Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church commemorates Bible translation
« on: September 24, 2012, 08:21:58 PM »
This year is the bicentennial of the translation of the Bible into Malayalam. In Thiruvanathapuram, India, the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church is paying tribute to this event.

From the article:
Quote
A book containing a collection of studies regarding the contribution of the Ramban, edited by M. Kurian Thomas and titled Kayamkulam Philipose Remban - Vayakthium Sambhavanaum, will be released by Perumbadavam Sreedharan, Chairman, Kerala Sahithya Akadami, at VJT Hall Thiruvananthapuram, at 11. 30 a.m. on Tuesday.

For minute there, I thought it said that the Jewish philosopher Maimonides (who also goes by the name, Rambam) translated their Bible into Malayalam.

Monks who are priests and teachers are known in the Syriac tradition as Remban (Hebrew variant is Rabban). Fr. Philipose who reposed in the Lord 200 years ago was a Monk-Priest and Teacher and hence known as Philipose Remban.

Interesting.
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ
