Bible Translation Today
Paul writes to Timothy: ".from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
The Amsterdam Declaration
"We pledge ourselves to keep the Scriptures at the very heart of our evangelistic outreach and message and to remove all known language and cultural barriers to a clear understanding of the Gospel on the part of our hearers."
Scripture translation has accelerated
At least another 2,000 languages need a translation programme
In the next 25 years it is possible for a translation programme to start in all the remaining languages that need one.
