Introducing an exciting volume featuring the Messianic Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) and the newly-updated (2011) New International Version (NIV), side-by-side.
For the first time, readers who seek to compare the Evangelical Christian and Messianic Jewish Bibles need not buy them separately. The CJB and the 2011 NIV version may both be read in this one-of-a-kind parallel Bible. Bible study and small group study participants will enjoy the particular characteristics of both translations.
The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is the only English translation that is fully Jewish in its style and presentation of both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. Making no distinction between these major divisions of the Bible, it makes plain the Jewish historical and cultural background of the text; features the original Hebrew names for people, places, and concepts; and focuses on Messianic prophecy. Also included are the traditional weekly and holiday synagogue readings.
The New International Version (NIV) is the world's most popular modern English Bible. The NIV articulates God's unchanging Word by reproducing, as closely as possible, the reading experience of the original audience, providing the optimum combination of transparency to the original documents and clear communication of their original meaning. Features the text of the 2011 update.
