QOTD: William Tyndale on the Gospel

Euagelio (that we cal gospel) is a greke worde, 
and signyfyth good, mery, glad and joyfull tydings, 
that maketh a mannes hert glad, 
and maketh him synge, duance and leepe for ioye.

– William Tyndale in his “Prologue to the New Testament”

~ Quoted in Michael Bird’s The Gospel of the Lord: How the Early Church Wrote the Story of Jesus (p. 1)
