More… about Bible translation

On Wednesday I shared a short video about Bible translation. It’s a simple little cartoon story about the motivation that many of us that work with Wycliffe Bible Translators share.

The thing is, in being so short it misses some of the great other stories that can be told as a result of this work.

The following is a longer video, filmed in Uganda where a translation project has just completed the New Testament. I like this so much because it not only tells the story of a Bible translation project and the impact of that on the local church but also how the work brought benefits to the wider community.

  • It talks about the efforts to help people get engaged with the translated New Testament.
  • The competitions to write new music based on the translation.
  • How new school materials are being produced to help children learn to read and write (including topics on health, hygine, clean water, taking care of babies, local stories and HIV/AIDS).

There’s a 3-minute version of this video available too
