John Rogers – burned to death at the stake at Smithfield, England on this Monday morning, February 4, 1555.  Among the onlookers who encouraged him were his own children.  What monstrous crime had earned him this cruel death?  Formerly a catholic priest, Rogers converted after becoming friends with William Tyndale and assisted him translate the Old Testament into English.  Upon Tyndale’s execution, Rogers finished the translation.
