This project was organized by The Bible Society of Singapore in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel and The Bible Valley Society.
For the project, sheets of paper were distributed to cell groups in CHC on which members handwrote several verses. The efforts of all 27 zones were then combined to form the entire New Testament. This handwritten New Testament will be showcased at the Bible Valley in Jerusalem, together with other handwritten Bibles in different languages from all around the world. It will be the second such project in the past decade.
In addition to creating unique, one-of-a-kind Bibles, the project has another more meaningful cause. For each handwritten verse, the contributing organization will make a nominal donation of at least S$2. Monies collected will be channeled towards Bible translation, publication and distribution efforts to needy Christians in less developed countries. Part of the funds will also go to support the Bible Valley Society project.
Through this project, The Bible Society of Singapore’s goals were for churches to experience a unifying passion for the Word of God as the people wrote out the Bible by hand. In addition, it would allow underprivileged Christians to experience the life-changing power of the Word of God through the financial blessings this project brings.
Certainly, City Harvest has made its mark as our very own handwritten Bible from Singapore is now showcased at the Bible Centre in the Holy Land.
