This is the best translation of the Scriptures i've read!
on 25 April 1999
The Complete Jewish Bible undoubtedly is the best translation i've ever read! I've studied Hebrew and Greek, and believe that Stern gives fresh insights to the true, lost Jewishness of the Gospel! His insights are unique, and picks up the gap of the Jewishness of the Gospel, where even the best of the Christian translations fail at this! He offers both Hebrew/English, English/Hebrew glosseries at the back of the Bible, so someone unfamiliar with Hebrew can read the Bible, and learn Hebrew vocabulary at the same time. The translation is in enjoyable modern English, but there are inserted Hebrew words throughout the text This is a great devotional Bible, and I would definately say that if the NIV and KJV are considered as Authoritative, then this Bible, surely ought to be! The CJB corrects anti-Jewish translational errors which are in the KJV. This Bible shows clearly how Yeshua is the promised Jewish Moshaich. My mother is a fairly new Jewish believer in Yeshua Ha Moshiach, and this translation has inspired her faith unlike the NASB she had before! From the CJB, every Jewish person ought to be able to see that Yeshua is in harmony with the Tanakh("Old Testament"). Thus, this is a great witnessing tool! I firmly believe that the Ruach Ha Kodesh("The Holy Spirit)",has inspired Mr. Stern to make this translation! Most Messianic Jews use this translation!
