The New Tibetan Bible (NTB) has been translated into Modern Literary Tibetan. Modern Literary Tibetan is used to communicate among Tibetans cross-regionally, and can be seen on smart phones, internet web sites, as well as in newspapers and textbooks in Tibetan publishing. Modern Literary Tibetan has been developed over many years by the Tibetan community as the written standard of communication across the Tibetan regions.
Spoken Tibetan exists in the many oral dialects found in the Central, Kham and Amdo regions. While Tibetans read Tibetan from the same literary script, these oral dialects influence the way the literary text is read out loud. These unique reading styles could be called “reading dialects,” due to the close association with the reader’s native oral dialect and the way the text is read out loud. The NTB team, in following the pattern of language use by the Tibetan community, has recorded the NTB New Testament into Audio Bibles in the Central, Kham and Amdo Tibetan reading dialects.
These NTB New Testament Audio Bibles have been well received and are available on the You Version app, New Tibetan Bible (NTB). The team is now recording the NTB Old Testament into Audio Bibles and will release these as they are finished. These Audio Bibles are done to a high quality, mastered in partnership with Faith Comes by Hearing, and are copyright by them. We as an NTB team now offer these Tibetan Audio Bibles as a spiritual sacrifice to God though our Lord Jesus Christ.
