The first complete translation of the New Testament into Eskimo was published by the British and Foreign Bible Society “for the use of the Christian Esquimaux in the mission-settlements of the United Brethren on the coast of Labrador.” The United Brethren were the spiritual heirs of the Moravian Brethren, a central-European Protestant brotherhood whose evangelism influenced John Wesley and the early Methodist movement.
