Speaker: Pastor Marty Martin
II Corinthians 4:16 – 5:10
How much would you be willing to pay for a copy of the Bible? What price for just a New Testament? If you were a contemporary of Martin Luther, a working man on the lower end of the pay scale would have to give a week of his income to buy a copy of Luther’s New Testament in Germany, 1522. A whole Bible would require a month’s wages. Unless you were prepared to make considerable financial sacrifices, purchasing a book of any kind was out of the reach of all but the royals and others at the top of the financial pyramid.
