Bible Will Be Inscribed In 100 Languages

A Jerusalem museum has launched a project involving thousands of people who are hand-inscribing Bibles in their native languages, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The interfaith volunteers from 31 different countries are taking part in the project backed by both an Israeli NGO and the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and aims to unite people across cultural and religious divides.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the ultimate goal of the project is to have 100 Bibles inscribed in 100 languages within five years, and they will be displayed at a Jerusalem museum.
