The One New Man Bible will help the Church understand and appreciate its Jewish Roots, and finally recognise that Y’shua (Jesus) was born Jewish, that He grew up Jewish, and that He is the same today as He was then. (Hebrews 13:8)
The Hebrew Scriptures are in the traditional Jewish book order, and although different from the Christian book order, it is easy to learn the sequence. This Bible is very easy to read through, Genesis to Revelation.
The One New Man Bible includes more than 4,000 footnotes and the massive one hundred seventy page Glossary describes various first century Jewish customs and explains Hebrew Scriptures, such as Leviticus 14, which on the surface is about cleansing a leper, but has a much deeper meaning.
Many Jewish sources were studied to bring the Scriptures to life, including many modern as well as ancient Jewish commentaries. Those studies bring real depth to the subjects in the Glossary, but even more importantly they give insight into the thinking of the New Testament authors, the Apostles, and especially Y’shua. It is important for those of us reading in the twenty-first century to understand what a word or expression meant to those who wrote the passages in Bible times.
This translation has as its goal to be a very readable text that flows from one book to another while preserving much of the Jewish flavour, especially the Jewishness of Y’shua, and much of the power in the Hebrew and Greek expressions.
