Have you ever found the New Testament hard to understand?

Do you appreciate the King James Bible, but go crazy trying to comprehend some of its Elizabethan English?

Have you been frustrated by commentaries limited by the writer’s denominational beliefs and prejudices?

Have you ever wished you knew what Paul was really saying?

Have you ever wished you knew what Paul was really saying?

The Resurrection Life  Study Bible takes the traditional King James text of the New Testament and aligns it side by side with a bold new paraphrase, and includes detailed commentary notes to bring out the historical background and Jewish context of the New Testament and its writings, clarifying hosts of the more difficult-to-understand verses such as:

Matt. 5:48 KJV text: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Matt. 5:48 paraphrase: By doing these things I've told you, you will demonstrate the attributes of your Father in heaven, and thus be perfect as He is perfect!

Gal. 2:19, KJV text: For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.

Gal. 2:19 paraphrase: For the Law doomed and slew me (despite my own zealous observance of it). But it did so in order that, once I realized I was dead through it, I could now also consider it dead (so far as my obligations to it were concerned), and by that find a true life in God (which the Law simply could not provide to me on its own because of my own human weakness).

2 Cor. 10:15-16 KJV text: Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,

To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.

2 Cor. 10:15-16 paraphrase: So we don’t boast beyond what is proper--meaning, we won’t take credit for other men’s work (as some seem to be doing in our case). But we have confidence that, when your (understanding) is increased, we will be more respected and heeded in your eyes, and will then have proper respect in your area of the world. Then we can go on to preach the Gospel in regions beyond you where it is unknown, rather than following in the footsteps of other men and milking their work.

Romans 3:31, KJV text: Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Romans 3:31 paraphrase: But am I saying that we make void the authority and warnings of the Torah through faith? God forbid! Rather, through faith, we uphold and establish what the Torah tries, yet fails to do despite its threats of judgment: Make men holy before God.


Written from a solid evangelical perspective that nevertheless incorporates an understanding of the Jewishness of the Scriptural teachings--but without crossing the line into the heresies of some modern Jewish-Christian commentators who still misunderstand Paul's view of the Torah--the work includes:

The New Testament books* with KJV and paraphrase.

A critically important article that explains who and what the Pharisees were, and their influence over the events in the Gospels and Acts. This article is absolutely critical for any student of the New Testament! If you do not have an understanding of the Pharisee movement in the time of Christ, you will never have a full grasp of incidents recorded in the Gospels and in the ministry of Paul.

The ultimate article on the Unforgivable Sin. If you, or someone you know, has struggled with this issue, they absolutely must read this!

An article on overcoming anger at God. Bitterness at God over life's circumstances haunts many people. This article helps to work through it and return to wholeness.

An article on what the devil is capable of doing. This is a Bible-based list of powers and abilities of the devil and his demons.

An article answering typical Jewish objections to Christian beliefs.

An article on the Sabbath, confronting and dealing with Sabbatarian misconceptions and false teachings.

A critically important article on Abraham as our paradigm for justification.

An article on how  and why the Gospel of Grace is misunderstood and rejected by the Children of the Flesh.

This is also places the New Testament epistles in their correct chronological order, starting with Galatians instead of Romans, which was written several years later.

They do not come signed by the author unless requested.

So whether one is a lay person or theologian, Catholic, Protestant, or Messianic, there is a wealth of information in this exciting new version of the New Testament.
