Pastor Kumuyi produces Yoruba Bible, ‘Bibeli Mimo Atoka’
Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, has produced a Yoruba Bible concordance, called Bibeli Mimo Atoka.
Kumuyi, 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.
According to a broadcast by Deeper Christian Life Ministry, the newly-produced Yoruba Bible is “one of the most reliable and readable Bibles” for personal study and teaching.
The church stated, “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.”
Kumuyi said the Bible was specially prepared, adding that “it is true to the original with cross-references” and that the major doctrines of the scripture were also highlighted, among other features.
Urging other Christian leaders and ministers to get theirs, Kumuyi said he had also started using it.
