Jewish New Testament Commentary: A Companion Volume to the Jewish New Testament
The New Testament is a Jewish book, written by Jews, initially for Jews. Its central figure was a Jew. His followers were all Jews; yet no translation--except this one--really communicates its original, essential Jewishness. Uses neutral terms and Hebrew names. Highlights Jewish features and Jewish references. Corrects mistranslations from an anti-Jewish theological basis. Freshly rendered into English using the Greek texts, this is a must for learning about first-century faith.

Unique One Volume New Testament CommentaryUser Review - Christianbook.com
I normally avoid one-volume commentaries because they typically are not very insightful overall. If you have a good study Bible, these tend to be a good starting place for deeper study. However, there are exceptions to the rule and the Jewish New Testament Commentary is one of them. David Stern is a Messianic Jew and has dedicated his life to helping Christians understand the Jewish roots of their faith/Bible. This work is essentially a companion piece to The Complete Jewish Bible and I would also recommend reading that translation. As a one-volume commentary, it’s only going to get you so far with charts, maps, exegesis etc. However, with it being a commentary focused in on helping you see how the New Testament is firmly rooted in the Jewish faith, it will do wonders for you. Stern breaks down the 27 New Testament books and focuses on the various Jewish aspects to them – things like ancient cultural practices, Old Testament citations, as well as various theological issues. Many modern Christians are unaware or quick to forget how deeply Jewish the first century Church was and this is a very useful aid in bringing this fact to light.

In my current theological reading I have included readings from the Talmud, along with the Jewish New Testament and Jewish New Testament Commentary. For a long time the brand of Protestantism I had been taught for most of my life did not make sense because it was replacement theology. The Jewish New Testament and Commentary has helped to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge about the Jewish view of the Messiah and Jesus as the Messiah. I can't say enough good things about this series.
