    Enriched Bible Reading

    The Complete Jewish bible is a great addition to my Bible reading and understanding. As a Christian I have understood that a lot can get lost in the english translations. This Bible brings a clearer understanding of what exactly is meant in the use of specific words in bible passages. It is a reliable study I highly recommend for the serious Bible student looking for a little something extra.

    A reviewer

    A fine translation, correctly emphasizing the Jewishness of Jewish scriptures whose main intent was to bear witness to the arrival of the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Christ). It's about time that a translator correctly substituted the word 'Messiah'/'Mashiach' for 'Christ' in an English New Testament. The title 'Christ' comes from the Greek word 'Christos,' and is merely a translation of the Hebrew title 'Messiah'/'Mashiach.' It was entirely appropriate for Stern to substitute the word 'Messiah' or 'Mashiach' every place that the word 'Christ' occurs in the New Testament. After all, this is a translation, not a transliteration, and the goal of translation is to carry over actual meaning from one language to another. 'Christos' means 'Messiah,' and therefore it SHOULD BE translated as 'Messiah.' Whether you regard Jesus as the Messiah or not is beside the point. Be assured, however, that Jesus is, indeed, the Jewish Messiah: According to Daniel 9, the priestly and prophetic offices/ministries of the Messiah had to be fulfilled before the destruction of the 2nd Temple. The 2nd Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. Jesus fulfilled and performed the relevant priestly and prophetic offices of the Messiah before the 2nd Temple was destroyed. Jesus is thus the only candidate for Messiah. Therefore if Jesus is not the Messiah then there is no Messiah. So, if the Messiah comes, be assured it will be a 'second coming,' since the Messiah had to (and did) come before the 2nd temple was destroyed. When Jesus comes again he will fulfill all things pertaining to the royal office of the Messiah, and will reign as a priestly king, 'after the order of Melchizedek'--(Psalm 110:4 Hebrews 5:6 et al.).

    Being christian without understanding Jewish Culture, would be like someone saying they are Russian without living in Russia, or having more than a kindergarten level Russian vocabulary. This Bible helps you understand the culture of your faith.

    If you take bible verses out the of the context of the Jewish culture, you are missing most of the messages. This beautiful translation has deepened my relationship with the Word of God. I feel that I understand the "Bible Stories" of my childhood with so much more insight. It is a beautiful translation of the scriptures, and my heart rejoices when I read it.

    Messianic Scholarship

    I am greatly sadden by what this book. It seeks to represents a true textual stance of what is meant to be understood in the Greek. Which in fact does the Geek texts no justice. His lack of Hebraic detial concerning many misunderstood passages remain just as botched and misconstrued in his version as is found in all English translations that exist. Such examples of the word Nomos in Galatians is falsely understood to mean Torah in all its cases of which he seeks to translate it as.

    Three stars for the 'Jewish NT'

    This book is an improvement to the popular Christian translations because it uses Jewish terms and gives valuable commentary to elucidate the Hebraic context the New Testament was originally written in. also, I like the fact that is uses the Hebrew names for the characters of the Bible. Names like Jesus, Mary and John are obvious remnants of the European cultural interpolation that NT has become victim to. Yeshua, Maryam and Yochanan are correct. However, it shares some of the major problems of the Christian translations. For instance, it is translated from the same erroneous Greek manuscripts that the Christians use instead of the more authentic Aramaic ones. I personally would not suggest this book. The Hebrew Roots Version by James Trimm is far superior. It shares the same benefits as this bible but it is translated from the Aramaic and Syriac texts as opposes to the Greek. Also, he gives the variant rendering in the various translations and manuscripts. So, the Jewish NT is a step up from the average bible but still far from accurate. I give it three stars assuming the KJV and other commercially-driven translations are the lowest. But, I give it a 3 because of the Hebrew names and commentary.

    I Also Recommend:

    Complete Jewish Bible This is One of most prized Bibles. The title states it all, in that it is complete as to references and the accurate translation of the Hebrew text.

    The translation by David Stern of the Complete Jewish Bible is one of the most easily read and understood version of the Bible I have in my library.
    As I am Jewish I can appreciate the correct translation of Hebrew into English because he has used the correct wording chosen to bring Gods' words to life. As one knows the translation from one language to another sometimes leaves the message missing pieces that make the story incorrect that you are reading, this translation does not. I have also bought other copies for my friends. This copy I bought for my teenage son, because he likes this translation. He said "it tells it right". I honestly believe that anyone will enjoy and appreciate this version.

    A Jew, then Christian, now Messianic Jew (all-in-one).

    Simply marvelous. Helped me reconcile my Jewish heritage with my Christian faith, and helped me connect to a community I never knew existed. This book is the Book. This work strips away the Gentile nature of Y'shua and puts Him back into context. What a work! I would like to see it in alternative formats, that would be my only complaint. Marvelous!

    Nice compliment to a literal translation

    Once you get past the 160 page introduction, this 'dynamic equivalency version from jewish culture' has a flavor that other English Bibles don't. A man doesn't choose his past, and yet without this man's past this translation wasn't possible. This is the only english Bible with both OT and NT that has traditional book order of the old testament. For that reason alone it should be on you wishlist.

    THE MYSTERIES REVEALED!

    It is paramount that every believer in Yeshua--Jew or Gentile by birth--acquaint themself with this particular translation. It clarifies the significance of Old Covenant Laws to New Covenant believers; dispels any argument against Yeshua being the Promised Annointed One--or even Jewish at all; it also portrays familiar stories with a deeper colour than we have traditionally been heretofore acquainted with. This translation shows a consistent thread of God's grace from the very beginning to the very end of its content. You cannot help but to see Yeshua in EVERY book. This is a MUST-HAVE!!!

    It is a very good translation showing the original Hebrew names and We are learning a lot of them. We met the translator when we were in Israel.

    Excellent Bible version

    This version really opens up the roots of Christianity and helps put the many Jewish concepts and traditions into perspective.

    The only reason I give 4/5 instead of 5/5 is the table of contents. Hopefully the publisher or Author reads these comments, because the Table of Contents needs improvement for an ebook of this size. It is rather difficult to navigate.

    You should add a clickable table of contents to each CHAPTER of each book. A book like Psalms takes a TON of scrolling to get to the later chapters.

    Another NookBook Bible has each Book name link to a list of all the chapters in another set of links. And ALL the notes (like the superscript numbers) link to their respective notes. (See the NIV Christian Recovery Bible for an example of this system.)

    THE Jewish Bible does NOT CONTAIN THE NEW TESTAMENT-THIS IS GROSSLY DISHONEST

    The Jewish bible does NOT INCLUDE THE NEW TESTAMENT!!!!

    This is GROSSLY dishonest! The New Testament has ALWAYS BEEN REJECTED BY THE JEWISH PEOPLE. PEOPLE (of Jewish extraction or otherwise) WHO ACCEPT THE NEW TESTAMENT ARE CALLED CHRISTIANS!!

    It is A PERVERSION to refer to the New Testament as part of the Jewish bible. No doubt this is being publish by some Jews for Jesus type organization, which tries to convert Jews to Christianity by telling poorly educated Jews that can accept Jesus and still be Jewish. This is NOT the case. (As an aside, the Israeli Supreme Court, a very liberal court, ruled many years ago, that when you accept Jesus you are no longer Jewish, and therefore you cannot be considered Jewish while accepting Jesus and the New Testament.)

    Ask ANY Orthodox, Conservative or Reform rabbi. By definition, no true Jew accepts the New Testament.

    Note: This is not an attack on the New Testament as a Christian Bible. However it is totally dishonest to refer to it as part of the Jewish bible.

    Pretty sad that people who are selling this so called Jewish Bible are lieing as to what they are selling. So much for their broader message.

    REMEMBER: ONE OF GOD'S NAME IS TRUTH. This description is a lie!

    Great example of Missionary misrepresentation to catch Jewish souls

    I rated this a Five Star for the perfect example of clearly trying to catch unsuspecting Jews as is often typical by 'Messianic Jews' to become Jesus believing Christians. Calling it the 'Jewish Bible' is a clever trap to make people think the New Testament of Christianity is 'JEWISH/JUDAIC' or to have them read it without realising what it is

    Great translation as far as translations go. Still holds the bias of the translator that you do not get when you read and know the original. In all the message is there.

    Highly Recommended for all Israel and "Real Jews" who follow Messiah Yeshua.

    Just a quick not for the negative reviews mentioned above. Yes God is Truth. To be a real Jew you have to accept the Messiah Yeshua(Jesus) as the Jewish Messiah which He is or you are not a Jew at all. He is The Alpha and the Omega. Whoever does not accept this is fighting God. You will see the destruction of Israel in the near future as they have rejected the Messiah Yeshua. Don't believe me? Wait and see what happens. It's in prophecy and in Revelation and comes straight from Messiah's mouth. This is a great book and especially for those who are seeking Yeshua and need His Love. If you tell people this is not a good book you are doing the works of the adversary and turning God's children away from Him. People need to understand that this book and any Bible are for learning about His Love for us. We all need it and anyone refuting this is a liar and selfish. Please DO NOT slander the Word of God again and turn people away from Him. There are so many lost people in this world who are suffering and need to read about Him.

    Great Bible. We needed the Jewish view and notes.

    Now the 1 thing I do not like is if I want to go to for example
    Ezekiel 40 I choose Ezekiel but there is no chapter # to choose from I have to keep flipping pages or move the page ball and hopefully find it.

    Fix that problem and this is a great Bible.

    I like this Bible as it brings the Jewishness back to us
