Are simple, easily digestible yes-or-no articles and definition/exposition articles a more powerful tool than discussion articles? The wiki section of this site has slowly changed focus. Although I would still like to, and will still (over time) essentially index the Q&A from channels like Tenak Talk for easy reference, the focus has shifted more towards […]

By his stripes we are healed
What does it mean, “By his stripes we are healed”? Here we read form Isaiah 53: 4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded as for our transgressions, He was bruised as for our iniquities: The chastisement […]
Did Jesus Sin?
Did Jesus Sin? And if he did, did he ask for forgiveness for his sins? Did he even bring a sacrifice? A hallmark of the Law is that if one sins one must ask for repentance. (see: articles). Therefore, in order for Jesus to have fulfilled the law he must have asked for repentance iff […]
Why the KJV?
I had a conversation with a Rabbi a while back on the source text for the NSV. He advised me not to use the KJV. I actually agreed with him, it would be better and easier not to use the KJV as a source. However, I wanted to retain the feeling of the KJV as […]
Rashi is in!
The Public Domain Rashi commentary “Sefaria Community Edition” has now been added; from this point forward it will be known as the “NSV” edition. This is because we may make changes to the commentary based on other (Public Domain) versions of Rashi, or to modify the language to comport with our translation (since many passages […]

NSV Phase 3 (Part 2)
I’m going to take a bit of a break from discord, per-se, and resume work on the site. In particular I will resume work on the NSV bible, phase 3. In general phase 3 needs to be wrapped up so I can start on Phase 4 which will be new testament commentary. In general this […]
John Wesley’s Explanatory Notes
As it turns out, John Wesley’s Explanatory Notes (i.e. from the Wesley Study Bible, classic studylight or studylight or even biblestudytools) is in the Public Domain. This might be useful to use as a reference to help explain points for credibility’s sake; we will certainly reference some of it. Actually most of it looks useless. […]

Notes on Rashi: Rosenbaum-Silbermann to SCE
I’ve come to realize how the Rosenbaum-Silbermann text was updated by the SCE. It appears as if the SCE only includes the updates made to the RS Text. Therefore the process of inclusion will be to incorporate the Rosenbaum-Silbermann text and then go back and copy-0verwrite the SCE.
