Over the past few months there has been a lot of discussion about producing a children’s Bible in Ateso. The Bible will contain a number of the Gospel stories paraphrased from the Ateso Bible, which is currently being revised. The Children’s Bible will also contain the English translation, and is hoped to be used as a resource for teaching English as well as being used in Churches and Sunday Schools across the region.
After a lot of planning, the work has recently started! The committee met in April 2016 to discuss which stories to produce. These include a selection of stories and miracles in Mark’s Gospel, as well as the death and resurrection of Jesus. Local children will be asked to contribute artwork for the Bible, so it will be a truly Teso project.
Below are some example artwork by Ateso children, which may be published in the Children’s Bible.
