This product is not currently available to purchase.

Overview

The New Testament is a Jewish book, written by Jews, initially for Jews. Its central figure was a Jew. His followers were all Jews, yet no translation—except this one—really communicates its original, essential Jewishness. Freshly rendered into English using the Greek texts, this is a must for learning about first-century faith.

This edition includes only the New Testament text. Purchase the Complete Jewish Bible for the full Bible text.

David H Stern born in Los Angeles in 1935, is the great-grandson of two of the city's first twenty Jews. He earned a Ph.D. in economics at Princeton University and was a professor at UCLA. He then received a Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary, did graduate work at the University of Judaism, and was active in the Messianic Jewish movement. Dr. Stern authored the highly acclaimed English translations, the Jewish New Testament, the Jewish New Testament Commentary, and the Complete Jewish Bible which are available from Logos Bible Software.

In 1941, The United States is drawn into World War II. During that same year, Dr. Henry Einspruch publishes his classic book, The Yiddish New Testament, a breakthrough in evangelistic literature for Jewish people. Over the following decades, the publications of Lederer/Messianic Jewish Communications have been widely used to impact thousands of Jewish people with the Good News of Messiah. These books and tracts have been distributed in the Orthodox Jewish community, have been given out to Jews in the former Soviet Union, and have been used by Messianic congregations and Jewish outreaches all over the world. Messianic Jewish Publishers mission is two-pronged: Reaching out to Jewish people with the message of Messiah and teaching the non-Jewish spiritual family about their Jewish roots.

    Hey fam, quick question: How is this resource different from the Complete Jewish Bible (https://www.logos.com/product/6645/complete-jewish-bible)? I know the Complete Jewish Bible has both OT and NT in it, but is this NT translation any different from that found in the Complete Jewish Bible?

    Excellent companion to the Jewish Background - so many Christians forget that this move of God now called Christianity began with a Jewish mindset not American Evangelical - While there tends to be a Messianic Jew bias to difficult passages like 2 Corinthians 3 which calls the law a ministry of death and condemnation - Many Jewish believers find that a hard one to swallow. But nevertheless it is a great resource. The rights of it outweigh to bias

    It's a B-grade product. He just took some regular Bible and changed a few names to their Jewish originals. I got rid of it long ago.

    A somewhat refreshing rendering in a Jewish nomenclature the idioms and names more akin to the first century, but limited as a Bible for serious study and public reading outside Messianic church communities.

    I didn't realize how much of the Jewishness of the New Testament was missing; but this version has restored much of it.
