The Bible Society of Nigeria has concluded plans to hold the 4th edition of the annual Bible quiz competition for the deaf community
A Statement by the Society’s Media Manager, Mr Ben Mordi informed that the Bible quiz, which will be conducted in the Nigerian Sign Language, will hold at the Christian Mission for the Deaf, Shomolu, Lagos on November 9, 2023.
Mordi explained further that the quiz competition is organised to fulfill BSN’s mission to make the Holy Bible available to Nigerians in their preferred languages and formats and help them engage with the word of God through life-transforming programmes.
The contestants – from 11 schools for the deaf according to the statement, “are expected to answer questions from the Chronological Bible Stories translated for the deaf in the Nigerian Sign Language by The Bible Society of Nigeria. The BSN has a Deaf Translation Centre in Ibadan, Oyo State, where the Bible is being translated into the Nigerian Sign Language for the Deaf.”
The Bible Society of Nigeria is a not-for-profit interdenominational Christian organisation that translates the Bible into Nigerian languages, publishes, distributes, and raises funds for the Bible work. It also organises life-transforming programmes that help people engage with the Word of God. So far, BSN has the complete Bible in 27 Nigerian languages and 222 Chronological Bible Stories in Nigerian Sign Language for the Deaf.
