Recent Review of The Good News of Messiah:
After reading the Hebrew Roots Messianic New Testament third edition of The Good News of Messiah by Daniel Gregg, I waited in excited anticipation for the arrival of the planned fourth edition. And I wasn’t disappointed. The fourth edition is a stunning and illuminating translation of the New Testament containing an exacting academic commentary that leaves no stone unturned.
Daniel Gregg’s translation exposes false doctrine in the church at large. For years I had been taught wrongly that the doctrine of ‘Justification’ meant ‘Just as if you had never sinned’. Gregg’s translation also exposes the resultant false doctrine of acquittal by instantaneous imputed righteousness rather than the correct doctrine of guilty but pardoned by undeserved mercy followed by future imputed righteousness to the faithful obedient.
Crucial and also revolutionary to mainstream church teaching is Gregg’s translation of the Greek word for ‘faith’ as meaning to be actively confirming faithfulness by a trust and hope in God that needs to be coupled with obedience to God’s Law.
It was this confirmation, coupled with what for me was the jewel of Gregg’s work, namely, the revelation that Jesus was raised on ‘mia ton sabbaton’, the first of the Sabbaths, ie, the first weekly Sabbath after Passover (the ‘second first Sabbath’ of Luke 6:1), that liberated me to unreservedly rejoice in the seventh day Sabbath and the Feasts of the LORD.
In conclusion, after reading Daniel Gregg’s The Good News of Messiah, I felt spiritually robbed by years of incorrect church teaching and wonderfully liberated to follow and worship God as He prescribes in scripture. I would thoroughly recommend The Good News of Messiah to all who are earnestly seeking the whole Truth.
