We are thrilled to announce that the next print of the First Nations Version New Testament is now avalable.
This print includes all 4 Gospels, Acts and Ephesians.
Awareness of the FNV is growing and several national organizations are using it in their Bible studies and outreaches with First Nations people.
The First Nations Version of the New Testament is one of the more important developments in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Indigenous peoples to come along in a very long time. To have a version of the Bible that speaks to the inner Native voice is something that will resonate as we share the Good News with our Native brothers and sisters. Lutheran Indian Ministries is proud to attach its name in support of this great work and we are excited to be a part of the team in helping it to get into the hands of Native peoples everywhere.

The FNV has quickly become a go to resource for Native InterVarsity across the nation. We are using it in our small group Bible studies and it is influencing the words we choose when we invite students to the full life that Creator Sets Free offers. The word choices of the FNV not only resonate with Native students, but they are offering a fresh hearing of Scripture for non-Natives. For example when we talk about ‘bad hearts’ and ‘broken ways’ people can see that in themselves and others. But when we talk about ‘sin,’ defenses and blinders go up immediately. I would recommend FNV to any Native person who wants to learn more about Jesus and any non-Native person who longs to be able to read scripture with new eyes.
