This upgrade is offered to users who previously purchased the First Edition of The Jewish Study Bible Notes (JSB). Users who purchase this upgrade will receive the Second Edition of The Jewish Study Bible Notes (Jewish SB-2). Add this upgrade product to the shopping cart like any other product.

Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.

First published in 2004, The Jewish Study Bible is a landmark, one-volume resource tailored especially for the needs of students of the Hebrew Bible. It has won acclaim from readers in all religious traditions.

The Jewish Study Bible contains explanatory notes (based on the celebrated Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation), introductory materials, and essays by leading biblical scholars on virtually every aspect of the text, the world in which it was written, its interpretation, and its role in Jewish life. The quality of scholarship, easy-to-navigate format, and vibrant supplementary features bring the ancient text to life.

This second edition includes revised annotations for nearly the entire Bible, as well as forty new and updated essays on many of the issues in Jewish interpretation, Jewish worship in the biblical and post-biblical periods, and the influence of the Hebrew Bible in the ancient world.

The Jewish Study Bible, Second Edition, is an essential resource for anyone interested in the Hebrew Bible.

Note: While the print version of The Jewish Study Bible (2nd Edition) contains the Jewish Publication Society TANAKH text, this module does not include the actual biblical text.  It contains all the Introductions, Indexes, and Notes of the printed version. The Bible Study Notes of this module can be linked to run in parallel with any Accordance Bible translation.

In the days of Christian book shops, i used to enjoy browsing and was really pleased when i discovered this and bought it immediately. I then got the Jewish Annotated nt. This was pre accordance for me. For many years my Jewish study Bible and then the Jewish Annotated New Testament have been my go to study bibles along with the esv. I then got them as electronic versions in accordance as soon as they were released.

I havent had enough time to spend comparing the notes but The number of essays has been substantially increased and those i have read are of the typical excellent quality.

This is a significant revision and well worth getting. According to the preface in the second version of the jps:

"The first edition ... Many readers found the essays to be an extremely valuable resource for learning about the world of the Bible, the history of Jewish Bible study, and the methods of modern scholarship. We received so many positive reactions to the essay section that we thought it ...

"The first edition ... Many readers found the essays to be an extremely valuable resource for learning about the world of the Bible, the history of Jewish Bible study, and the methods of modern scholarship. We received so many positive reactions to the essay section that we thought it would be useful to augment it substantially, offering even more background on a wider variety of topics.

But the essays are not the only new feature of this edition. Biblical scholarship is dynamic and ever-changing. We have therefore encouraged all the original contributors of both annotations and essays to revise their work; and in some cases, we sought new annotators to reflect more recent scholarship and to include more women and Israeli scholars. Thus, this volume is over one-third new."

I am looking forward to spending more time with it and one day i may even be able to compare the notes from both 1st and 2nd versions on the same screen on my ipad along with the jps text.

If you are coming to this review from the upgrade page, then you already know how good the 1st version is. If you were getting the second version in hard copy, you would have to pay full price againso the fact that you have an upgrade price is an added benefit.
