About the Author

JOSEPH BARUCH SHULAM (Chief Editor)

Joseph Shulam was born in Sofia, Bulgaria on March 24, 1946. His family immigrated to Israel in 1948, where they settled in Jerusalem. In 1962, he came to faith in Jesus the Messiah. He was educated at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where he received a B.A. in Bible and Bible Archeology. He later came to the United States and studied at David Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tennessee, where he received a B.A. in Chemistry and Biblical Studies. Upon completion of his B.A., he returned to Israel where he has since been involved in the local Messianic Jewish community. He continued his studies at the Hebrew University, and received an M.A. in the History of Jewish Thought in the Second Temple Period. From 1972–1975, he studied Rabbinics and Jewish Thought at the Diaspora Yeshiva in Jerusalem. Mr. Shulam is the Director of Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry in Jerusalem. Netivyah is an Israeli-government recognized organization, established by Mr. Shulam for the purposes of studying and teaching the Jewish background of the New Testament, providing a bridge between Jews and Christians and Judaism and Christianity, and nurturing the Messianic Jewish community in Israel. Mr. Shulam is also the Elder of Congregation Roeh Israel, also located in Jerusalem. In addition to Biblical Studies, he lectures worldwide on such subjects as the First Century Church in Jerusalem, the Jewish Roots of the New Testament, and Contemporary Middle East Politics. He was an adjunct professor at Abilene Christian University (ACU), and directed the ACU. graduate extension program in Jerusalem in 1988. Joseph Shulam is married to Marcia Saunders Shulam, and they have two children.

Miss Le Cornu has been residing in Jerusalem since 1983. In 1986, she began working as Joseph Shulam’s Research Assistant as part of the staff of Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry.

Format: Hardcover
Joseph Shulam is familiar with the traditions, practices, and history of his people - the Jews. Joseph Shulam is Jewish, but he is a Messianic Jew, which means he believes the Messiah has already come, and the Messiah is Jesus Christ. His life is an example of being on the front lines of faith, and he has been threatened, beaten, shunned, and hated because of his beiefs.
Shulam is a Biblical scholar, as well as an authority on Jewish customs and history. He brings a totally different point of view into this in-depth study of Romans because of his dual heritage.
Dedicated students of the Torah and the Bible will want to add this excellent book to their collection.

This book had some good insight, but I had also found a similar commentary online for free that was as good or better and quoted some from this book. It gleaned out most the relevant stuff. Too much of the book was about the Qumran community. I expected more to be from more recognized and reputable sources such as the Old Testament, Talmud, Midrash, Josephus, etc.

This is a wonderful commentary as it is presented by Joseph Shulam. He gives understanding to the difficult scriptures given to us by Paul that have not always been clear from many Christian scholars. I highly recommend this commentary to those who want a true understanding of the Book of Romans.

This book was recommended by a Rabbi friend. I was asking many questions about what Paul is addressing in Romans, and he said I should get a copy of Shulam's book. I'm very glad I did! It's not a casual read, but is more meant for the serious student who wants to know the meaning behind things that may be lost in the English rendering, as well as a truly Jewish look at each verse and passage individually.

This commentary was a complete disappointment. It assumed the basic assumptions of most Christian commentaries written by non-Jews. The result was little additional insight into the message of Romans and much distortion of the original message of Paul to the Messianic believers (both Jews and Gentiles) residing in Rome at about the year 58.
