The Jewish New Testament: Deluxe Edition
Translation by David Stern
70 Hours on 2 MP3 CDs
A new translation of the NT that will transform your understanding of the Bible.
Why is this New Testament different from all other New Testaments? Because the Jewish New Testament expresses its original and essential Jewishness. The New Testament is a Jewish book—written by Jews, mostly about Jews, and for Jews, as well as Gentiles. It’s central figure, the Messiah, Yeshua, was and is a Jew. Vicarious atonement, salvation, immersion, the new covenant, and the very concept of a Messiah are all Jewish. In sum, the New Testament is built upon and completes the Hebrew Scriptures.
Freshly rendered from the Greek into enjoyable modern English by a Messianic Jew (a Jew who honors Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel), the Jewish New Testament challenges Jews to understand that Yeshua is a friend to every Jewish heart and the New Testament is a Jewish book filled with truths to be accepted and acted upon. At the same time, while affirming the quality of Gentiles and Jews in the Messianic community, it challenges Christians to acknowledge the Jewishness of their faith and their oneness with the Jewish people.
David Stern was born in Los Angeles in 1935. He earned a Ph.D. in Economics at Princeton University and after coming to faith in Yeshua the Messiah, received a Masters of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and did graduate work at the University of Judaism. In 1979 he and his wife, Martha, made aliyah (immigrated to Israel). They live in Jerusalem and have two children.
