Did You Answer Correctly?
It’s the early 16th century AD. Imagine you wake up every day of the week, say a daily prayer to the Lord, but instead of opening up your Bible you have to remember what the preacher said at church on the first day of the week. Maybe you can address your Sunday school notes (if you’re wealthy enough to have learned to read and write), but other than that, Bibles are in Greek, Hebrew, or some other language you don’t speak! Hopefully you paid attention on Sunday!
