Who is doing the translating?
ViBi (“Video Bible”) is a Deaf-led, Japan-based organization founded in 1993 with the vision of providing the Deaf communities of Japan a way to access the Living Word in their heart language - Japanese Sign Language (JSL).
Donors from the U.S. kicked off the early stages of the project and allowed the very first team to translate Scripture from Greek and Hebrew texts into JSL in a video format, delivering it for the first time to Deaf churches as well as the community at large.
With the help of donors both overseas and in Japan, we have built the project from a few people recording videos in borrowed rooms into a fully functioning team with exegetical researchers, full-time and part-time translators, translation consultants, technical staff, administrative staff, and more.
Without your understanding and support, we would not be where we are today.
