All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,

"That men may know Wisdom and
instruction, understand words of insight"
-from The Breath of God  (Proverbs 1:1).
The very first words written in Armenian -chosen
because Jesus Christ is the Wisdom of God (1 Cor 1:24)
from the walls of St. John Armenian Church
The Catholicos Saint Sahag the Great
and the Monk St. Mesrob Mashdotz

Creators of the Armenian Alphabet and
translators of the Bible, the Divine Liturgy and
the Church Fathers into Armenian (AD 406)

The Holy Translators, led by Sts. Sahag and
Mesrob, did not only translate the Bible into
Armenian.  They also translated the Divine
Liturgy and the writings of the Church
Fathers.  They did this to ensure that we
received the fullness of the Orthodox Faith.  
Therefore in order to embrace this fullness,
we must study not only the Holy Scriptures
and Armenian writers but also the Liturgy
and the teachings of the same Church
Fathers endorsed by the Holy Translators
and canonized in Church tradition.
