This Papua New Guinean bilum (string bag) is a great representation of how Scripture and culture can come together in a wonderful way. While culture may have a unique understanding of life, when it meets the Scriptures, it blends together to become a beautiful work of art. Bible translation without an understanding of the culture it is being integrated into, is easily misunderstood or rejected. But when the Scripture is viewed through cultural lenses it becomes real and vibrant. The meaning becomes clear. Pray as translators work in PNG cultures, they can learn the cultural nuances, in order to make the Scriptures come alive.
