"Rapidly changing advancements in technology are helping to spread the Gospel message in new ways, and often in record time.

International Bible translators, Wycliffe Associates has developed new technological tools that help translate languages that are only spoken with no written form.

Wycliffe's Bible Translation Recording Kits (BTRK) along with a method called Mobile Assistance Supporting Translation (MAST) are providing indigenous translators with a new way to translate the Bible, and just as quickly for oral languages as for written ones.

Bruce Smith, president and CEO of the Orlando-based ministry, explained the need for oral translations.

'There are entire massive populations of people who have totally, exclusively spoken languages...Jesus died for them, just like He died for you and me. We can't leave them behind. We've got to reach them—and we will,' he said.

Wycliffe estimates 2,000 languages are spoken without any written form.

Translators are now utilizing the MAST method to reach those cultures where storytelling and listening is the only way of communicating and receiving information.

The MAST method enlists groups of indigenous-speaking translators working together in parallel to translate the Bible. The method helps them complete the task quickly and with a high level of accuracy.

They are translating the Bible for cultures where there is no texting, no Facebook, Twitter, the Internet, newspapers, or books.

'When they hear the Scriptures, they are hearing them in the language of their heart—the language they think in, the language they pray in, the language they dream in,' Smith explained.

Wycliffe Associates has conducted more than 200 MAST workshops where 66 new language translations were started. And 169 existing translations were accelerated because of the MAST method.

Traditional translation methods can take as long as 25 to 30-years for an entire New Testament. The first MAST method test occurred two years ago when mother tongue translators in Asia completed 48 percent of the New Testament in just two weeks.

Each Bible Translation Recording Kit (BTRK) contains a computer tablet loaded with special software and recording equipment.

Within the next year, Wycliffe wants to provide nearly 1,000 kits to translators working in areas where the people have no written language. Each kit costs $500.

'Bible Translation Recording Kits also will help us reach countless millions of people who have a written language, but who can't read,' Smith said. 'In other words, this kit is a breakthrough of colossal proportions.'

In 2015, more than 6,000 Wycliffe Associates staff and volunteers served to facilitate and translate the Bible in 75 countries."

What is 'this gospel of the kingdom'? Who is the intended audience? What related 'end' is anticipated?

The bruise to Satan's head is the last event before God is with people again. That comes in the form of Jesus becoming 'king of the earth' and that means the kingdom He comes from is the base for His authority.

Joh:18:36:
Jesus answered,
My kingdom is not of this world:
if my kingdom were of this world,
then would my servants fight,
that I should not be delivered to the Jews:
but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Re:10:7:
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,
when he shall begin to sound,
the mystery of God should be finished,
as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Agree, MHz. It is indeed good news that Jesus is sovereign over all, that his authority comes from God and that his reign is sure.

Funny how we always ask, "How could a God DO this?" when faced with disaster or adversity.

But we never say, "How could the Devil allow me to enjoy this beautiful sunset, or birth of my child?"

Curious, eh?

And what if that reasoned response to revelation means something that has nothing to do with the bible and/or Christianity? What if it has nothing to do with religion at all?

Then you weren't paying attention to the bible study. How does asking that silly question answer the question?

You see, I have had revelations and I know hundreds who have had revelations that changed our lives, deepened our faith and brought us to a personal relationship with our creator. Some led to other religions, some to spiritual paths and some to atheism. All followed the edict in the bible "seek and ye shall find, ask and ye shall receive" and all were led to a different understanding of their place in the cosmos and of the divine. Your way is fine for you but it isn't necessarily fine for others. Is it so difficult to think that god has led others to a different relationship with Life than the one you were led to?

{God has heard the saying of those [Jews] who said: "God is poor and we are rich [: and so He borrows from us. a]"

We shall write down what they have said b, and their slaying the prophets without right c, and We shall then say [to them]: "Taste the chastisement of the Burning [in Hell.]"}

The above is the meaning of the Quran 3: 181.

The reason for its revealing was:
Prophet Mohammed – salam to him – wrote a letter to the Jews of Banu Qaynuqa inviting them to the religion of the Islam, and he sent that letter with Abu Bakr, so Abu Bakr went into their school and found many people gathering around one of them called Phinehas the son of Eleazar, and Abu Bakr invited them to the religion of the Islam.

Phinehas said: "God recommended us that we should not believe in any apostle unless he produces a sacrifice to which a fire comes from heaven to devour that sacrifice; so can Mohammed do that?"
Abu Bakr said: "I don't know."

Phinehas said: "Has Mohammed any book?"
So Abu Bakr recited some ayat of the Quran until he reached to His saying – be glorified – in the Quran 57: 11, which means:

(Who would like to lend God a fair loan, and God will multiply it for him [manifold, in the life of the World], and [in the Next Life] he will have an excellent reward?)

Phinehas said: "So God is poor and we are rich therefore He borrows from us!?"

And they laughed, so Abu Bakr was angry and he smote the face of Phinehas and went out and returned to the Prophet to tell him about that; therefore, the aya was revealed.


More explanation:

181 a So God promised to punish them according to their words:
181 b i.e. the angels will write down their words in the books of their deeds, and We shall punish them accordingly on Doomsday. Such words are not unexpected from them; because their ancestors had said much more serious words when they said to Moses: "Show to us God manifestly", and they said to him: "Go you and your Lord and fight, and we shall sit here waiting."
181 c i.e. without any sin on the part of the prophets; therefore, We shall admit these criminals into Hell.

One could always teach them to read and write in English and that would open up more books for them than just the Bible as most of them have strayed from what the original version said.

Motar do you ever wonder if the god of the old testament is the same god Jesus was talking about ?

Bones , whenever I read passages like this one I pause and think for a moment or two and I often wonder how much influence the teachings of Saul had on the writers of the synoptic gospels. Seeing as how Sauls epistles pre date the four gospels.

When I studied the bible as a young man I assumed everything written was in chronological order. Interesting and quite telling to discover that nothing written is in chronological order including the new testament.
