JUNE 10

Today’s Wycliffe Bible Translators, a Christian missionary organization, which is dedicated to translating the Bible into languages of unreached people groups, gets its name from John Wycliffe, the first man to translate the Bible into English. Although the Bible is by far the most translated book in the world, there are still thousands of languages into which the Bible has not been translated. Even more tragic than this is the fact that it is estimated that 1.7 billion people in our world today have never heard the name of “Jesus,” the one “name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Truly, there is an ever-increasing urgency for Christians today to get God’s Word to the unreached people populating this fallen planet, a planet that is now fast running out of time.
