Belarus Pastor Translates Bible
In 12 years, Pastor Anthony Bokun translated Biblical books from Hebrew and Greek Koine into Belarus's contemporary language.
Pastor of the Minsk Evangelical Church, "John the Baptist," said he began work in 2011.
I thank the Lord for allowing me to finish the translation of the Bible into the Belarusian language at this time, Pastor-translator said.
Pastor Bokun's translation is the first Belarusian printed book and the eighth in the world printed Bible in the folk language.
On August 6, 1517, Francis Skaryna, a medical sciences doctor, ordered a printed edition of Psalms in Prague and subsequently published the Bible in Belarus.
