an exciting and original way of understanding the New Testament from a Jewish point of view.
Jewish New Testament Commentary – book – hardcover
- The Torah (Law of Moses) – is it in 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 sayings, “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.
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 choseness 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 connections, and Jews to discover their Jewish Messiah. These two books belong on the shelf of everyonewho wants to understand the Bible better.
