The Holy Scriptures: Tree of Life Version (TLV) is a new translation of the Holy Bible prepared and vetted by a team of over two dozen Jewish and Christian scholars from five international Messianic Jewish organizations. Based on the Hebrew Masoretic text and the 27th Nestle Aland Novum Testamentum, the aim of this Messianic-sensitive text is to be as accurate as the NASB, reverent as the NKJV, and readable as the NIV.

This rendition—ike the Bible itself—is for all people. The Tree of Life Version will be an outreach gift that Messianic Jews can give their non-Messianic friends, those who have trouble coming to terms with what the movement is all about. And speaking of ‘movement,’ another distinguishing characteristic of the Tree of Life Version is that it is a joint venture production. The work product of some seventy Messianic Jewish scholars and friends, it reflects the collective wisdom of a maturing movement—one that is deepening through time and circumstance.
The Tree of Life Bible has proven to be a very insightful and interesting translation of the Bible. I never read a version of the Bible before that gave great insight of the Jewish background. It’s amazing to see how much scripture contains so much information and knowledge that wouldn’t have been understood until one understands the Jewish culture of the time.
