Translated into Delaware by David Zeisberger (1721–1808). (BRB1167)
Lieberkühn studied theology at Halle and Jena, where he came into contact with the Herrnhut community. Beginning in 1736 Lieberkühn served as a Moravian missionary and pastor in Holland. His Gospel Harmony, The History of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, is a compilation of the four New Testament gospels into a single narrative. Another Moravian Missionary, David Zeisberger, translated the text and presented it to the Delaware Christian Indian community at Goshen, Tuscarawas County, Ohio on May 23, 1806. Zeisberger, a minister, translator, and advocate for the rights of Native Americans, served more than sixty years in the mission field.
