Farsi/Persian (Iran)

31 October 2016  
Share |


The revision of the 1895 standard Farsi (Persian) Bible is continuing, albeit at a slower pace than either we or the main translator would wish. In 2015 the decision was made to publish the New Testament and Psalms as an interim step, with the whole Bible to be completed at a later date. Thus recent work has been focusing on these portions of the Bible. The revised texts for the New Testament and Psalms are currently being proofread, and agreed changes to the text are being made as well as relevant changes to the Old Testament text. 

 Fifty thousand copies of the Farsi Gospel according to John were printed by Bearing Precious Seed of Milford, Ohio, USA and funded by firstBible International for free distribution in Iran and amongst the Iranian Diaspora. While these are being widely circulated, there are also plans for producing a professional-quality audio edition of Farsi John.

We would ask you to pray for help to be given to those working on the revision of the Farsi Bible, and also to pray that the Lord would bless the distribution of these Gospels according to John.

The Farsi Gospel according to John can be read or downloaded here.
