John Knox

Throughjohn-knox-190x209.pngout 2017, this year that marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we are tracing the history that led to the founding of our church through the lives of key people in that story. We began before the Reformation with
John Wycliffe and John Hus, and then looked at the lives of Martin Luther and John Calvin.

But for us to trace the story from the continent of Europe to the New World, we have to see w
hat happened in England and Scotland. And there’s no better single person to look at than the great Scottish Reformer, John Knox, whose life intersected with the great rulers of his day—the English Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, Elizabeth I; and the Scottish Mary of Guise, Mary Queen of Scots, and James VI. Through these connections—and his often controversial stances—Knox helped lay the groundwork for many theological and philosophical truths we take for granted today.
