What Makes This Bible Unique?

Messiah in Hebrew, Christ in Greek and Anointed in English.  The one Christians call Jesus Christ would be better understood as Jesus the Anointed.

Aside from this Bible Project being created by Rabbis and Scholars working together from across the Jewish and Christian faith spectrums, we will have also have focus features along with special added features.

Focus Features

Our Bible commentary will be looking at Messianic Prophecy through the lens of time.

The Hebrew Scriptures were not written or compiled in a vacuum.  It was composed over several centuries.  No one knows exactly how long a time frame.

However, did you ever wonder what the Hebrews were thinking when Moses said that YHVH will send you another prophet like me from among your own brothers?  Devarim (Deuteronomy) 18:15  

Was this Messianic in their eyes?  Or might they be thinking, “Oh, is he speaking of Joshua?” 

What did King David or the prophet Isaiah think when they read these words of Deuteronomy 18:15, hundreds of years later?  And what about Daniel or Ezekiel in Exile, or even the 12 disciples as they walked with Yeshua (Jesus) — how did they view Moses words?  “YHVH will send you another prophet like me from among your own brothers.”

We will look at each prophecy and how it was viewed by the sages and the people of the day when it was written — as well as by Jewish scholars and rabbis throughout history  to the present.

Our Commentary will examine how the idea of a Messiah developed in the mind of the Hebrews from the time Moses anointed Aaron the first High Priest, to Samuel anointing Saul as the first King of Israel! 

How did the thoughts and ideas of these anointed priests and kings evolve into the Messiah son of Joseph and Messiah son of David in Judaism — and then into Messiah Yeshua, son of God in Christianity?
