Jewish New Testament Commentary: A Companion Volume to the Jewish New Testament

4.34  ·  Rating Details ·  198 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
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. Uses neutral terms and Hebrew names.

I enjoy books that present the Jewish background of the Christian faith. David Stern's book is an essential volume on my bookshelf (along with his translation of the New Testament).
There are numerous fascinating insights to be gained from this book. He has done a good job of selecting the most important points for each New Testament book and chapter rather than turning this work into a multi-volume series (I am sure there is far more that could have been written).

A lot of helpful insights from a Messianic Jewish perspective, but quite legalistic.

I am enjoying the translation of Dr.Stern's and the interpretations that he gives of the texts for our time as well as in the past.

This will be a life long reading for me. I tend to read every footnote and also compare with other translations.

Okay, so this is a harder task to finish than I thought ... so many things to study! No estimate on when I'll finish at this point.
