Another Bibles International Story

Some Bibles International consultants have used an interview format to help teach certain skills to native translators.

One team of national believers prepares a set of interview questions for a particular Bible character and another prepares to be interviewed as that Bible character.

Only one representative of each group gets up in front of the whole assembly.

But when they did this in the African country of Chad, everybody in the audience started shouting out the answers to the questions.

The consultant said, “Wait, it’s Noah who’s being interviewed!”

The people replied, “Oh, yes, but we’re Noah’s sons and he’s getting old and forgetful!”
