Suggest New Tag::
The Torah (Law of Moses)--is it in full force today? Yeshua (Jesus) said, "Don't think that I have come to abolish the Torah... I have come not to abolish, but to complete." What did he mean?
Sha'ul (Paul) wrote, "All Israel will be saved." Was he speaking of all Jews? Messianic Jews (Jews who believe Yeshua is the Messiah)? The Church? Who is Israel?
Why did Yeshua juxtapose the saying, "Do not store up for yourselves wealth here on earth" and "The eye is the light of the body"?
Dr. David Stern, a Messianic Jew living in Jerusalem, speaks to these and other issues in the Jewish New Testament Commentary. In this companion volume to his widely read and highly acclaimed "Jewish New Testament," he offers an exciting and original way of understanding the New Testament from a Jewish point of view.
About the Author
David H. Stern, born in Los Angeles in 1935, is the great-grandson of two of the city's first twenty Jews. He earned a Ph.D. in economics at Princeton University and was a professor at UCLA. In 1972 he came to faith in Yeshua the Messiah. He then received a Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary, did graduate work at the University of Judaism, and was active in the Messianic Jewish movement. In 1979 the Stern family made aliyah (immigrated to Israel); they now live in Jerusalem, and are active in Israel's Messianic Jewish community
This commentary is a companion to Dr. Stern's "Jewish New Testament," which is his translation of the New Testament from the original first-century Greek into enjoyable modern English. This translation brings out the essential Jewishness of the New Tesament by its use of Hebrew names and Jewish termonology and by its correction of antisemitic renderings found in other translations.
The "Jewish New Testament Commentary" discusses, verse by verse, Jewish issues raised in the New Testament--questions Jews have about Yeshua, the New Testament, and Christianity; questions Christians have about Judaism and the Jewish roots of their faith; and questions Messianic Jews have about their own identity and role.
Dr. Stern is also the author of "Messianic Jewish Manifesto," which outlines the destiny, identity, history, theology, and program of today's Messianic Jewish movement, and of "Restoring the Jewishness of the Gospel," an abridgement of the "Manifesto" meant for those unaccustomed to thinking about the Gospel as Jewish.
In 1998, Dr. Stern published the "Complete Jewish Bible," his stylistically modified adaptation of an existing Jewish translation of the "Tanakh" ("Old Testament") bound together with the "Jewish New Testament."
