Description

This page from the Matthews Bible is from a first edition published in 1537, possibly printed in Antwerp, Belgium, for a London publisher. Prepared by John Rogers, using one of Tyndale’s assumed names, Thomas Matthews, this version was the first English Bible completely translated using original Greek and Hebrew sources. The text of the Bible on these two pages is from John 11:22 to 13:5. In 1555, John Rogers was burned at the stake for his Protestant beliefs and Bible translation work.
