The Gospel of Matthew was originally written in Hebrew before being translated into Greek and other languages. The Hebrew version of Matthew survives in at least twenty-eight manuscripts copied by Jewish scribes in the Middle Ages. Among the most important manuscripts of the Hebrew Matthew is the one preserved in the British Museum Library. A full-color reproduction of a section of this manuscript is now available for the first time as an 18” x 24” Poster. This reproduction contains a story of the naming of Jesus as told in Hebrew Matthew 1:18-25 and includes the original form of Jesus’ Hebrew name: Yeshua.
The included booklet written by Nehemia Gordon contains information about the poster including a Hebrew transcription, an English translation, and detailed explanations. Learn about the unique features of Hebrew Matthew, about the traditions that guided the Jewish scribes who transmitted this ancient text, and how the name Yeshua became “Jesus”.
This rare poster is a wonderful evangelism tool that can be used in your home or at your office. Strike up a conversation and share the wonderful information about Jesus's Hebrew name, Yeshua and its significance to us all.
