Who Is Jesus - Jula

ISO 639-3 (dyu)

Dioula (Dyula) is a Mande language spoken in Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire and Mali. It is one of the Manding languages, and is most closely related to Bambara, being mutually intelligible with Bambara as well as Malinke. It is a trade language in West Africa and is spoken by millions of people, either as a first or second language. It is either written in the Arabic alphabet or the Latin alphabet.

Jula is spoken by 2,520,000 people: 1,470,000 in Cote d'Ivoire, 1,000,000 in Burkina Faso, 50,000 in Mali.

Dioula language and people are distinct from the Diola (Jola) people of Guinea-Bissau and Casamance.

There are evidently 4 dialects of Jula spoken in Cote d'Ivorie and Burkina Faso although they are all currently classified as one language.

Here are two examples of John 3:16, both identified as Jula.
