New Testament now available in 105 Mexican languages

By March 8, 2004

Mexico (MNN) — With the recent publication of the Mexteco Coatzospan New Testament, the Bible League has now published the full New Testament in 105 Mexican languages.

Through the faithful work of Wycliffe Bible Translators, and in partnership with the Bible League, those who speak Mixteco Coatzospan now have the Word of God in their own heart language. The Mixtec live in the state of Oaxaca, where the Bible League has focused major efforts in the past five years. Coatzospan is considered a dialect of the Mixteco language, and has put about 5,000 known speakers.

There are thousands of remote people groups around the world still waiting for Scriptures to be translated and published in a native tongue. The Bible League is aggressively working to expand Scripture availability for more of these groups.

The Bible League is also developing a different method for evangelism and discipleship training that uses audio and reading assistance. This program is being used as a model among unreached people groups around the world.
