Can I also recommend that you get the tagged jps to go along with the study bible notes.
Ps, is there any chance of getting the English translation of the modern Torah commentary tagged?

I know it is not what you are asking for but just wanted to point out the JPS Tanakh (Jewish Publication Society) with Strong's Numbers is available for anyone who was unaware. But I would love to have TMC Torah tied to strong's as well.

As I'm reading through the Bible I would like to get a better understanding of the text from a Jewish perspective. I recently had the opportunity to hear a Messianic Jew teach on the scriptures and I was captivated by his knowledge of the nuances of the original languages, the words, and how a Jew would interpret and understand them.
So, I would like to know what text might you recommend?
I'm with Matthew when he said, "If you don't have much experience with rabbinic literature, I'm not sure I would recommend diving into texts such as the Mishnah, Bavli (Babylonian Talmud), or Yerushalmi (Jerusalem Talmud) without some preliminary study."
For such a study, I would recommend Back to the Sources: Reading the Classic Jewish Texts. The First Complete Modern Guide to the Great Books of the Jewish Tradition: What They Are and How to Read Them, ed. by Barry W. Holtz.
It includes chapters on the Bible, Talmud, Midrash, Medieval Bible Commentaries, Medieval Jewish Philosophy, Kabbalistic Texts, Teachings of the Hasidic Masters, and Prayer and the Prayerbook.

I would highly recommend Trude-Weiss Rosmarin's Judaism and Christianity: The Differences. She skillfully analyzes and deftly addresses topics like miracles, sin and atonement, faith versus law, Free Will versus Original Sin, asceticism, and the place of the founder of Christianity in Jewish thinking. The book is arranged by subject matter which makes it very readable.
