Retail Price: $24.99 Pre-Pub Price: $18.74
Meditate on Scripture while reviewing biblical Greek and Hebrew with this unique daily devotional. Treasures Old and New provides a Hebrew Old Testament and Greek New Testament passage for each day of the year, along with useful vocabulary and grammar notes. These readings, selected for doctrinal importance and relation to the Christian calendar, also include brief passages from the Lutheran Confessions in English. With this book, you'll grow in the Lord and build your original languages skills at the same time.
. . . this book is a welcome resource for anyone wishing to maintain a hard-won facility in the biblical languages. It could even be a way back into the languages for those who have allowed their skills to deteriorate. In addition, on many days a useful meditation on Scripture and the Confessions can be had—all on one page. Northwestern Publishing House is to be thanked for bringing this project to the market. Hopefully, it will encourage the marvelous habit of reading and meditating on the Scriptures in their original languages among those in the church whom God has blessed with the knowledge and skill to read them as they were written. —Lutheran Education Journal
Treasures Old and New is a new-found treasure. . . . John C. Jeske has done yeoman's work in producing a truly evangelical Lutheran version of Heinrich Bitzer's Light on the Path and its successors. It uses some easier and more important Hebrew texts. In addition to the daily format of both New Testament Greek and Old Testament Hebrew, a third daily 'reading' from the Lutheran Confessions was added to Jeske's manuscript. Thanks be to God! —Liturgy, Hymnody, and Pulpit
