Benga Version of the Holy Scriptures

Benga Version Of The Holy Scriptures The Benga is an African dialect, spoken by a people south of the Congo River. The gospels were originally translated each by a different missionary. Matthew was published by the Presbyterian Board in 1858, and the remaining gospels and the Acts by the American Bible Society at subsequent dates. In 1874, the Rev. R. H. Nassau, M.D., of the Gaboon and Corisco mission, was appointed to harmonize these versions and to prepare an edition embodying the results of improved scholarship and accuracy. In doing this, Matthew and Mark were entirely rewritten, and extensive corrections were made in the other portions. The new revised edition went through the press under Dr. Nassau's direction. Besides the four gospels, the book of Genesis and the Acts have also been published. (B.P.)
