A student of a reputed theological college repeatedly called us for copies of the Hebrew and Greek Bibles, anxious to get his personal copy as he was unable to get a copy from his institution. He asked why the Bible Society of India could not print and provide enough copies. Many such requests like this have been made in the past several years.
Bible translation, inspired by God attempts to translate many languages from the languages it was originally written – Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.
As the demand for the Scholarly edition of Hebrew and Greek was ever increasing across the world, especially for the Bible Society of India, today we are very thankful to the German Bible Society in helping Bible Society of India to get the long awaited license to print these Scholarly editions ourselves. We are grateful to our General Secretary, Rev. Dr. M. Mani Chacko for his constant support and guidance. For him it was a dream fulfilled as he emotionally said in his speech while releasing the Hebrew (OT) and Greek (NT) Bibles.
The Bible Society of India now brings the Indian print version of Scholarly editions in two volumes of Holy Bible in its ORIGINAL language. These prints are available to Theological Students / Scholars, Theological Colleges / Institutions, Pastors, Teachers and laypeople by maintaining International Quality at affordable Indian price:
Hebrew Old Testament (Hard Bound) ₹700 per copy
Greek New Testament (Hard Bound) ₹500 per copy
