    The Old Testament is a work by David H. Stern, an Israel-based Messianic Jewish theologian. Published in 1998 by Jewish New Testament Publications.

    While I understand the purpose and see a place for it, I would not recommend it for serious Bible study.

    We have way too many translations ... I'm going back to just one ... KJV and an interlinear. When I look back on all the needless debate there has been by people using multiple modern translations to defend reprehensible false doctrines it breaks my heart.

    Trust man to make an educated translation of scripture? We know what is in man and it is not good.

    Pray and study ...

    I agree with problems with too many translations. I agree many are false doctrine altered or biased. But, I do not agree that is a reason to only use the KJV. Just dismissing all versions is also a mistake.

    Well, in my history far more false doctrine have used the KJV to defend and create them. So many are not able to read the archaic English and understand it. Here are some problems with it.

    I have spent far too much time having to pull the Hebrew and Greek to show people what they think is said, and too often what is said, is inaccurate.

    Is it a Bible? Yes. Is it from the Catholic compiled Textus Receptus? Yes. Does it have Catholic doctrine in it? Yes. Is it better than some other versions out there? Yes.

    For me, I use the NIV, NASB and an Interlinear. Those two translations are held, by linquist, as the most accurate versions. They used older and more accurate manuscript sources than the KJV authors did.

    It is sad they created the gender neurtral 2011 NIV. What a disappointment I will never use.

    I am saying there is no escaping controversy when it comes to versions. Keep your interlinear nearby. :crazy:

    I only reason I post using it is because it is very different, I would never suggest to read this translation alone but do comparative by using it which is why I post form it.

    I think each time I retread the bible God reveals more I discover how I was wrong but was still guided by the Holy Spirit. I saw another post by Jewish friends how they deny JC. But they no longer sacrifice to God and have no proper temple I wonder how they explain this ?

    With very non literal figurative explanations.
