The Bible is more than just a book. It’s the spoken Word of God. It is the textbook of the soul that answers the deepest fundamental questions of life; as how things came to be, why we were created, why the world has fallen into sin and how God brought salvation through the suffering, death, and resurrection of the righteous Son of David, Messiah Yeshua. The goal of the New Jerusalem Version is to make the personal name of God known to English-speaking people from all around the world, and to help the reader to rediscover the Hebrew roots of the Bible.
But now Messiah has been raised from the dead; he became the firstfruits of those who are asleep.
— I Corinthians 15:20
