Di Jamaiekan Nyuu Testiment!

It has been revealed, by the Bible Society of the West Indies, that the cost of producing the Jamaican New Testament was three hundred and fifty thousand US dollars.  The project to translate the second half of the bible into Jamaican took four years of testing and research.

Since the launch of the project many people have criticised spending such a vast amount of money on such a task. However it has been made clear by the Bible Society that all the funds used for the project were raised overseas for this specific intention.

It is believed that the existence of a Jamaican text will make a greater impact on local communities and will encourage people towards religion.
