Illuminating the Jewishness of God’s Word, this study Bible does take some brain power and focus. It includes a great introduction from Jewish sources, that helps explain the Jewish heritage and importance of this type of writing. There is no need to be a scholar to understand this approach, the introduction uses terminology easy for the basic student to understand. The topical articles as well as some of the bottom of the page notes are written by Messianic Jews as well as Christian theologians.
The book introductions are written from a Jewish perspective. There are topical articles throughout the study that teach on covenants, customs, messianic prophecy, the Holy days of Israel and more.
Not ordered in the same way as the Christian Bible, the books are grouped into seven sections which include; the Torah, Prophets, Writings, Gospels, Acts of Emissaries, Letters, and Revelation.
Fascinating reading, and focus on the heritage of our predecessors to the faith.
The start of Teshuvah just began, and I have enjoyed using The Complete Jewish Study Bible in my time of repentance and drawing near to God. It is just getting under way, but already I have found this Bible in particular to be helpful in my journey.
I love the traditional names being used for the Lord, LORD, and God. This Bible has given me an opportunity to study as a Christian, but with a historical mind set.
As we enter into a season of the Feast of Trumpets, I have enjoyed reading about the different Jewish feasts in the bible as well.
There is just a wealth of historical knowledge in this volume, compared to my traditional Bible. Yet, it is still God's Holy Word.
Very informative and great for anyone who wants to learn more about our Christian History.
