There is a better version that sells for 25.00 with study notes and more.
YAHSHUA ABIEL
Too me, it felt as is someone with little knowledge of the Hebrew or Greek language added words "here and there" to make themselves sound knowledgeable.
Jeffrey Tyler
Like the Restoration Scriptures, it is also the translation of one man and not a group of scholars that could add balance.

Pros:
* Hebrew proper names are supplied, including the replacement of the traditional English "LORD" with the Tetragrammaton.
* Footnotes provide interesting background information, insight, and clarification, from a Hebraic Roots perspective.
* A number of frequently-used English words are replaced with Hebrew transliterations, thus helping the beginning student of Hebrew to become more familiar with some basic vocabulary.

Cons: I do not intend to be unnecessarily critical, since this version has many helpful features. It is quite apparent that this project was a massive undertaking, and I certainly do not want to detract from its value. However I feel that it would benefit greatly by careful proofreading and editing, and that the following points could be made:
* On a number of occasions, the transliterated Hebrew word is not, in fact, the actual word used in the Hebrew Scriptures. This can be confusing and at times misleading.
* The punctuation is unwieldy and many times grammatically incorrect. There is an annoying overuse and misuse of commas and colons. These are often distracting and interrupt the flow of the text.
* Although the notes many times provide helpful background information, insight, and clarification, on occasion they come across as being opinionated and dogmatic. It would seem preferable if these opinions were expressed as such, rather than being presented as facts.

First the translation was translated by Moshe Koniuchowski who is a leader in the two-house movement.

Furthermore, the preface starts out stating that the translation emphasis the two-house movement, in other words it's been manipulated to push a particular doctrine.

I don't know about anybody else but I don't want a translation translated by one man who has a doctrinal agenda to push, I want a translation that emphasizes what the word says.

One example of the how his doctrine has influenced the translation is spelling the Messiah's name Yahshua but there is no Hebrew name Yahshua, the Hebrew spelling they say it comes from is Yod-Hay-Waw-Shin-Ayin but that is Yahushua but that is not the name that is in any of the Aramaic or Hebrew text, the Hebrew name that is used is actually Yod-Shin-Waw-Ayin which is Y'shua or Yeshua. There is only two books of of over 500 that spell it this way, two books that had been circulated throughout a rabbinical community and brought forth by a rabbi to refute the faith of the Messiah. The 500-700 Aramaic text and all the other Hebrew texts all have it as Y'shua or Yeshua over 1000x throughout the New Testament text.

I know it does not fit into the whole has to be Yah sacred name movement but it is the truth. I would rather have the truth than man-made doctrine, which is what I hate. Whenever you follow doctrines that are contrary to what the word says, you are in a cult.

Amazon Review of Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition

Unfortunately, most of the Bibles out there that use the proper name YHWH or Yahweh for God instead of LORD are associated with Messianic Ministries that either deny the deity of Yahshua or deny His humanity, revile and hate Christians and Christian holy days, and have other cult-like and divisive beliefs.

For example, I own the Restoration Scriptures by Rabbi Koniuchowsky in Florida whose Messianic synagogue was originally a true light in the darkness. I actually studied with him for a while and found value in his Two-House teachings and Jewish view of the Old Testament Scriptures. Unfortunately, a few years ago he began to teach many heresies (including polygamy!) and can definitely now be labeled a cult. As a result, I will have nothing further to do with his organization or his translation of the Bible.

Though the Restoration Bible uses the name Yahshua instead of Jesus and the Tetragrammaton YHWH instead of LORD and has many helpful footnotes, it also uses many transliterated Hebrew expressions that make this translation very difficult to read. I know this is to help teach Hebrew to Gentile believers in the Hebrew Roots movement, but I found it highly irritating to have to keep referring to the glossary in the back of this Bible to find out what these words mean and I did not retain them well. That is partly why I refused to use this translation in my Language of God Series books, though I originally purchased it to do so. The other reason is that the notes and words used in the translation occasionally reflect Koniuchowsky's cult theology, which unsettled me and led me to find out that this supposed Messianic Rabbi is really a wolf in shepherd's clothing.

this bible for this price is a rip off for the blind and those void of the holy spirit. Selling it for this price put worldly profit over Father Yahweh purpose for his authorship. There is a bible that is better that sell for 25.00 and a sacred name bible that is free; for a good will store or anyone to sell this bible for this amount let me a true Hebrew by birth know that these sellers are headed by satan incarnated in a physical body. For those who would pay this amount for this bible remember Father Yahweh would never rip you off. There is a better version that sells for 25.00 with study notes and more. This bible the restoration scriptures true name edition study bible in any form fair market value should not exceed 55.00 total cost. Yahshua, Yahweh's salvation died for us because He loved us, his word should never be PROSTITUTED for corporate or personal financial gain. Note! until one has an understanding of the original hebrew language they should not use modern hebrew or any other modern language less than 4000 years old to define or transliterate both sacred names; only bastards bear different family names with different spellings than their fathers. My family name is spelled with the exact identical letters as my biological father and mother and we all spell our sir name identical letter after letter as our father. Yahshua Messiah said I'am come in my father's name and you receive me not 'let any other come in his own name him ye will receive [Prophecy Fulfilled]..John 5:43;Proverb 30:6.
