Wycliffe Reaches Milestone in Bible Translations

Ad Feedback

A milestone has been reached in the goal of translating the Bible to into every language in the world.

For the first time in history, there are Scripture translation projects underway in more languages than are languages left to translate.

According to Wycliffe Bible Translators, there are now 2,075 Scripture translations in progress. Only 1,967 languages still lack a translation project.

"This is really a God thing because we couldn't do it on our own. These figures represent the work of many other agencies as well as the Church worldwide," Wyclyffe Bible Translators COO Russ Hersman told CBN News.

"But when you get right down to it God is wanting to see His word available to the peoples of the earth," he said.

Russ Hersman talked more about the work Wycliffe is doing, on CBN News Morning News, Dec. 11.
