    1. Personal theory of the Tanakh, or what Christian s call The Old Testament whether intentionally or not, the Tanakh charts the ever growing distance between man and God First God creates the universe and exists in perfect harmony with man then man breaks the pact of that union throughout his wanderings, man is continually reconnected to God through a series of covenants meant to reestablish that original union but time and again man breaks those covenants, to the point where God becomes and rem [...]




    2. The first time I read a version of the bible from cover to cover was during the last year at Grinnell College while I was taking Chaplain Dennis Haas two semester sequence on the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures The text chosen was the academic edition of The Jerusalem Bible, a weighty tome I d take to bed with me for an hour of so of reading pretty much every night until it was finished Before bedtime on some nights, however, I did oral readings of another version of the bible, this that of the [...]


    3. Overall I like this version although the font is a bit on the small side particularly the footnotes which must be all of a 2 or 3 pt fontbut for the roughly 13 this is an affordable and very readable translation from the original Hebrew It should be noted, the translate is a modern english translation rather than old english translation the taking the translation from Hebrew rather than Greek or Arabic this is a decidely different tone Although still early in my reading, there are parts which I [...]


    4. Genesis The Creation StorySo the world was created, and God rested on the 7th day, and so should we all God says, over and over, even saying in Exodus those who don t should be killed Can t figure out just when Sabbath is though Then there is another version of creation in the same Book After that it s mostly a bunch of begots, these are very proliferate people.Exodus The Jews exit Egypt, and wonder why Moses is the good guy He deals with the Pharoah then guides the Jews out of Egypt And, much o [...]


    5. The Tanakh, also contemptibly denominated, The Old Testament, is a literary masterpiece that has influenced humankind, directly or indirectly, for good or ill, than any other single text in human history Yet I value this text not for its cultural, religious, or political influence, but strictly in terms of its literary quality Scholars with minds far brighter than mine have brooded over these immortal stories for centuries and by the end of their individual lives remain perplexed by the discove [...]


    6. I have finished reading the historical books of the Tanakh to get ready for the First Temple Era history section of my tour guides course Joshua, Judges, First and Second Samuel, First and Second Kings, and First and Second Chronicles It s a mighty interesting period, stretching out over around 500 years of our history, with some great characters, like Saul, Gideon, Deborah, David, Jezebel and It was a violent era like now , and the losing side in a conflict had their cities put to the sword, o [...]


    7. Some parts of this historical fiction are entertaining.These in particular are worth a read Ecclesiastes Pessimistic philosophy of ancient times A surprising addition to the collection, given its dark and quite blasphemous tone Kings Game of Thrones, biblical style Song of Songs A surprisingly refreshing collection of poetry dealing with love and romance between him her, without religious banter Book of Esther An entertaining farce comedy.Other worthy mentions Genesis Judges Samuel Book of Ruth


    8. This is an extremely clear translation of the difficult Hebrew into contemporary English It s a bit different than the Old Testament Christians are used to, as the Scriptures are not translated with an eye toward proving that Jesus Christ is the Messiah I would venture to say that, at least in today s English, and concerning how the Scriptures would have been read by the Hebrews of the Messianic Period, this is as close as one can get to that experience Note This follows the Masoretic Text as es [...]


    9. Giving 5 stars the stars only appear only on the fourth day of creation, mind you to the Hebrew Bible is a bit absurd So is , on this particular book Two random aspects of this absurdity is that the King James translation gets than 50000 ratings, and the Hebrew original less than 10 so far and that it is clearly absent from the Greatest Books Ever Written a list horrendous enough to merit plenty of divine mercy anyhow In brief this work by Anonymous is a good book.


    10. It s quite amazing for one raised as a Christian which I do not now consider myself to read the Jewish bible nor am I Jewish This Book is much user friendly than the Christian Book far easier to comprehend I was paralleling them both, side by side just looking into the differences is an enlightening lesson And Leviticus will boggle your mind.


    11. Not my favorite JPS translations It does a decent job getting at what the Hebrew is saying in modern language, but it sometimes sacrifices accuracy and definitely sacrifices the beauty of a lot of the poetry.


    12. An excellent resource for students Very easy to read and it has both the Hebrew and English side by side All of my teachers have been using this version of the Tanakh.



    13. Tanakh The Holy ScripturesThis is an amazing book that shows the entire history of the Jewish people It is called The Old Testament in the Christian faith, and tells the story of the Jews.The Tanakh is split up into 3 different parts The Torah The original Jewish narrative , The Prophets A book about prophets , and the Writings A book composed of well, writings.


    14. Regarded throughout the English speaking world as the standard English translation of the Holy Scriptures, the JPS TANAKH has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike The JPS TANAKH is an entirely original translation of the Holy Scriptures into contemporary English, based on the Masoretic the traditional Hebrew text It is the culmination of three decades of collaboration by academic scholars and rabbis, representing the three largest branches of organized Juda [...]


    15. This was a gift to me from my father when I made the decision that I one day wanted to convert to Judaism He knew how much I wanted to learn Hebrew, and how I had been struggling with trying to study with a Christian Bible, especially as he tripped over an NIV that I had thrown out of the living room door in frustration So, he got this for me and I love it, not just because it is my first Tanakh, but because of the support Da showed in buying it for me.Having the Hebrew and English side by side [...]


    16. Well, it seems funny to give anything less than five stars to the Bible The new translation by JPS which actually goes back to the 1960s is great for an idiomatic rendition in modern English of the Hebrew original, and of course it reflects the insights gained from modern archaeology and the study of ancient near eastern languages such as Ugaritic and Akkadian , which help us understand some otherwise obscure Hebrew words.And I used to be a big fan of idiomatic translations These days, I prefer [...]


    17. The maiden was very beautiful, a virgin whom no man had known She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came up The servant ran toward her and said, Please, let me sip a little water from your jar Drink, my lord, she said, and she quickly lowered her jar upon her hand and let him drink When she had let him drink his fill, she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they finish drinking Quickly emptying her jar into the trough, she ran back to the well to draw, and she drew for all h [...]


    18. The tanakh is an amazing read, well worth the time I put into it I ve read the whole of the torah, and then from Joshua through to Isaiah I ve read Ruth and some of the other later books out of order as well So not a cover to cover read, but I felt satisfied setting it aside at about 65% covered knowing I can always come back to it.For fellow Jews, if you haven t read Joshua, Kings, et al, please do This tells the full stories of Samson, David, and Solomon, three figures it seems a shame not to [...]


    19. I m no expert when it comes to bible translation, but I must say that this edition us the best one I ve ever read, far than the old testament section found in the traditional Christian bible technically I m Jewish, so that s natural anyway reading this brings an insightful new approach towards understanding Jewish theology and the great inner workings if Jewish philosophy if I were to bind myself to any kind if religious dogmatism in my life it will undoubtingly be Judaism.


    20. Read Genesis Exodus Numbers 20 Leviticus 11, 18 20 Deuteronomy Samuel I, II Kings I, 1 4 Psalms 1, 8, 14, 19, 22, 23, 42, 46, 51, 90, 121, 122, 126, 130, 131, 137, 139, 148 Amos Jonah Isaiah 40 55 Job.Genesis, Exodus, Samuel Kings, Psalms, Jonah, and Job were all awesome Can t wait to read the New Testament.Read Ecclesiastes for myself it was perhaps even better than Job and concise.


    21. Honestly, although a lot of the stories in the Tanakh Old Testament are very interesting especially from a theological viewpoint , there is also a lot of boring filler We did not need the details of how to build the Tabernacle or how many different members there were from each tribe, etc Still, it s worth a read, as long as you realize how long it will take you to read it and actually attempt to process it all.


    22. If you must read the Hebrew Scriptures, I reccomend this translation It is the approved academic translation of the Jewish Publication Society It s got the Old Testement along with the rest of the core Hebrew texts that got cut out of the Bible Interesting what they cut There are so many funny laws what constitutes accidental deflowering , etc Also good stories that have been neglected.


    23. Unfortunately I can give this pocket edition of the Tanakh only one star They have managed to put two Bibles into one small 2000 page book, which is an achievement The book looks good and feels good So that s the good part To do this, however, they made the letters so small that the Hebrew is unreadable unless you are an eagle or a superhero whose superpower is the ability to read very small letters This, to me at least, renders this edition useless.


    24. The newest JPS translation of the Tanach has two wonderful forwards explaining the various translations and texts used to verify the translations The maps in the back are also nice, though I found myself wishing for a complete map of the Abrahamic period.Love, ShiraDestinie MEOW Date Saturday, May 18 12014 H.E Holocene Era


    25. Finally finished Okay, I still need to read Second Chronicles, i.e Kings The Remake As an ex English major, I have to say that this was a satisfying slog that provided retrospective context for so many other books And it was really satisfying to carry around and dramatically thump onto tables.


    26. I read this for a literature class in college It is the first 5 books of the Bible We also read The Epic of Gilgamesh to examine how the two books are similar Looking into the Bible as literature makes reading it enjoyable and interesting I recommend reading it as part of a class so someone can illustrate the literary elements and compare it to other literature of the day.


    27. It feels silly to review the Tanakh but this translation is just so much better and the side by side Hebrew English layout is readable than anything I ve ever seen before One problem is that the commentary is very minimal, at least in the light softcover edition I have, so you need another source for that.
