An international project, in which individuals from different countries across the globe inscribe verses from the Bible in their own language.
To build bridges across age, religion and culture, the Embassy of Israel and Delhi Bible Institute bring to India the event "People of the World Inscribe the Bible," which is part of an international project, in which individuals from different countries across the globe inscribe verses from the Bible in their own language.
The project gives people from around the world the opportunity to inscribe a verse from the Bible in their own language. The books will be displayed at the Bible Center to be established in the Adulam district, in Israel. All participants in the project will be awarded an official certificate. A computerized system will enable participants to discover other foreign language versions of the verse that they have inscribed together with the names of the writers, as well as inscribers of other verses.
The inscribing of the Bible in Hindi will commence on 27 January 2006 at the World Book Fair 2006 and the project will be carried throughout India until its completion. This project has already been undertaken in Germany, South Korea, Taiwan and other countries.
The first verse of the Bible will be written during the inaugural ceremony of the project on 27 January 2006, which will be attended by the Ambassador of Israel to India, H.E. Mr. David Danieli and Pastor Isaac J. Shaw, Executive Director of the Delhi Bible Institute. The Bible will be kept at the Delhi Bible Institute – Bible Sale and Display Booth at the World Book Fair 2006, Pragati Maidan and the general public can write down the verses of the Bible in Hindi from 28 January to 4 February 2006.
