The Pharisee called Saul gripped the satchel containing the Sanhedrin’s arrest warrant more tightly as he considered the righteous course that lay before him. The heretics known as “The Way”—those who believed that Jesus, a man from the tiny town of Nazareth, was the promised Messiah—had to be stopped before their destructive teachings could infect more Jewish minds.

Eventually, the whole flock will come to know and recognize the shepherd’s voice and words.

The reality for thousands of years has been this: Bible translation is an ongoing,
We are blessed to begin 2016 by announcing that Audio Scriptures are now available in 9 more languages – bringing the total number to 937. And recognizing that the amazing milestone of 1,000 recorded languages will be reached within the next 12 months makes this year that much more special to our ministry!
