A Companion Volume to the Jewish New Testament
Author: David H. Stern
Publisher: Messianic Jewish Publisher
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. Highlights Jewish features and Jewish references. Corrects mistranslations from an anti-Jewish theological basis. Freshly rendered into English using the Greek texts, this is a must for learning about first-century faith.
New Testament Objections
Author: Michael L. Brown
Publisher: Baker Books
A Jewish person has different objections to Jesus than an atheist, yet most apologetics books are geared toward conversing with non-religious people about the gospel. Michael L. Brown, a Jewish believer in Jesus, has been writing popular books on talking with Jews about the Messiah for years. Now he takes those discussions even further with this newest volume of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus. It focuses on the New Testament and traditional Jewish objections to Jesus, giving believers the important background information they need when discussing matters of faith with people who share many of their beliefs. This book is the perfect starting point for gentile and Jewish Christians who wish to speak intelligently with their Jewish friends or family.

Commentary on Romans has an evangelical perspective, and seeks to give a fresh understanding of the scripture. The needs of those reading or teaching Romans are to know the ideas, thoughts and message of the book verse by verse not simply paragraph by paragraph. Romans lays the foundation for theology in many ways. But this book helps one to think his way through the divine message then and interpret it for the present time.

Since time immemorial the Song of Songs (SofS) has been a source of amazement and inspiration. The countless translators and interpretations of this book differ strongly from each other. Does the Hebrew text indeed justify this? To answer this question, an unprejudiced philological analysis is necessary that keeps strictly to the text, which does justice to the context, and approaches the book intrinsically as rationally as possible. These methods followed by the author make clear that the SofS is a continuous story, which runs from SofS 1.2 to 8.14 with a cohesive structure, which is readily comprehensible and logical. That even applies to verses (e.g. 2.15; 6.12), which are seen by everyone as puzzling. Emendations are practically never necessary, eliminations not at all. The analysis makes plausible that SofS 1.2-8.4 is set in the harem of Solomon. The female protagonist, who has earlier lost her heart to a shepherd, is held there against her will and prepared physically and mentally for a meeting with Solomon by a personal attendant, who first appears in SofS 1.9; she does not succeed in winning her for Solomon. In the SofS a consistent use of language is employed, which means, for example, that the individual speakers are recognisable; this, together with the intrinsically cohesive structure of the work, is a strong argument for one author/editor. The use of veiled language for specific female or male parts of the body occurs more often than is recognised by others. The SofS is the story of the love, which unites two people. It is unique and faithful, and encompasses the whole of the person. Full justice is done to the related erotic-sexual aspect in a satisfying and harmonious manner.

More than 300 Bible or New Testament translations, including the popular King James Version, have been produced in English in the past 600 years. Not all translators produced complete Bibles; some translated only New Testaments, or Old Testaments, or the four Gospels or the Epistles, or even shorter portions. These translations, both obscure and well-known, were undertaken by diligent individuals working either alone or in committee. This reference work provides entries on 346 of the men and women involved in producing an English language translation, including planning, organizing, translating and editing. Each entry includes the individual's year of birth and death, place of birth, education, occupations, and literary accomplishments; notes on various editions; the rationale for their work; and samples of their translation. For committee translations, the chairpersons and project initiators are covered. Important anonymous translations are also included (arranged under the version's name). The work is fully indexed.

It is arranged on the same general plan as Mr Jones's successful companion volume on the New Testament. It contains 201 photographs, maps and drawings arranged in groups with a connected commentary which describes each picture in detail, explaining its significance. The whole collection provides a background study of the Old Testament lands and peoples. The sections deal with the geographical setting, the archaeology of the region, the periods of Old Testament history from the earliest times to the Hellenistic period, the social background, the Old Testament books as literary productions, the background of Jewish religious life. Maps are skilfully simplified to give only the information relevant to understanding the Old Testament itself The diagrams explain technical subjects. The photographs, of scenes, buildings and works of art, and the continuing tradition of Jewish religious practice, give life and visible confirmation to the study of the Scriptures.
