Overview

The Scriptures is a literal translation of the Bible. There are many stylistic features that set it apart from other Bible translations. For the Old Covenant Scriptures, this translation maintains the original book order of the Tanakh: Torah (Law), Nebi’im (Prophets), and Kethubim (Writings). The table of contents clearly outlines the order of the books for those unfamiliar with the Tanakh. Original Hebrew is used for the name of the Father and Son and other Hebrew names and places are transliterated. The footnotes and explanatory notes bring further clarity to the text.

  • Old Covenant Scriptures follow the Tanakh order
  • Includes a pronunciation table, footnotes, and explanatory notes
  • Improvements to the text—seeking a yet closer equivalent to the literal meaning of the original language
  • Removal of doctrinal comments from footnotes, explanatory notes etc., (including deletion of prophecy hairlines) in favour of more useful notes—thus clearing away obstacles to your unbiased study of Scripture
  • Maps, timelines, and illustrations have been added
  • Quotations / allusions from the Tanakh (O.T.) are in bold type in the Second Writings (N.T.), and are accompanied by the text references—aiding your understanding of the original contexts, and how they influence the writers drawing upon them

    How many people are required to pre-order before we can receive our order? I need it for my studies alongside the CJB and KJV.

    Why is it taking SO LONG for the Scripture 2009 Edition to go into production. I pre-ordered this 6/2019 - almost three years ago! Logos lets get on the BALL.

    This is a very good translation as it has a better grasp on the original language and introduce the reader to something of the Hebraic mindset and culture. "Its aim is producing a literal translation rather than a paraphrase, and gives the student of Scripture a tool which in some way helps them to 'experience' the Scriptures as Semetic rather than Hellenistic" -- Preface to this translation

    What are the issues/problems with this translation? I've heard it is more of a paraphrase, is that the case? Why is there hybrid Hebrew/English translation of Greek writings? This seems like a problematic and biased translation.

    This is a very important Messianic translation of scripture with a unique perspective that emphasizes glorifying the name of Yahweh as He commanded us to do. This 2009 Edition greatly improves and enhances the presentation from the original edition and needs to be included in our Logos library.
