Church Publishes New Edition of Portuguese Bible

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

After five years in the making, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released a new edition of the Holy Bible in Portuguese that is now available online (AsEscrituras.lds.org). Printed copies of the Portuguese Bible are being published for worldwide distribution beginning in March 2016. It is also available in the Gospel Library mobile application. Nearly 1.4 million members of the Church speak Portuguese as their native language.

The new edition of the Portuguese Bible is based on the 1914 version of the João Ferreira Annes de Almeida translation, which was chosen because of its high quality. The translation also addresses outdated grammar and vocabulary.

In a video, President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency, encouraged Portuguese-speaking members to study the new edition of the Bible, which is titled Bíblia Sagrada, Almeida 2015.

“The scriptures are the ultimate guide to learning the gospel — a key to understanding our Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ,” said President Eyring. “As you prayerully learn and teach from the scriptures, your testimonies will grow and you will receive greater direction in your daily lives.”

“The Holy Bible is a link to our brothers and sisters of other religions — a common ground of faith built upon the words of our Father, the writings of ancient prophets and the enduring teachings and Atonement of our Savior and Redeemer,” he said.
