The History of Bible Translation video template is a great tool to help national, mother-tongue Bible translators understand the significance of Bible translation against the backdrop of history.
The package is in Video Template form consisting of images and a script file accompanied by PhotoStory 3 free software and directions.
The story begins with the earliest written forms of Scripture and follows the progression to our present day Scriptures. Starting with the Hebrew Old Testament, the overview tells the story of how the need to put the Scripture into the language of the people drives the need to translate. It traces the roots of the Greek, Hebrew, Latin and European language Bibles culminating with our present day translation work. It also highlights those translators who were key figures in the world of Bible translation such as the Hebrew scribes, Jerome, Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther and others.
As national translators see this short history, they will be encouraged to see themselves as part of a larger historical movement and as playing a significant role in the worldwide translation movement.
