New Multilingual Bible Begins Journey Around the World


¹As of December 31, 2006 (www.adventist.org/world_church/facts_and_figures/index.html.en)

What language is your Bible in? Perhaps you have an English or Spanish translation. Maybe you read your Bible in French or Swahili... You may even have a copy of the Bible written in more than one language. The Adventist Church truly is a world church. With over 15 million members in more than 200 countries, you will find over 800 languages being used to spread God's Word.¹

Only "about half of Seventh-day Adventists have a daily Bible study program." This is really something... If we're gonna be telling people that Jesus is coming back, we really need to be studying God's Word! Today the Adventist Church leaders and members from around the world met in Manila, Philippines for the Annual Council, the church's fall business session. During the Sabbath worship service at Araneta Coliseum, a new program was launched to help address this.

"Follow the Bible" is a new program meant to rekindle in Adventists around the world the daily need for connection with the Bible. A special Bible will begin its journey across the world, visiting 6 continents for the next 2 years. What's even more exciting is that this Bible copy is written in 66 languages, one for every book of the Bible. Starting with Genesis in Spanish and ending with Revelation in Korean, each book of the Bible will be in a different language.
