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 usage and the term not being of offense to the Jewish people in the world today.
