Jewish New Testament - Hard cover
While compiling a commentary on the New Testament from a Jewish perspective, Dr. David H. Stern, a Messianic Jew—a Jew who honors Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah of Israel—found he frequently had to retranslate certain words and phrases to capture their Jewishness.
So much of this was needed that Dr. Stern set aside work on his commentary, which he had begun in 1977, to translate the New Testament. His commentary could then be completed. It was published in 1992 as the Jewish New Testament Commentary (JNTC).
The version he created differs from all other New Testaments in that it communicates the original and essential Jewishness inherent in the Gospel but missing from most English translations. He included some Hebrew words (transliterated into easy-to-read English) and Jewish concepts.
Taken from the original Greek into modern English, the Jewish New Testament was introduced to the book world at the International Christian Booksellers Convention in July, 1989 in Atlanta. Endorsed by many theologians, scholars, and religious leaders, the Jewish New Testament (JNT) has helped Christians reconnect to their Jewish roots and helped Jews recognize that Yeshua (Jesus) was/is the Messiah.
