By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME on 19 Dec. 2005
Format: Imitation Leather
The Tanakh, an edition of the Holy Scriptures of Judaism, put out by the Jewish Publication Society (JPS), now has a dual-language edition (Hebrew and English), which is incredibly useful for scripture study.
The word Tanakh consists of the first letters of the words denoting the three sections of the text: the Torah (the Law), consisting of the first five books; the Nevi'im (the Prophets), which includes major and minor prophets, as well as some of the history books; and the Kethuvim (the Writings), which consists of poetry, wisdom literature, stories and eschatological literature, and some further history books.
The Tanakh is not simply a new translation of the Christian Old Testament. Indeed, most Christian readers would be surprised at the differences inherent in the Tanakh. For one thing, the ordering of the books in the Tanakh is different from the order in the Christian Old Testament. The intent behind the differing order demonstrates one of the key differences in focus of Judaism and Christianity. The ordering of the Old Testament, with the minor prophets, and their call to repentance and future deliverance of the people of Israel by God, is anticipatory of the Messianic age, and hence provide a `run-up' to the New Testament. Obviously, Judaism does not have the same focus toward Jesus. Thus, the conclusion of the Tanakh leads to the return from exile, the restoration of the people of Israel to the land of promise, and the return of the worship of God to the appointed place, the Temple.
Also, the chapter/verse division is somewhat different. This can be seen in side-by-side comparison with other English Bible translations, but also becomes apparent in comparison with other Jewish editions.
'English translations usually list thirty-nine books of the Bible.

This version of the Tanakhn has the Hebrew and English versions side by side. As someone who is VERY slowly trying to learn Hebrew I have found this to be really helpful. Thye book is heavy and large, type clear and easy to read.

THe quality is very good, it is a bit stiff at first but after time it begins to settle, although it will never be supple. The font size is great, and the layout of English and Hebrew has been done really. well. I am learning Hebrew and and diving into this frequently.

the latest 1999 version Just in English. The real bonus is the notes written beside the reference and the notes at the head of the particular book extremely essential to any Tanakh scholar.

The text is crisp and clear, and the Hebrew script is easy to follow alongside the English translation. And it's not too big to carry around with you.

This is an excellent presentation of the Hebrew bible with its translation. The translation is accurate and the Hebrew text is large enough to read.

thought it would have more notes for students, but they seemed to be lacking. Not what I really wanted, but good just the same
