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 related term “New Covenant,” which is sometimes substituted for these texts, is certainly ‘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, might 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 not being of great offense to the Jewish people in the world today.
