As a Christian, I’ve been reading the Jewish Annotated New Testament and it’s amazing.

So I’m a Christian and I already had the Jewish Study Bible, also an excellent scholarly resource, albeit containing solely the Hebrew Bible JPS translation, the associated commentary, and essays.

As it turns out, there’s also a Jewish Annotated New Testament, with the same publisher (Oxford University Press), and it is a tremendous academic work. It has a NRSV translation of the Greek Bible with the associated commentary from Jewish scholars, and many essays after the main text that detail Jewish responses to and interpretations of Jesus and the Greek scriptures across the millenia, as well as provide an overview of early Christianity and its Jewish origins.

Let it be known that I do not intend to proselytize in any manner here! I simply came to admire this important work. So much of the discussion about Greek scriptures is dominated by Christians, so to read the incredible breadth and depth of scholarly Jewish thought on these scriptures is phenomenal. God bless.
