New Testament Commentaries

The term “New Testament” originated outside of the framework of Jewish/Torah spirituality. It reflected a view of “superiority” over the Tanakh. The more recently applied term, “New Covenant,” sometimes substituted for these texts, may sound ‘Judaic’ but holds a very different meaning in Jewish and Christian circles. Assigning a Hebrew translation of “Brit HaDasha,” for the NT as some do, could be seen as an acceptance of the term and its associated non-Judaic ideas.

Thus, for academic reasons, we’ve chosen to keep the term, “New Testament,” due to its common/academic usage and the term not being of offense to the Jewish people in the world today. These commentaries are not in any way reflective of Christian (or other non-Jewish) beliefs. Hundreds of citations from oral Torah are provided throughout.
