Complete Jewish Bible

Messianic Bible translations are translations, or editions of translations, in English of the Christian Bible which are widely used within the Messianic Judaism movement. They are completely separate from Jewish English Bible translations.

English-language versions

Complete Jewish Bible

Template:Bible translation infobox The Complete Jewish Bible is an English translation of the Bible by Dr. David H. Stern. It consists of both Stern's revised translation of the Old Testament plus his original Jewish New Testament translation in one volume.

The Old Testament translation is a paraphrase of the 1917 Jewish Publication Society version, though Bruce Metzger notes that where Stern disagreed with the JPS version he translated from the Masoretic Text himself.[1] The New Testament is Stern's original translation from the ancient Greek; the publisher describes it as "Jewish in manner and presentation."[2]

Stern states that his purpose for producing the Complete Jewish Bible was "to restore God’s Word to its original Jewish context and culture as well as be in easily read modern English." This translation was also intended that it be fully functional for Messianic congregations.[2]

Stern follows the order and the names of the Old Testament books in the Jewish Bible, rather than those of typical Christian Bibles. He uses Hebrew names for people and places, such as Eliyahu for "Elijah", and Sha'ul for "Saul." The work also incorporates Hebrew and Yiddish expressions that Stern refers to as "Jewish English",[2] such as matzah for "unleavened bread" and mikveh for "ritual immersion pool".

The Orthodox Jewish Bible

The Orthodox Jewish Bible, completed by Philip Goble in 2002,[3] is a paraphrase that applies Yiddish and Hasidic cultural expressions to the Messianic Bible.

Heinz Cassirer's translation

After the Cassirer family fled Hitler's persecution of Jews, Heinz Cassirer came to believe that Jesus was the promised Messiah. He eventually translated the New Testament, God's New Covenant: A New Testament Translation.

Tree of Life Bible

The New Testament has been translated by Messianic translators under the title Tree of Life Bible.[4] It is sold in an edition with only the New Testament, the Psalms alone, or the New Testament bound together with the 1917 JPS translation of the Tanakh as The Shared Heritage Bible.
