Update: 1:25PM REPRESENTATIVES of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma this morning witnessed the launch of the original iTaukei language Old Testament edition which was translated from the Hebrew language by Reverend David Hazelewood in the mid-19th century.

Church communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the Bible edition was compiled by Methodist historian Dr Andrew Thornely who previously compiled the original i-Taukei language New Testament edition translated from Greek language by another missionary, Rev John Hunt.

The launch was held at 9am and the meeting continues at the Centenary Church in Suva, Fiji.
