1611 – the genealogy

I expect this will be a year for a great many “Bible blogs” both from myself and fellow Christian bloggers (as well as a few atheists I expect), being as it is the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

I thought this would be a good way to kick it off: the witty “ship of fools” site “tweeted” the following just now:

“Wycliffe begat Tyndale; and Tyndale begat Coverdale; and Coverdale begat Matthew; and Matthew begat Great; and Great begat Geneva, and Geneva begat Bishops; and Bishops begat King James. And in this wise came about the birth of the KJV in 1611, 400 years this year.”

Fun 🙂
