  USCCB - NAB - John - Introduction
John 21 seems to have been added after the gospel was completed; it exhibits a Greek style somewhat different from that of the rest of the work.
Among them are the opposition to the synagogue of the day and to John the Baptist's followers, who tried to exalt their master at Jesus' expense, the desire to show that Jesus was the Messiah, and the desire to convince Christians that their religious belief and practice must be rooted in Jesus.
These opponents are even described in John 8:44 as springing from their father the devil, whose conduct they imitate in opposing God by rejecting Jesus, whom God has sent.

 John Hus
One of Wycliffe’s followers, John Hus, actively promoted Wycliffe’s ideas: that people should be permitted to read the Bible in their own language, and they should oppose the tyranny of the Roman church that threatened anyone possessing a non-Latin Bible with execution.
Hus was burned at the stake in 1415, with Wycliffe’s manuscript Bibles used as kindling for the fire.
John Hus, the famous Reformer of Bohemia, was born at Hussinetz (Husinecz; 75 miles south west of Prague) on or around July 6, 1369.

 John Eliot
The first Bible printed in America was done in the native Algonquin Indian Language by John Eliot in 1663; nearly 120 years before the first English language Bible was printed in America by Robert Aitken in 1782.
John Eliot (1604—1690), American colonial clergyman, was born probably at Widford, Hertfordshire, England, where he was baptized on the 5th of August 1604.
Eliot’s Bible did much more than bring the Gospel to the pagan natives who were worshiping creation rather than the Creator… it gave them literacy, as they did not have a written language of their own until this Bible was printed for them.

You mentioned John 20:31, "but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in (His) name." The other reason for the writing of John was to downplay the importance of John the baptizer.
John was expounding upon this and demonstrating that Jesus was the "Word" Jews have always considered part of the Godhead by re-phrasing the Aramaic and Hebrew texts by saying...

 Why study the Bible
The Bible is one of the ways in which God bridges the gap between the human and the divine.
The Bible is the starting place for all right doctrine, and yet God gave us his written revelation in the form of stories, poems, hymns, battle scenes, scandalous exposes, a voice from a burning bush, brief flashes of insight called "proverbs" and seemingly irrelevant census rolls and genealogies.
Professional scholars prefer to speak of the Bible’s stories as "narrative," since the word "story" can convey something that is not true, as in a fairy tale or a myth, and the Bible is certainly not that.

 Wyclif's Bible - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wyclif's Bible is the name now given to a group of Bible translations into Middle English, that were made under the direction of, or at the instigation of, John Wycliffe.
These Bible translations were the chief inspiration and chief cause of the Lollard movement, a pre-Reformation movement that rejected many of the distinctive teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Wycliffite Bible, and its popularity, caused the kingdom of England and the established Roman Catholic Church to undertake a drastic campaign to suppress it.

 Middle English Versions of the Bible: John Wyclif
The Psalter was not the only part of the Bible of which versions came into existence in the course of the fourteenth century.
This part of the work is free and vigorous in style, though its interpretation of the original is often strange, and many sentences in it can have conveyed very little idea of their meaning to its readers.
A few examples of this, the first complete English Bible, and the first version in which the English approaches sufficiently near to its modern form to be generally intelligible, may be given here.

A suggestion is to allow one or two children at a time to work on the page while the other classmates are doing another classroom activity or during a recess time throughout the school day.
The school should have a ‘Bible Dedication.’ On a special day, the children can gather in a large gathering area to dedicate the Bible.
An added touch would be to have all children ‘dress-up’ for the occasion and to invite their family and friends to join the celebration.
