The General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Bible Church, Pastor Folorunsho William Kumuyi has produced a Yoruba version of the Holy Bible dubbed “Bibeli Mimo Atoka”.
The revered cleric, with the support of a team of Yoruba scholars, reportedly spent 15 years on the project, which was published by the Bible Society of Nigeria.
In broadcast by the Church, the Bible is designed for easy understanding and is highly recommended for personal study as well as teaching.
“Bibeli Mimo Atoka offers the most literally accurate translation from the original while keeping the integrity of the Bible. This new version takes care of changes that have occurred over time in the meaning of some expressions found in ancient Yoruba and makes the Bible more comprehensible and relevant to today’s readers.”
Pastor Kumuyi also added that the major doctrines of the scriptures are highlighted and the Bible is specifically and specially prepared to add that is true to the original with cross-references.
