We realize that we’ve most certainly changed from our beginnings as a small, tape lending library over 40 years ago. Today, as a leader in digital Bible production and distribution, we are excited to announce we now have a collection of Scripture recordings – comprised of both audio and video – in more than 850 languages, which are spoken or signed by over 5.7 billion people!
While we’ve completed most of the recordings in this collection, many recordings are from partner organizations who give us permission to place their recordings on the Digital Bible Platform for wider use and global availability.
Believe it or not, 13 of the languages included in this repository are partner-produced sign language Video Bibles that now power one of the most downloaded Deaf apps in the world – Deaf Bible. How amazing is that?
Our founder and president Jerry Jackson put it best when he said, “I have to shake my head and laugh every time I stop to think about what we’ve become since the early days. Completing Audio Bibles in hundreds of languages for those who cannot read, and now we can also reach the Deaf worldwide with sign language videos – it’s almost unfathomable.”
The newest recordings to be released are:
- Chechen – Russia
- Chin Matu – Myanmar
- Embera Katio – Colombia
- Kagayanen – Philippines
- Kogi – Columbia
- Malvi – India
- Zapoteco de San Vicente Coatlán – Mexico
We remain fervently committed to the goal of recording and providing access to the Bible in every translated language!
