What a joy it is to see people’s enthusiastic response as we distribute our new Hebrew-Russian diglot Bibles to individuals and congregations around the country!
Israel’s population of approximately eight million includes 1.4 million Russian immigrants and their children. Among them are many members of the local body of Christ. To help them assimilate and integrate with the local Hebrew-speaking body, to support their scripture needs and to support cross-cultural outreach, we have published this much-needed Bible which we believe will be a significant tool for the building and growth of the local body of Christ. We are grateful to our friends and partners who made it possible not only to produce this Bible but also to bless the local Russian-speaking believers with more than 1000 free copies. We trust the Lord to continue this work and bless more people with this Bible.
The Russian translation is in today’s spoken Russian and was translated from the original Hebrew and Greek. When this Contemporary Russian Translation was released in Russia it quickly became the most popular Bible available there. The Hebrew includes the Massoretic text and the New Testament in Modern Hebrew.
