Complete Jewish Study Bible
Publisher: Messianic Jewish Publishers
Christians and Messianic Jews who are interested in the rich spiritual traditions of their faith will be thrilled with this brand new study Bible. “The Complete Jewish Study Bible” pairs the updated text of the Complete Jewish Bible translation with extra study material, to help readers understand and connect with the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.
The Complete Jewish Bible shows that the word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, is a unified Jewish book meant for everyone Jew and non-Jew alike. Translated by David H. Stern with new, updated introductions by Rabbi Barry Rubin, it has been a best-seller for over twenty years. This translation, combined with beautiful, modern design and helpful features, makes this an exquisite, one-of-a-kind Bible.
The Complete Jewish Bible by David H. Stern was first published as a complete Bible in 1998. The Jewish New Testament was published in 1989. This is primarily the work of one man rather than a team of translators.
The Old Testament is a paraphrase of the Jewish Publication Society Tanach, a public domain work. It is based on the Masoretic text with no Septuagint influence. The Divine Name is represented by ADONAI in all upper-case, or as Adonai ELOHIM when needed to avoid the use of Adonai ADONAI. The book order of the Old Testament follows the Jewish tradition, as do the verse numberings. When verse numbers differ from the Christian tradition, the latter is shown in parenthesis ().
The New Testament is a translation by Dr. Stern from the UBS Greek text, 3rd Edition. In the New Testament, the name of the Messiah is printed as Yeshua. The Divine Name is represented as ADONAI in places where the translator believed it should appear.
The Complete Jewish Bible has the weekly Torah portion readings marked in the text, and at the end of each portion the Haftarah and suggested New Testament readings are listed.
