Jehovah’ Witnesses in Ukraine hosted a series of Bible exhibitions from October 7, 2018 to June 7, 2019 to showcase the release of the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures in Russian Sign Language or RSL. This is a huge achievement in Bible translation efforts.

The exhibition was hosted by several cities in Ukraine, including Lviv, Kharkiv, Kyiv, Dnipro, and Odesa. Before each of the exhibitions, printed and video invitations were sent out to deaf and hard-of-hearing people. The Ukraine branch of the Public Information Desk also sent out invitations to the media, educators as well as state officials.

The first event at Lviv City Deaf Club boasted of a wide range of digital tools which could help the deaf in their Bible study endeavours. Attendees were shown these digital tools and provided explanation and demonstration of how they work. One of these tools is the JW Library Sign Language® app, which can download, organize, and has play Bible and sign language videos from the Jehovah’s Witnesses official website. It allows users to download these sign language videos so that they can watch them on their mobile devices when they are offline.

Apart from these modern technological tools, the exhibitions also had a plethora of historical displays where different formats throughout the centuries of the Bible from scrolls to today’s formats.

Attendees could also see a 1927 edition of the Bible, which was one of the most notable displays at the exhibitions. Now that the Russian Sign Language (RSL) version of the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures is available, people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, those who struggle with speech and other people who use Russian Sign Language will be able to gain accurate knowledge of the teachings of the Bible.

    А также. Я, бывало, наблюдал некоторые публичные мероприятия тех людей (якобы "верующих во Христа"), которые свою - и только свою - церковную организацию считают "истинной" и

    А, значит, истинная Церковь - это исключительно какая-то внешняя оргструктура (эклезиальная юрисдикция), которую её руководство - на основании каких-то конкретных правил (канонов), им понимаемых

    Безусловно, Церковь Христова каноническая. Церковь не зависит от вашего субъективного мнения. Вам остаётся отнести себя или к этой канонической Церкви, или к чертям. Выбор за вами.

    Бузусловно и несомненно, что слова Христовы истинны. ----- Остаётся только выяснить, какая именно Церковь является истинно Христовой, и кто эти "черти", что так против неё
