FIFTY PAGE INTRODUCTION
The introduction to the HRV is almost a book in itself. This introduction is an expansion of the introduction to the HRV New Testament. The introduction documents the Hebrew and Aramaic origin of the "New Testament" books, explains the Hebrew and Aramaic source texts and where they are located today. The introduction also documents the original manuscript order of the "New Testament" books. The HRV introduction also explains the various witnesses to the text of the Tanak ("Old Testament") including the Masoretic Text, the Samaritan Pentateuch, Dead Sea Scrolls, Peshitta Aramaic Tanak, Aramaic Targums and Greek LXX. The introduction also documents the Massorah (marginal notes to the Masoretic Text manuscripts) which indicate scribal revisions in the text such as 134 places where these marginal notes indicate the scribes revised YHWH to ADONAI.
THOUSANDS OF FOOTNOTES
The HRV contains thousands of footnotes. In the Tanak portion these footnotes indicate alternate readings from various witnesses including the alternate readings given in the Masorah (marginal notes to the Masoretic Text) such as the 134 places where the Masorah indicates the scribes had revised YHWH to ADONAI. In the NT portion the HRV footnotes indicate places where the NT has quoted or cited the Tanak, alternate readings from various versions including marginal notes to some Greek manuscripts referring to alternate readings found in the Judaikon (Jewish Version). These footnotes also indicate places where the Greek translator appears to have misunderstood an ambiguous Hebrew/Aramaic word, or misread a word as another word of similar appearance, and wordplays in the Hebrew or Aramaic.
THE HRV TANAK PORTION
The "Old Testament" portion is called the "Tanak". This portion of the HRV is a Messianic Sacred Name translation from the original Hebrew and Aramaic (some small portions of the Tanak, such as a large portion of Daniel, are Aramaic). The books of the Tanak are in the original manuscript order and divided into three sections: The Torah (Law); The Nevi'im (Prophets); The Ketuvim (Writings).
THE HRV KETUVIM NETZARIM PORTION
The "New Testament" portion is titled "The Ketuvim Netzarim" ("Writings of the Nazarenes") and is also a Messianic Sacred Name Edition and is translated from the original Aramaic and Hebrew. The NT books are also in the original manuscript order (The Gospels; Acts; James, 1&2 Peter; 1,2,3 John, Jude; Pauline Epistles; Revelation) but the titles of the books are their Hebraic names. The HRV also divides the books into two sections The B'sorah (Goodnews) and The Sh'lukhim (Emissaries).
The original manuscript order had an important significance. It agreed with the precept that the message was to the Jews first and then to the Goyim (Gentiles). It also agrees with the concept that Ya'akov (James), Kefa (Peter) and Yochanan (John) were emissaries that come BEFORE Paul (Galatians 1:17) and with the concept that Kefa, Ya'akov and Yochanan served as three pillars which lend authority upon which Paul's message was built (Galatians 2:9) and not vice-versa. The reader was intended to read the "Jewish" epistles FIRST and then to read the Pauline epistles already having understood the Jewish epistles.
The NT reader was intended to read Ya'akov's (James') admonition concerning faith and works (Ya'akov 2) as well as Kefa's (Peter's) warnings about Paul being difficult to understand and often twisted (2 Kefa 3:15-16) etc. before ever attempting to understand the writings of Paul.
