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.
