The History of Bible Translation

The story begins with the earliest written forms of Scripture and follows the progression to our present day Scriptures.  Starting with the Hebrew Old Testament, the overview tells the story of how Bible translation started.  It traces the roots of the Greek, Hebrew, Latin and European language Bibles culminating with present day translation work.  It also highlights those translators who were key figures in the world of Bible translation such as the Hebrew scribes, Jerome, Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther and others.

The package is in Video Template form consisting of images, music and a script file accompanied by PhotoStory 3 free editing software and directions.
