The New Messianic Version of the Bible is becoming increasingly popular among believers in Jesus because it puts back into an English language Bible some significant things that have been left out of other versions. Is there something missing from your English Bible? Yes. As a matter of fact, there's a LOT missing from your English Bible translation that is present in the original languages! The New Messianic Version, challenges both Jews and Christians to see that the whole Bible is Jewish. It restores the names of people and places to their "Jewish" pronunciation, and it translates every name of people and places in-line with the text, so that it reads much like an "Amplified Bible." Additionally, Author Tov Rose says, "Today, Jewish people and Christians alike suffer a similar kind of blindness concerning the nature and person of God: Because of this, they do not know their God as they should. There is a secret hidden in your Bible, and this is the only Bible that reveals it." This groundbreaking book answers the one question most Christians and Jewish people alike get wrong, "Who is the God of the Hebrew Bible?" Again, Tov, "If you said, 'God the Father' then you got it wrong, and I'm going to prove it to you. For example, in the New Testament book of John 6:46 Yeshua (Jesus) says, 'No man has seen The Father...' well then," says Tov, "who have people seen?" This Version clearly shows you who the "author" really is, and it isn't God the Father. The New Messianic Version clearly tells you which Old Testament Names of God represent Father God, and which others represent The Son of God--an ancient teaching understood by the New Testament authors and other 1st Century followers of Messiah. Tov again, "For example, just look at Isaiah 44:6: 'Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: "I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me."' Then look at the New Testament's book of Revelation 22:13 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." Obviously, there is something more to our theology that is clearly misunderstood among many of today's Christians and Jews alike. "Yeshua (Jesus) said unto them, 'Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.'" (John 8:58)." Jews are challenged by the implication that the Tanakh is an incomplete Bible without the New Testament understanding that Yeshua (Jesus) is the God of the Hebrew Bible. Christians are challenged with the fact that they are joined to the Jewish people through faith in the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). Christianity can only be truly understood only from a Jewish perspective, hatred of Jewish people (aka: Anti-Semitism), can have no place with followers of Messiah. In short, The New Messianic Version restores the Jewish flavour and understanding of those first generation followers of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Get The New Messianic Version Here: https: //

A Messianic Amidah

Author: G.R. Akers

Publisher: Booktango

ISBN: 1468917102

This book was written to do 2 things for us. First to show how what is commonly called the Lord's prayer given by our Messiah Yeshua, was a model deeply rooted in the Messiah's Jewish heritage. For it was without a doubt an abbreviated version of the Jewish prayer known as the Amidah. Secondly I give the believer in Yeshua a prayer Siddur for praying the Amidah, but with the inclusion of New Covenant Scriptures which reveals Messsiah Yeshua throughout. The reader finds out very quickly that Messiah is the answer to every petition, and the Glory of every praise within the standing prayer. One will also see the parts of the Amidah that are no longer required since Messiah's Sacrifice. Finally, we see the exclusion of the later added nineteeth blessing which was used as a curse against follwers of Yeshua.

How do Jews and Christians relate to the Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament)? Should they try to keep the laws as best they can, or has the coming of Yeshua (Jesus) changed things? The authors, all Jewish Israeli believers in Yeshua, believe that the purpose of the Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy) is to lead Israel through the broken Law and beyond, namely, to the Messiah who, Moses assures his readers, will come in the last days.

This prayer book is meant for Messianic Jews and Gentiles to use with their families. It is an attempt to bridge the gap for those just learning traditional liturgy and have desire to pray at home.

My intent when compiling and writing these prayers was to be true to the traditional Jewish prayers while making it easy to navigate and read with your children. Children who can read simple chapter books should be able to read along with parents, but don't worry parents these prayers aren't ""dumbed down."" They are simplified and on occasion updated to modern American English. The "Intro" and "How To" will get you up and praying in no time!

TLV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible, Holy Scriptures

The biblical books were written to Jews, for Jews, and about Jews, yet most Bible translations do not maintain a connection to the Jewish essence of the Bible. The TLV speaks with a decidedly Jewish voice to recover the authentic context of the Bible and the Christian faith, retaining the Jewish order of the Old Testament books, the Jewish name of the Messiah, reverence for the four-letter unspoken name of God, and many Hebrew transliterated terms, such as shalom, shofar, and shabbat. The result is a translation that is accurate, readable, reverential, and true to the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith. The TLV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible offers readers powerful features in a convenient size and readable 12.5-point type, including - introductions to each book of the Bible and the major sections of Scripture - a glossary with key Scripture references - cross references for studying biblical topics - an extensive concordance for finding familiar passages, doing word studies, and following biblical themes - Jewish blessings and benedictions: Hear O Israel, And You Shall Love, Tree of Life Declaration, Aaronic Benediction, Messiah's Prayer, Welcoming the Sabbath - Parashat weekly Torah readings - maps of Israel - and much more

The Hebrew Bible offers countless examples of how God intends a compassionate and caring attitude toward animals, our health, and the health of the planet. This attitude, as Richard Schwartz shows in his pioneering work now fully revised, has been a constant theme throughout Judaism to the present day. Dr. Schwartz shows not only how Judaism is particularly well suited to solving these problems but how doing so can revitalize one's Jewish faith.

No Joke

Making Jewish Humor

Humor is the most celebrated of all Jewish responses to modernity. In this book, Ruth Wisse evokes and applauds the genius of spontaneous Jewish joking--as well as the brilliance of comic masterworks by writers like Heinrich Heine, Sholem Aleichem, Isaac Babel, S. Y. Agnon, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and Philip Roth. At the same time, Wisse draws attention to the precarious conditions that call Jewish humor into being--and the price it may exact from its practitioners and audience. Wisse broadly traces modern Jewish humor around the world, teasing out its implications as she explores memorable and telling examples from German, Yiddish, English, Russian, and Hebrew. Among other topics, the book looks at how Jewish humor channeled Jewish learning and wordsmanship into new avenues of creativity, brought relief to liberal non-Jews in repressive societies, and enriched popular culture in the United States. Even as it invites readers to consider the pleasures and profits of Jewish humor, the book asks difficult but fascinating questions: Can the excess and extreme self-ridicule of Jewish humor go too far and backfire in the process? And is "leave 'em laughing" the wisest motto for a people that others have intended to sweep off the stage of history?

Jesus, Paul, and the Law

Studies in Mark and Galatians

Drawing upon ten years of research experience, the master scholar James D. G. Dunn presents a book on a major issue in the study of Christian origins: what were the attitudes toward Jewish law within earliest Christianity? This volume not only gathers the author's significant contributions to date but also includes new material. Divided into nine parts, it is set in the wider context of a living dialogue and debate. The introduction maps out Dunn's extensive work in Pauline and Markan studies. The final chapter, "The Theology of Galatians," serves as a summary of Dunn's current position on Paul and the law and brings the volume to a convincing conclusion.

The Jewish Gospel of John

Discovering Jesus, King of All Israel

The Jewish Gospel of John is not, by any standard, another book on Jesus of Nazareth written from a Jewish perspective. It is an invitation to the reader to put aside their traditional understanding of the Gospel of John and to replace it with another one more faithful to the original text perspective. The Jesus that will emerge will provoke to rethink most of what you knew about this gospel. The book is a well-rounded verse-by-verse illustrated rethinking of the fourth gospel. Here is the catch: instead of reading it, as if it was written for 21 century Gentile Christians, the book interprets it as if it was written for the first-century peoples of ancient Israel. The book proves what Krister Stendahl stated long time ago: "Our vision is often more abstracted by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge." Other than challenging the long-held interpretations of well-known stories, the author with the skill of an experienced tour guide, takes us to a seat within those who most probably heard this gospel read in the late first century. Such exploration of variety of important contexts allows us to recover for our generation the true riches of this marvelous Judean gospel. "A genuine apologetic is one that is true to the texts and the history, akin to the speeches of a defense attorney with integrity. Using the best of contemporary scholarship in first-century Judaic history and contributing much of his own, Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg has demonstrated that the Gospel of John is not an anti-Jewish, but a thoroughly Jewish book." Daniel Boyarin, Hermann P. and Sophia Taubman Professor of Talmudic Culture, University of California, Berkeley "Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg places the text of John's Gospel in its authentic context by examining the Dead Sea Scrolls, Philo, rabbinic literature, and suggesting innovative explanations for the nomenclature, 'the Jews.' His fresh analysis is sure to stir meaningful debate. His creative approach will make an enduring contribution to the discipline of New Testament studies." Brad Young, Professor of Biblical Literature in Judeao-Christian Studies, Oral Roberts University "For some time, research on the Gospels has suffered from stagnation, and there is a feeling that there is not much new that one can say. In light of this, Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg's new commentary on the Gospel of John, with its original outlook on the identity of the original audience and the issues at stake, is extremely refreshing." Ishay Rosen-Zvi, Head of the Talmud and Late Antiquity Department, Tel-Aviv University.

While many studies explore the literary role of the oath in general literature, none have contended with the role of the oath in the biblical narratives. This study seeks to fill that vacuum. This study demonstrates that by perceiving the oath as a literary device for plot and character development, additional or more precise meanings may be revealed in the biblical stories.

Perspectives Old and New on Paul

The "Lutheran" Paul and His Critics

Here, finally, is a much-needed review and analysis of the divergent interpretations of Paul. With a clear head and winsome sense of humor, Stephen Westerholm compares the traditional understanding of Paul to more recent readings, drawing on the writings of key figures in the debate both past and present. Westerholm first offers a detailed portrait of the "Lutheran" Paul, including the way such theologians as Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Wesley have traditionally interpreted "justification by faith" to mean that God declares sinners "righteous" by his grace apart from "works." Westerholm then explores how Paul has fared in the twentieth century, in which "New Perspective" readings of Paul see him teaching that Gentiles need not become Jews or observe Jewish law to be God's people. The final section of the book looks anew at disputed areas of Paul's theological language and offers compelling discussion on the place of both justification by faith and Mosaic law in divine redemption.

A Messianic Jewish Guide to Hanukkah

Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication, or the Festival of Lights, is not the Jewish alternative to Christmas. Although it is celebrated in the winter, this festive holiday describes a story all its own--of faithfulness to God, of bravery against all odds, and of the rededication of a defiled Temple. For Jews, Hanukkah is a time of bright lights, of delicious smells, of delightful singing, presents, and games. It is a time to proudly remember our heroes and wonder at the miracles of God.
