Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician. He is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution.
Newton’s book “Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy”, first published in 1687, laid the foundations for classical mechanics. Newton made seminal contributions to optics, and he shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of calculus.
Sir Isaac Newton also was a devout believer in Jesus Christ and a Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, who translated directly from Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at the age of 12 and continued until he died at the age of 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, “At the end of his days Newton spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens.”
