The General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has released a new Yoruba Bible concordance, called Bibeli Mimo Atoka, which he authored.
The holiness preacher said he completed the work with the support received from a team of Yoruba scholars.
As gathered, the cleric reportedly spent 15 years on the project which was published by the Bible Society of Nigeria.
In a broadcast by the church, the new scripture is said to be “one of the most reliable and readable Bibles” for personal study and teaching.
It was further said that: “Bibeli Mimo Atoka offers the most literally accurate translation from the original while keeping the integrity of the Bible.
The new Bible is one of the legacy works of Pastor Kumuyi, who clocked 79 years of age last June – a popular Nigerian cleric renowned for “holiness reaching” over the past decades.
“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,” the church added.
The author, Pastor Kumuyi said the Bible was specially prepared, and “it is true to the original with cross-references, ” adding that the major doctrines of the scriptures were also highlighted, alongside other features.
According to the cleric, he had started using the Bible, hence, he urged Christian leaders and ministers to also get their copies.
