Most first Christians were Jews, and Christianity has roots in the religion of God's chosen people. Jesus's death and resurrection was not the beginning of a new religion but the fulfillment of covenant promises God made with His people. Yet most Bible translations sacrifice the deep connection between the Jewish roots of our faith and grafted-in Gentile branches, using imprecise English terms rather than Hebrew terms that encompass a fuller meaning. The Tree of Life Version (TLV) is a new Bible translation, produced by the Messianic Jewish Family Bible Society, which highlights the rich Hebrew roots of the Christian faith by restoring:
- The Jewish order of the books of the Old Testament
- The Jewish name of the Messiah, Yeshua
- Reverence for the four-letter unspoken name of God
- Hebrew transliterated terms, such as shalom, shofar, and shabbat
- Key names, such as Miriam for Mary
TLV translation team carefully translated the Greek and Hebrew to render a translation that is accurate, readable, reverential, and true to the worldview that brings together Jewish and Gentile people in Messiah, Yeshua. The result is a unique Bible that is a joy to experience.

amber2 Stars Out Of 5Tree of Life Version Holy ScripturesMarch 12, 2018amberQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0It is a well designed bible. Easy flow and reading. The leather is a bit flimsey though, not as solid as other bibles. Designed by Messianic Community. Reads like a Messianic version of a paraphrased bible. It is more like a book than a study material. Would i read it? Yes. Would i use it for study? No. Lacks Scholastic references.

Mattman5 Stars Out Of 5Great TranslationMarch 18, 2017MattmanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Tree of Life Version is a wonderful translation that is a little bit more Jewish. It is put together by a Messianic Jewish Society and it follows the word-for-word ideal, but is still readable. It adds new life to the text as it does not fall flat in places that I expected. The use of Adonai gives The Lord/God a name and forces you to say it as three syllables as unfortunately, Lord and God often become lost in the text when someone reads the Bible as much as I do. They took out the usage of Yahweh as Israel would never say the name out of such reverence. They use many Jewish words all throughout and it kind of gives certain passages more meaning. They have translated the name of Jesus from the Latin spelling to the Jewish spelling of Yeshua.
To me it is not a primary translation, but one that I like to keep nearby as a version to read when I need something fresh. I would not try teaching from it as many people might feel a little uncomfortable hearing some of the names of God used as most Americans are not used to hearing them.
My hangup with this particular book itself is the pages and the font. I wouldn't call it unreadable as it isn't microscopic, but the font style of many Bibles has become similar and seems slightly elongated. The pages are super thin and bleached white. I use a lot of light to read and it practically blinds me with the reflection. Most Bibles are constructed this way as it is cheaper. I would always be willing to pay extra for better font that is a good style and size and for thicker cream colored pages that don't blind people from reading. But for the price, I can't ask for much more than good text.
