Open Bible Stories
Jesus Christ said to his disciples, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations [people groups] baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commended you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20 (NIV)
This command still applies to His disciples. There are still thousands of people groups without the Bible in their own language. How can people learn about God’s love for them without any Scripture?
In the course of thousands of years, missionaries have spread the word around the world that Jesus Christ is God’s son, making the way for salvation. There are believers in many of the world’s language groups. They have believed—now they want to grow in faith. How can they? There is no Bible in their language.
Do we really believe that everyone should have access to the Bible? There are over 1,900 language groups without one verse of Scripture in their heart language. Wycliffe Associates’ goal is to see Bible translation begin in every one of these languages by 2025.
This is a monumental task! It is a God-sized task. Yet, nothing is impossible with God. He has made a way.
The hearts of millions are at stake. The time is now!
Wycliffe Associates has a brand new tool for evangelism and Bible translation. Open Bible Stories is a set of 50 fully illustrated Bible stories retold in language that is easily translated in as little as SIX WEEKS.
These Bible stories provide the entire scope of God’s Word to people who have never even heard of God’s love and redemption. Each book you provide shares 21 stories from the Old Testament and 29 from the New Testament ranging from man’s fall into sin to God’s plan of reconciliation through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Open Bible Stories is also a great launching point to accelerate traditional Bible translation efforts, opening God’s Word to MILLIONS who still wait for Scripture in their heart language.
Once local translators complete Open Bible Stories, they can easily transition to a full Bible translation program.
Each printed copy of Open Bible Stories costs just $2.00. How many copies of Open Bible Stories can you give to the lost waiting for the gospel today? Please generously help spread Bible stories to those who wait.
