Here’s a glimpse of the press conference where we released the first ever North Korean/South Korean Parallel Bible last month. Reporters from all the major South Korean Christian media were in attendance, as well as some secular outlets!
Koreans share a common race and language; however, the physical and cultural separation of North and South Korea for more than 60 years has led to a 40% divergence between the North and South Korean dialects. Therefore, it is difficult for North Koreans meeting South Korean missionaries and North Korean defectors transitioning to life in South Korea to comprehend the Word of God in the South Korean translation.
