The arrival of the 400-plus-year-old antique bible to the shores of Papua New Guinea has been described as a defining moment for the country.
The bible arrived to a rousing red carpet welcome at Port Moresby's Jackson's International Airport, where thousands of Christians and Church leaders from across denominational lines turned up to personally witness the occasion.
Among them were, Prime Minister Peter O'Neill, Finance Minister James Marape, Forest's Douglas Tomuriesa, Foreign Affairs, Rimbink Pato, Community Development's, Delilah Gore and Opposition Leader Don Polye.
Other dignitaries included, Eastern Highlands Governor, Julie Soso, Mul Baiyer M-P, Koi Trape and P-N-G Defence Force Commander, Brigadier-General Gilbert Toropo.
Parliament Speaker Theodore Zurenuoc says, he does NOT believe the bible has special powers, however, the leaders have taken a deliberated action to change the destiny of the nation.
"There is nothing superstitious here. We do not believe in superstition.
"We do not believe that this bible has some special powers or good omen that will miraculously transform our nation. No, prime minister.
"My colleagues and I, including yourself, the chief justice and many leaders in our nation, we do not believe in cargo cult, we believe in hard work and we believe in discipline to achieve results.
"And this historical gift to our parliament, which is the symbolic to all of us, is the book that contains the infallible, incorruptible and eternal word of God, that we can respond to derive values to build our nation into the future," said Speaker Zurenuoc.
