Ogbia Bible Translation Project
Population: 450,000 | 2015 Budget: ₦12626040.00 | Project Number: 000046
The Bible Society of Nigeria exists to make "the
Holy Bible available and affordable to all Nigerians in their preferred
Languages and formats, helping them engage with the Word of God through our
life transforming programmes." This project is therefore intended to meet the Scriptural needs of the Ogbia speakers in Nigeria. It is expected that the translation and publication of the Bible in their mother tongue will enhance their understanding of the Scripture thereby bringing more people unto the Lord Jesus Christ. It will also encourage literacy in the Ogbia language if the speakers have the Bible translated into Ogbia. The project is going to be in two phases. The first phase is the translation and production of the New Testament while the second phase is the translation and production of the whole Bible. The New Testament was published and dedicated in September 2020.
