The first Christians were Jews, and Christianity has its roots in the religion of God’s chosen and called out people. Jesus’s death and resurrection was not the beginning of a new religion but the fulfillment of the covenant God made with his people. Yet most Bible translations sacrifice the deep connection between the Jewish roots of our faith and the grafted-in Gentile branches, using imprecise English terms rather than Hebrew terms that encompass a fuller meaning.
The Tree of Life Version (TLV) is a new Bible translation, produced by the Messianic Jewish Family Bible Society. It seeks to highlight the rich Hebrew roots of the Christian faith through special features such as:
- using the Hebrew name of Jesus ‘Yeshua’
- following the Jewish order of Old Testament books
- reverence for the four-letter unspoken name of God
- Hebrew transliterated terms, such as shalom, shofar, and shabbat
- and more!
