   It was on a Saturday, on the thirty-first day of the month of December, according to the then used Julian calendar, in the year of our Lord 1384, that John Wycliffe went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
   John Wycliffe is best known for his translation of the Bible directly from the Latin Vulgate into the vernacular English. 

The beginning of the Gospel of John in a copy of John Wycliffe's translation of the Bible.


   There have been many Christian men and women who have paid a heavy price to get the Bible translated into the tongues of the common peoples of many nations.  Those of us who claim to have a love for the Holy Bible dishonor their sacrifices and memories when we neglect the Bilbe either in our lack of reading, or our disobedience to its commandments to our daily lives.
