The Newer Testament - Hear What They Heard
By Dr. Brad H. Young
The Newer Testament is a new translation of the Bible highlighting the Jewish roots of Christianity. Rather than employing the standard translation technique of simply selecting the most appropriate English word for the Greek, the Newer Testament asks the question, “What is the Hebrew thought and wording underpinning the Greek text?” Using this method, the text reconstructs the Hebrew sources, language and mindset behind the early church and its foundational documents.
Readers will now hear what first century listeners in ancient Israel would have heard because the translation brings to light the Jewish cultural, linguistic and spiritual setting of Jesus as a Jew.
