A few months ago, a small group of evangelical Christians from Ohio started a Bible translation project, which has now reached hundreds of churches in the U.S.
A team of evangelical Christian missionaries has been working with local pastors and the local chapter of the World Vision Corporation (WVEC) to translate the Bible into several languages.
The team of volunteers in Ohio is a small one but has already translated more than 1,300 verses into five different languages, which they have then uploaded to a website.
According to their website, the translation project “is one of the most effective and ambitious Bible translations ever attempted by evangelical Christians.”
The project is funded by the WVEC and by a grant from the American Council on Religion.
They have been working to translate more than 100 verses in the Bible, but they have been overwhelmed by the demand for the translations.
The project was created to “provide Christians and their families with a clear-cut, easy-to-read biblical translation” and it “is a significant achievement for our team,” says Matthew Johnson, one of their translators.
“There are hundreds of translations in the bible and not one of them is this clear-eyed and unbiased.”
The team says they have translated over 1,200 verses in a wide range of languages, and that they hope to continue translating over 100 more verses throughout the year.
This is all happening despite the fact that the Bible is considered “biblical” in most countries, which means that it can be translated into many different languages.
While many churches are struggling with translation difficulties, this project is being funded and is being run by the local WVCC, which is run by a Christian organization that is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
“There is a real disconnect in the American church,” Johnson said.
“We have a lot of very conservative churches that have not translated in a long time, and we have a small church that is trying to do this.
We want to give the people of America a clear view of the Bible.”
Johnson, a graduate of Georgetown University Divinity School, said that there are some Christians in America that “are very religious, and they know that the bible is the word of God, and the word is divine.
But when they read it in their daily life, they have problems understanding how to translate it into a way that will be good for them.”
The work of the translation team is being supported by the Evangelicals United Fund for Evangelical Missions, which was created by the World Evangelical Alliance.
The Evangelicals have also been working on a project to translate thousands of verses from the Bible in the language of their choice, and Johnson said that the WVCEC is working with them on this project as well.
“The Bible translation team has created a Bible that is in its best translation, yet there are many Christians who have difficulty with their translation, so we are working with WVFC to help them,” said Richard Smith, President of the WVEEC.
“This work is being done for the good of the people, not the benefit of the church.”
Johnson said that they were initially not aware that WVBC had a contract with WVE to translate their Bible.
He added that they had to “go to WVDC to find out” about the contract.
“We did not know they had a deal,” he said.
According to Johnson, the WVDC contract has been very beneficial to them.
“In many ways, it was a blessing because we were able to translate a bible that we had been working for years on,” he added.
“There is no better time than right now to bring a Bible to the people,” Johnson added.
“I am so proud of the project, and I know that our faith is stronger because we have these resources available.”
The translation project is currently taking place in Columbus, Ohio, and it is hoped that it will translate thousands more verses in coming years.
