The Torah (Law of Moses): is it in full 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 saying, "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.
David Stern writes for messianic believers but this commentary is easily the most balanced available and is suitable for those Christians who wish to understand the context of our faith.
I love browsing this book, and when people ask me questions about how Jewish people have felt about the issue of Messiah, I often reach for this volume. Stern presents the many sides of each issue, letting the reader come to his own conclusions. It is well-written, concise, thoughtful, and well-balanced.
I'd say this book is essential for anyone who is interested in the Jewish origin of the Bible as it succeeds on two levels - first as a good, solid commentary on the New Testament, and then as an exposition of the meaning of many of the words and phrases of the NT in their original Jewish context.
