Is there something missing from your English Bible? Yes.
As a matter of fact, there's a LOT missing from your English Bible translation that is present in the original languages!
The New Messianic Version, challenges both Jews and Christians to see that the whole Bible is Jewish. It restores the names of people and places to their "Jewish" pronunciation by more accurately transliterating their names, and it translates every name of people and places in-line with the text, so that it reads much like an "Amplified Bible."
Additionally, Author Tov Rose says, "Today, Jewish people and Christians alike suffer a similar kind of blindness concerning the nature and person of God: Because of this, they do not know their God as they should. There is a secret hidden in your Bible, and this is the only Bible that clearly reveals it by transliterating both forms of the Divine Name." He doesn't use the Sacred Name to encourage people to speak the Divine Name, but to teach something several New Testament authors also taught:
This Bible answers the one question most Christians and Jewish people alike get wrong, "Who is the God of the Hebrew Bible that performs miracles, and is seen and spoken with by people at least 44 times?"
If you said, "The Father," then you've missed several important New Testament revelations about the identity of this Divine Person!
The New Testament book of John 6:46 Jesus says, 'No man has seen The Father...' well then," says Tov, "who have people seen?" This Bible Version clearly shows you who the "author" really is, and it isn't God the Father. As a matter of fact, John calls him "The Word," Paul calls Him, "Messiah," and Jude calls Him, "Jesus!"
The New Messianic Version clearly tells you which Old Testament Names of God represent Father God, and which others represent The Son of God--an ancient teaching understood and written about by the New Testament authors.
Tov again, "For example, just look at Isaiah 44:6: 'Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: "I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me."' Then look at the New Testament's book of Revelation 22:13 where Jesus says, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." Obviously, there is something more to our theology that is clearly misunderstood among many of today's Christians and Jews alike. "Jesus said unto them, 'Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.'" (John 8:58)." Many Christian and Jewish scholars believe Jesus actually pronounced the Unspeakable Divine Name when he said that, identifying himself as that Divine Person!
Jews are challenged by the implication that the Tanakh is an incomplete Bible without the New Testament understanding that Yeshua (Jesus) is the God of the Hebrew Bible. Christians are challenged with the fact that they are joined to the Jewish people through faith in the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). Christianity can only be truly understood only from a Jewish perspective, hatred of Jewish people (aka: Anti-Semitism), can have no place with followers of Jesus.
In short, The New Messianic Version restores the Jewish flavour and understanding of those first generation followers of Jesus.
