PBS, TOPIC Hold Seminars in Tacurong, Cotabato
Philippine Bible Society (PBS) Translation Manager Rev. Edgar Ebojo joined the Trainors of Pastors International Coalition-Philippines (TOPIC) in a series of seminars held in the cities of Tacurong and Cotabato in Mindanao.
Meanwhile, Rev. Ebojo tackled “Deuterocanonical Books” and “Textual Criticism and Bible Translation.” He also took the time to introduce the Bible Ministry to his 14 students, especially on the PBS’ translation process and principles.
Rev. Ebojo was also able to gather feedback on one of the PBS products, which “gave the impression that while the format was appreciated, the language seemed to have been a turn-off,” as it was not in the preferred language of church leaders and pastors in Sultan Kudarat.
In Cotabato City, after passing through MILF camps and military checkpoints, he again linked up with TOPIC, and gave the same lectures to 18 pastors and church leaders during the leg of the seminar there. PBS Davao Regional Auxiliary Bible Officer Rev. Elde Jabonera, whoa arrived in the city a day before the seminar, assisted Rev. Ebojo in promoting the PBS ministry and its products.
