1529 Luther New Testament Leaf 1529 Luther New Testament:
The Oldest Printed German N.T. Scripture


A leaf from the earliest available printing of Luther's German Language New Testament. These leaves are ca. over 480 years old. They come with a beautiful Certificate of Authenticity. Martin Luther was the first person to ever print the Bible in the more commonly used dialect of the German people. William Tyndale sought help from Martin Luther, in the 1520's, in Tyndale's effort to translate and print the New Testament in English for the first time. A wonderful treasure of our Protestant heritage... and a particularly unforgettable and unique gift for a Lutheran friend or Pastor.
