A group of Christian volunteers and theologians have been working on translating the entire Bible into British Sign Language.
The Bible Translation Project (BSL) aims to turn the scriptures into a series of BSL videos for deaf people to use as a resource.
Currently they have completed chapters one to nine in the book of Mark.
Since September they have also started a new project of translating the book of Genesis.
Rev Canon Gill Behenna who ministers at Bristol deaf church and who is part of the BSL Bible project told the BBC she wants deaf people to experience the same connection with God as she does when she reads the Bible: "When I read the Bible I am sometimes inspired by a single verse or story, and I sense God communicating with me through that. I want the same for Deaf people.
"Although a huge number of Deaf people are bilingual, it's different having the words of scripture in your own heart language - the language you use and you identify with."
She explained to the BBC that instead of translating the project word-for-sign, they are translating whole theories.
