Bible Reading Marathon

 

As the UK celebrated 400 years of the King James Bible, Dunstable Christadelphians read the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation in public.  The event was held at our hall in Kirby Road and wass intended to draw attention to the continued relevance of the Bible message for life today.

“It’s a quirky idea but also has the serious message that the Bible is freely available in our own language and really is a book worth reading,” said event organiser Jeremy Pearce. “It tells the story of our world and has powerful messages about how we can find peace with God.”

The well-known King James Bible was published in 1611 and owes much to the work of William Tyndale. Tyndale was executed in 1536 for daring to translate the Bible into English so that ‘even the ploughboy’ could read it. Now 400 years later it is still just as important that the words of the Bible can be heard and understood by all.

In the end it took just over 3 days and nights! Thanks to all those who supported us.

We would love to give you a free Bible, so that you can read it for yourself. Please email us here
