamburg and revised his New Testament.
1530 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale wrote The Practyse of Prelates, opposing Henry VIII’s annulment of his own marriage to Catherine of Aragon in favour of Anne Boleyn, on the grounds that it contravened Scripture. Tyndale said it was a plot by Cardinal Wolsey to get Henry entangled in the papal courts of Pope Clement VII. The king’s wrath was aimed at Tyndale. Henry asked Emperor Charles V to have the writer apprehended and returned to England under the terms of the Treaty of Cambrai; however, the Emperor responded that formal evidence was required before extradition. Tyndale developed his case in An Answer unto Sir Thomas More’s Dialogue.
1530s AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — The Roman Catholic Church did not approve of some of the words and phrases introduced by Tyndale = “overseer” referring to the “bishop”, “elder” or “priest” & he used “congregation” rather than “church” which the Church saw as a threat to their claim over the body of Christ on earth and fear of the erosion of their social power including if Christians could read the Bible in their own language.
1534 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale’s “The Obedience of a Christian Man” fell into the hands of Henry VIII, providing the king with the rationale to break the Church in England from the Roman Catholic Church. Tyndale wrote, “The Pope’s dogma is bloody,” so he made enemies of the Roman Catholic Church.
1535 AD-1536 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — British agent, Phillips lured Tyndale away from the safety of his quarters and into the arms of soldiers. Tyndale was immediately taken to the Castle of Vilvorde, the great state prison and accused of heresy under the commissioners of the Holy Roman Empire. Finally, in early August 1536, Tyndale was condemned as a heretic, degraded from the priesthood, and delivered to the secular authorities for punishment. In October, Tyndale was brought to the cross in the middle of the town square but refused to recant and instead Tyndale cried out, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes!” He was bound to a beam with both an iron chain and a rope put around his neck. Gunpowder was added to the brush and logs. At the signal of a local official, the executioner, standing behind Tyndale, quickly tightened the noose, strangling him. Then an official took up a lighted torch and handed it to the executioner, who set the wood ablaze.
1540 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — Tyndale’s Revised Version of the Bible inspired the Geneva Bible of 1560, the Bishops’ Bible of 1568, the Douay-Rheims Bible of 1582–1609, and the King James Version of 1611. Henry VIII allowed Four more English translations of the Bible to be published in England, including Henry’s official Great Bible, and all were based on Tyndale’s work.
1611 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — 54 scholars who produced the King James Bible drew significantly from Tyndale, as well as from translations that descended from his. One estimate suggests that the New Testament in the King James Version is 83% Tyndale’s and the Old Testament 76%.
1913 AD: SECRET SOCIETIES OF ROMAN CHURCH & BRITISH GOVERNMENT — A memorial to Tyndale by Friends of the Trinitarian Bible Society of London and the Belgian Bible Society stands in Vilvoorde, where he was executed.
