The Man Who Wrote the Bible: John Wycliffe

The Man Who Wrote the Bible: John Wycliffe

John Wycliffe was an English scholar and theologian who translated the Bible into Middle English in the 14th century. He is credited with translating and publishing the first complete Bible translation into English.

John Wycliffe is commonly known as the “Man Who Wrote The Bible.” Wycliffe had the vision to translate scripture into a common language so that everyone could access it without having to hire a priest to read it aloud.

John Wycliffe was born in 1324 in Gloucester, England. His father, John Wyclif, was a wool merchant and his mother, Margaret, came from a family of clergymen. As he grew up he studied at Oxford University and became one of its most distinguished scholars.

He also studied law at Cambridge University for eight years before becoming a teacher in his hometown of London. Wycliffe was one of the first people to translate the Bible into English (so that clergy could understand it, rather than relying on Latin). He also translated other religious texts, including many books by Thomas Aquinas.
