Complete Jewish Bible Jul 1, 2008
As far as I am concerned this is the best bible there is. I have several and I always go back to this one.
Excellent Jun 6, 2008
for anyone desiring to fully follow our Lord and Saviour,and not follow religious practices taught by men or women,then this is the bible for you. Knowing,and studying,the Jewish roots and background for the Christian faith,and that our Lord and Saviour was a Jewish Rabbi,not any of the denominations that people try to make Him out to be,will surely equip anyone who desires to follow Yeshua(Jesus),in a deep and fullfilling way.
For Serious Bible Students May 14, 2008
I have no idea why it took me ten years to find the "Complete Jewish Bible." This is the first time I have seen a New Testament with the text presented, footnoted, and cross-referenced from a Jewish perspective. Why is that important? Because Jesus was a Jewish man, who taught Jewish people in a Jewish context. Virtually all of his earliest disciples were Jewish, as were the members of the fledgling Christian movement.
Unfortunately, as a result of the failed Bar Kokhba rebellion in 135 CE, the Jewish Christian movement ceased to exist and only Gentile Christians remained. There is nothing inherently wrong with being a Gentile Christian. But their Greco-Roman world had little understanding of the Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim, Mishna, or Qabbalah (still in oral form at that time) that Jesus used or may have used. By the fourth century, Christianity became orthodox, the state religion, the Jews were the enemy, and the message of Jesus twisted to suit political purposes.
Though Dr. Stern is not a Bible scholar, he is a brilliant man, and he made a substantial contribution Bible studies with this work. Most helpful, in my view, are his references from the B'Rit Hadashah (NT) to the Tanakh (OT) which are more comprehensive and insightful than those found in the vast majority of Bibles.
Serious Bible students have several versions of the Bible on their shelves. The Complete Jewish Bible should be one of them.
Complete Waste of Money May 14, 2008
Don't waste your money on this translation, it is every bit as bad as the christian translations if not worse...
The translation plays musical chairs with words, for example, it takes the fathers name which is spelled Yod-Hey-Waw-Hey in Aramaic and Hebrew and then translates it to Adonai which is spelled spelled Aleph-Dalet-Nun-Yod, the problem is Adonai is already used in the bible so because the change the fathers name to adonai they then have to change adonai to lord to make it read right.
If you want a better translation that does not play musical chairs with words buy "The Scriptures" by "Institute for Scripture Research" (ISR) instead. You can buy it right here on this site. I have owned them both and found the Complete Jewish unfit for me and my house.
CJB buyer review Apr 30, 2008
1.Text The Bible is very easy to read. The flow is so good that I often read several chapters in one go - something that does not occur when I read other versions.
2. Print & Binding Excellent.
3. Summary This is truly one of a kind. Gives this reader a completely new perspective of the faith.
