Japanese Bible Translation

Bible is the concretization of divine words in human language. The holy scriptures engraved in the sacred book are gospels of humanity. Bible translations in different languages have brought this consecrated canon closer to people all around the globe. The history of Japanese Bible translation is rich and varied.

The historiography of Japanese Bible translation is interesting. During 1859 when the first missionaries arrived in Japan no Japanese scripture were on hand. The first full fledged Japanese translation of Bible was the translation of the Gospel of Matthew done by Jonathan Goble, an enthusiastic Free Baptist missionary. After that Japanese Bible translation gained momentum and in 1880 the whole New Testament was translated. Today the most admired Bible in Japan is the "Japanese Interconfessional Bible," the magnanimous compilation of both the Old Testament and New Testament which was completed in 1987.
