Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper Life Church has published a Yoruba concordance Bible, the bible is called Bibeli Mimo Atoka. The church revealed that it took 15 years to finally finish the project.
This is indeed good news for the Yoruba Christians as they can now have a better understanding of the bible.
The project reportedly took 15 years to complete. It was noted that the project was handled by a team of Yoruba scholars and published by the Bible Society of Nigeria.
The Deeper Life Bible Church describes the new version as one of the most reliable and readable Bibles for personal study and teaching.
According to the church, the new version retains the integrity and accuracy of the bible.
The 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.
