ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR
David H. Stern was born in Los Angeles in 1935, the great-grandson of two of the city's first twenty Jews. He earned a Ph.D. in economics at Princeton University and was a professor at UCLA, mountain-climber, co-author of a book on surfing, and owner of health-food stores.
In 1972, he came to believe in Yeshua as the Messiah, after which he received a Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary and did graduate work at the University of Judaism. Dr. Stern taught Fuller Theological Seminary's first course in "Judaism and Christianity," organized Messianic Jewish conferences and leaders' meetings, and was an officer of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America.
Dr. Stern is the author of Messianic Jewish Manifesto, which outlines the destiny, identity, history, theology and program of today's Messianic Jewish movement. He also wrote Restoring the Jewishness of the Gospel: A Message for Christians. It consists of excerpts from the former book selected for Christians to whom the Jewishness of the Gospel is an unfamiliar idea.
His Jewish New Testament, which has been incorporated into the Complete Jewish Bible, is the basis for its companion volume, the Jewish New Testament Commentary. This book discusses Jewish issues raised in the New Testament -- questions Jews have about Yeshua, the New Testament and Christianity; questions Christians have
about Judaism and the Jewish roots of their faith; and questions Messianic Jews have about their own identity and role.
