The Jewish Study Bible is a one-volume resource tailored to the needs of students of the Hebrew Bible. Nearly 40 scholars worldwide, representing the best of today’s Jewish biblical scholarship, contributed to the Jewish Study Bible’s translation and interpretation. A committee of highly respected biblical scholars and rabbis from the orthodox, conservative, and Reform Judaism movements produced this modern translation.
No knowledge of Hebrew is required to make use of this unique volume. The Jewish Study Bible uses the Jewish Publication Society TANAKH translation. Since its publication, the Jewish Study Bible has become one of the most popular volumes in Oxford’s celebrated line of bibles.
The Jewish Study Bible is now available in a state-of-the-art digital edition using the power of Logos Bible Software. This is an easy-to-use tool that helps make Bible study more fruitful than ever. The quality of scholarship, easy-to-navigate format, and vibrant supplementary features bring the ancient text to life.
This resource does not include the Bible texts. The TANAKH is available separately and can be purchased here.
- Offers informative essays that address a wide variety of topics
- Provides in-text tables, maps, and charts
- Includes full-color New Oxford Bible maps
Praise for the Print Edition
Another superb holiday gift, especially appropriate for non-Orthodox Jews, is The Jewish Study Bible from Oxford University Press, which finally stands alongside the many verse-by-verse commentaries for Christians. This work also is recommended for serious-minded Christian readers.
The Jewish Study Bible encompasses a monumental assembly of critical learning and acumen, representing the achievement of an entire generation of Jewish scholars. The commentaries are not only erudite but purposeful and theologically alert. A heroic undertaking, brilliantly conceived and executed with panache.
—Jacob Neusner, research professor of theology and senior fellow, Institute of Advanced Theology, Bard College
Serious students of Judaism will want to have a copy of this outstanding and surprisingly affordable study Bible, which stands in the tradition of Oxford’s great study Bibles.
