Ethiopia: Church Leaders Bring Bible Translation to Life
A new Bible translation is helping priests in Ethiopia teach God's Word more clearly.
Church leaders in northern Ethiopia are becoming stronger Bible teachers through support from American Bible Society’s financial partners. A new Bible translation for the Tigrigna language launched in October 2015, and now Bible Society of Ethiopia is training priests in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to teach the good news of God’s Word in the heart language of more than 4.5 million Tigrai people.
“The priests expressed their gratitude,” reports one Bible Society representative in Ethiopia who helped facilitate the training. He says that equipping a priest with a Bible in their heart language nourishes lots of people with the Word of God. Praise God that the Scriptures are now being taught in an accessible and effective manner for so many Ethiopian believers.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
