Information Explosion – Gutenberg and the Printed Bible
CLICK ON THE PICTURE BELOW TO WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THIS Video
Before the printing press, every bible had to be hand-written. Those “manuscripts” were extremely valuable and only the wealthiest of men could afford to own bible…
The spread of Gutenberg’s technology enabled the renaissance and reformation in Europe and the spread of Scripture to the whole world.
From the information explosion caused by Gutenberg’s press to Tyndale’s defiance of the Church’s wish to keep the Bible in Latin, nothing could stop the Word of God from reaching the hands of even the “…boy who drives the plow.”

Excellent! I really liked how Rusty Maisel said that information is power, and those few who were in control wanted to keep that power from the people to keep them in bondage. As the scripture says, the truth shall make you free. How true that is, and in reading the Bible for themselves, those in the past realized they had been lied too. Information is just as powerful today as it was then, and there are still some who want to keep information from the people so that they can keep us in bondage. Today, we have the scriptures. Thankfully, we can go to them to see if what we’re being told is true.
