(Worthy News) – The founder of the YouVersion Bible app has stated that 95% of the world’s population could have access to a full Bible in their own language by 2033, Premier Christian News (PCN) reports. Bobby Gruenewald said collaborative efforts using new translation methods and technologies are speeding up the pace at which the Bible could be soon accessible in thousands of languages worldwide.
PCN reports that YouVersion is working with illumiNations to have the New Testament translated for 99.9% of the world’s population by 2033. “We think it’s possible in most of our lifetimes here by 2033, to be able to see God’s word translated into 100% of the languages,” Gruenewald told PCN. The entire Bible could be translated in 95% of the world’s more than 6000 languages by then, Gruenewald added.
