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.

Key Features

  • Old Covenant Scriptures follow the Tanakh order
  • Includes a pronunciation table, footnotes, and explanatory notes

What’s New in the 2009 Edition?

  • 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
