PBS Welcomes a New Doctor for the Bible Cause

IMG_1324The Philippine Bible Society (PBS) is blessed to have yet another expert in its roster of certified Bible scholars.
Rev. Edgar Ebojo, who went on study leave in 2009, has completed his doctoral studies at the University of Birmingham, in the United Kingdom, under the supervision of renowned ancient manuscripts expert Professor David C. Parker.
Armed with his hard-earned degree, Dr. Ebojo returns to the country with his wife Irene and son Dayao, to re-assume his post as Translations Department Manager of PBS. He hopes also to contribute in advancing the cause of Scripture translation in the country.
Preserving the Word of God through faithful translation, efficient distribution, and Scripture engagement, are the values that steer PBS towards the vision of a Philippines transformed by God’s Word.
Long fascinated by the mysteries behind the production of ancient biblical manuscripts and how they were transmitted, Pastor Egay, as Dr. Ebojo is fondly called, profiled the characteristics and behavior of the different people who were involved in the production of Papyrus 46 (P46)-the oldest surviving (c. A.D. 200) and most extensive manuscript witnessing to the Letters of Saint Paul.
IMG_1377Seeking to decipher not only what was written but also how and where the text was written, Dr. Ebojo’s study also looked into the scribes who are the functional equivalent of modern-day typesetters-proofreaders and copy editors. These unnamed individuals contributed immensely in the preservation of God’s Word through the ages.
Dr. Ebojo’s doctoral study was made possible under the PBS staff development program and was jointly funded by PBS, the Bible Society of Singapore, UBS, and the Langham Partnerships.
Asked about the greatest lesson he learned in his academic journey, he proclaims, “By His grace, for His glory!”

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
