The New Jerusalem Bible



The New Jerusalem Bible

New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." 

The 1966 original Jerusalem Bible was popular as a comprehensive version for study and personal reading. This 1985 revision takes note of recent biblical scholarship with rewritten notes and introductions, new translations to improve literary quality and accuracy, and eight pages of newly drawn maps.

Since the initial publication of The New Jerusalem Bible  in 1966, the field of biblical scholarship has expanded.  New insights into the people, lands, and beliefs of the ancient world comes to light almost daily.  The New Jerusalem Bible gives the reader the complete text of the ancient Canon of the Scriptures, as it was fixed in the fourth century A.D.  All the texts, including the deuterocanonical books and passages (those passages not included in the Hebrew Bible but found in the Septuagint Bible of the Jewish Diaspora and canonized as Scritpure by the Fathers of the Church), are present in their original "Catholic" order.  

In its revised form, The New Jerusalem Bible has been scrupulouly updated to account for the linguistic, archaeological, and theological advances since the publication of the first edition.

Some of the best features remain undisturbed: single-column format, verse numbers in the margins, chronological and genealogical tables, and an index of biblical themes in the major footnotes. Includes the books of the apocrypha (the 400 years known as the "silent years")
