International (MNN) — It can be difficult to read our Bibles. There’s a fair amount of concentration required to understand what we’re reading.
And unless you’re a theological scholar, you probably don’t read your Bible in a second language. If you did, you’d miss some very important nuances of the text.
That’s kind of what it’s like for the deaf community: their heart language, sign language, is completely different from written language. Until recently, sign language has been overlooked for Bible translation.
