One response to Japan Society of New Testament Studies Meeting

  1. Hi everyone,

    I’m a scholar in Chinese translation and hermeneutics of the Bible from UBC, Canada. I am currently working on a project to compare very early Chinese, Korean, and Japanese translations of the Bible, collaborating with a few other Korean studies experts from UBC and UCLA. I wonder if any of you know any Japanese scholars who are experts in the Meiji Version and Taisho Translation of the Japanese Bible. Please recommend some for us to contact if you can, thanks!

    Clement Tong
