Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book Translating Resurrection: The Debate between William Tyndale and George Joye in Its Historical and Theological Context. The book proves that the evaluation of the debate in traditional works is (if present at all) utterly mistaken. It has pointed out how authors of the conservative consensus neglected or misinterpreted the available historical evidence. The book has demonstrated that their (implicit or explicit) judgement on Joye's character, scholarship, knowledge, intelligence, style, translational strategy, and legacy does not hold water. Finally, it shows that how Joye's Apologye cannot be properly studied without its appropriate historical theological context. William Tyndale and George Joye debate showed the importance of turning to the Bible in matters of faith. Joye's Apologye reflects much of the achievement of his contemporaries and applied historical-grammatical exegesis. In that sense, Tyndale's methodology was surprisingly modern.

Keywords: George Joye; historical-grammatical exegesis; Joye's Apologye; Tyndale's methodology; William Tyndale
