The New Testament is a Jewish book - written by Jews, mostly about Jews, and for Jews as well as Gentiles. Its central figure, the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) was and is a Jew. Vicarious atonement, salvation, immersion (baptism), 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.
Awesomelamb.com and The Awesome Store are delighted to introduce a new translation of the New Testament that will transform your understanding of the Bible...The Jewish New Testament
Why is this New Testament different from all other New Testaments?
Because the Jewish New Testament expresses its original and essential Jewishness.
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 reaffirming the equality 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.
The Jewish New Testament is a translation by Dr.David H. Stern,
Dr. 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 Master 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.
Scholars and researchers have long realized that a vital link to understanding key concepts and passages in the New Testament directly relate to issues of first-century Jewish customs and manners, dress, thought and lifestyle of the early New Testament church.

What the Publisher Says: This is a must read for any one serious about understanding the true cultural (Jewish) context of the New Testament. I was amazed at how Dr. Stern was able to lay things out in such an easy to understand manner with out the fluff of most modern commentaries. The Complete Jewish Bible is now my favored translation and this is an excellent companion.
Drawing on years of research, Dr. Stern relates the New Testament text to the "Tanakh" ("Old Testament"), to the historical setting, to rabbinic materials and to Christian theology. He answers questions Jewish people 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 being both Jewish and Messianic.
He demonstrates that the New Testament upholds Jewish values and verities, such as the oneness of God, the "chosen-ness" of Israel, the sanctity of the Torah, and the importance of works along with faith. He also shows how the New Testament speaks to modern issues like assimilation, intermarriage, missionizing and anti-Semitism. Finally, in terms of the Greek and Hebrew languages, Judaism and first-century culture, he explains controversial "Jewish New Testament" renderings.
The "Jewish New Testament" and "Jewish New Testament Commentary" challenge Christians to rediscover their Jewish connection, and Jews to discover their Jewish Messiah. These two books belong on the shelf of everyone who wants to understand the Bible better.
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 Jewish-ness of the New Testament by its use of Hebrew names and Jewish terminology and by its correction of anti-Semitic 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.
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."
