The JPS Torah Commentary series guides readers through the words and ideas of the Torah. Each volume is the work of a scholar who stands at the pinnacle of his field.
Every page contains the complete traditional Hebrew text, with cantillation notes, the JPS translation of the Holy Scriptures, aliyot breaks, Masoretic notes, and commentary by a distinguished Hebrew Bible scholar, integrating classical and modern sources. Each volume also contains supplementary essays that elaborate upon key words and themes, a glossary of commentators and sources, extensive bibliographic notes, and maps.
Michael WLakewood, CAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Highly recommended scholarly workOctober 19, 2012Michael WLakewood, CAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The author is a top-tier scholar. His commentary sets the Hebrew text alongside an English translation, with erudite, Jewish-slanted commentary. The book is technical, a tool rather than a homiletical work. It is definitely a must-have for serious Bible scholars, students, and ministers: the 77 excursuses alone are worth the price. It is not reommended for laypeople.
