Also, the first to take advantage of the new medium of print, which allowed for its wide distribution. In 1535 Tyndale was arrested, jailed in a castle outside of Brussels for over a year, tried for heresy and burnt at the stake.

Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. {Love never ends (fails). But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end.}” -The New Oxford Annotated Bible, 3 rd ed.
