oldmanchubbAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Unique One Volume New Testament CommentaryNovember 27, 2012oldmanchubbAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I normally avoid one-volume commentaries because they typically are not very insightful overall. If you have a good study Bible, these tend to be a good starting place for deeper study. However, there are exceptions to the rule and the Jewish New Testament Commentary is one of them. David Stern is a Messianic Jew and has dedicated his life to helping Christians understand the Jewish roots of their faith/Bible.
This work is essentially a companion piece to The Complete Jewish Bible and I would also recommend reading that translation. As a one-volume commentary, it's only going to get you so far with charts, maps, exegesis etc. However, with it being a commentary focused in on helping you see how the New Testament is firmly rooted in the Jewish faith, it will do wonders for you. Stern breaks down the 27 New Testament books and focuses on the various Jewish aspects to them - things like ancient cultural practices, Old Testament citations, as well as various theological issues. Many modern Christians are unaware or quick to forget how deeply Jewish the first century Church was and this is a very useful aid in bringing this fact to light.

Henry5 Stars Out Of 5April 5, 2011HenryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The JNTC is very good because it clears up so much of the Greek mis-interpretation of scriptures. We have the truth told by people that have the knowledge of the true Hebrew culture in the days of Yeshua or Yahusha. The Greek language doesn't translate the Hebrew idioms right.
It is wrong that Christianity hasn't made an effort to translate the truth of the Hebrew culture by the truth that the Old Teatament granted to mankind. That is what pagans are good for and that is to hide the truth for Satan.
