Bibles That We Recommend


We strongly encourage using a "literal translation" also known as a "word for word translation" because it conveys what The Heavenly Father is saying rather than man's interpretation of thoughts on what The Heavenly Father is saying.
A serious Bible student really needs to have a literal translation also knows as a word for word translation which is what you'll find below.
Please note that we do not endorse the doctrines, theologies or Biblical stances of these publishers.

The Scriptures






"The Tree of Life Version"

The Tree of Life Version is a top notch literal translation with the exception of the Jewish un-scriptural tradition of the forbidding of pronouncing The Heavenly Father's Sacred Covenant Name
YHWH, and replacing it with Adonai.
It still uses the common titles God, and Lord which can bridge the gap between Christians, and Messianic / Hebrew Roots believers.
Elohim is used in some places.
This version uses the correct form of Messiah's name which is Yeshua which is a contraction of Yehoshua.
Both Christian, and Scholars worked together on this translation.
It reads easy, and has been compared to the NASB for it's accuracy.
