His mother finds a way around the law that all Israelite baby boys should be killed. Using a series of miracles, God tells Moses that the time has come for Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. God brought 10 calamities on Egypt, all because the Egyptian ruler Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let the Israelites go.
Ten of the spies say one thing, but two of them say another. Who do the Israelites believe? They trick Joshua and the Israelites into making a promise, but the Israelites keep their promise. At first chosen by God and later rejected by him, Saul can teach us a valuable lesson. David fought Goliath, not merely with his sling, but with a far more powerful weapon.

Coverdale finished translating the Old Testament, and in he printed the first complete Bible in the English language , making use of Luther's German text and the Latin as sources. Thus, the first complete English Bible was printed on October 4, , and is known as the Coverdale Bible. John Rogers went on to print the second complete English Bible in He printed it under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew" , an assumed name that had actually been used by Tyndale at one time as a considerable part of this Bible was the translation of Tyndale, whose writings had been condemned by the English authorities.
It is a composite made up of Tyndale's Pentateuch and New Testament edition and Coverdale's Bible and some of Roger's own translation of the text.
It remains known most commonly as the Matthew-Tyndale Bible. It went through a nearly identical second-edition printing in It became the first English Bible authorized for public use, as it was distributed to every church, chained to the pulpit, and a reader was even provided so that the illiterate could hear the Word of God in plain English. It would seem that William Tyndale's last wish had been granted Cranmer's Bible, published by Coverdale, was known as the Great Bible due to its great size: a large pulpit folio measuring over 14 inches tall.

Mary went on to burn reformers at the stake by the hundreds for the "crime" of being a Protestant. This era was known as the Marian Exile, and the refugees fled from England with little hope of ever seeing their home or friends again. In the 's, the Church at Geneva, Switzerland, was very sympathetic to the reformer refugees and was one of only a few safe havens for a desperate people. Many of them met in Geneva, led by Myles Coverdale and John Foxe publisher of the famous Foxe's Book of Martyrs , which is to this day the only exhaustive reference work on the persecution and martyrdom of Early Christians and Protestants from the first century up to the midth century , as well as Thomas Sampson and William Whittingham.

Due to a passage in Genesis describing the clothing that God fashioned for Adam and Eve upon expulsion from the Garden of Eden as "Breeches" an antiquated form of "Britches" , some people referred to the Geneva Bible as the Breeches Bible. The Geneva Bible was the first Bible to add numbered verses to the chapters, so that referencing specific passages would be easier. Every chapter was also accompanied by extensive marginal notes and references so thorough and complete that the Geneva Bible is also considered the first English "Study Bible".

The Geneva in fact, remained more popular than the King James Version until decades after its original release in ! With the end of Queen Mary's bloody reign, the reformers could safely return to England.
The marginal notes, which were vehemently against the institutional Church of the day, did not rest well with the rulers of the day.
Another version, one with a less inflammatory tone was desired, and the copies of the Great Bible were getting to be decades old. In , a revision of the Great Bible known as the Bishop's Bible was introduced. The Geneva may have simply been too much to compete with. By the 's , the Roman Catholic Church saw that it had lost the battle to suppress the will of God: that His Holy Word be available in the English language.
In , the Church of Rome surrendered their fight for "Latin only" and decided that if the Bible was to be available in English, they would at least have an official Roman Catholic English translation. And so, using the corrupt and inaccurate Latin Vulgate as the only source text, they went on to publish an English Bible with all the distortions and corruptions that Erasmus had revealed and warned of 75 years earlier.
In , Dr. William Fulke of Cambridge published the "Fulke's Refutation", in which he printed in parallel columns the Bishops Version along side the Rheims Version, attempting to show the error and distortion of the Roman Church's corrupt compromise of an English version of the Bible. The Protestant clergy approached the new King in and announced their desire for a new translation to replace the Bishop's Bible first printed in They knew that the Geneva Version had won the hearts of the people because of its excellent scholarship, accuracy, and exhaustive commentary.
However, they did not want the controversial marginal notes proclaiming the Pope an Anti-Christ, etc.
