From The Publisher:

This version expresses its original and essential Jewishness. Most other English translations of the New Testament present their message in a Gentile-Christian linguistic, cultural, and theological framework. Yeshua, the Messiah, was a Jew, was born to Jews, grew up among Jews, ministered to Jews, and died and rose from the dead in the Jewish capital.

Semitic names and terms belonging to "Jewish English" substitute for certain English words (e.g., Yochanan for "John" and emissary for "apostle"). Cultural or religious terms change to a Jewish context (e.g., the "fringe" or "edge" of Yeshua's robe to his tzitzit, which is a ritual tassel). Theological changes are made where Gentile-Christian theologies de-emphasize Jews as God's people (e.g., New Covenant "has been enacted through better promises" to has been given as Torah on the basis of better promises—Hebrews 8:6).

Formally equivalent translation, or paraphrase, has been used to bring out meanings that original readers would have understood.

It is based primarily on the United Bible Societies' The Greek New Testament, which is a critical edition. "Kurios" is not translated Lord, but Adonai. In Messianic Christianity, as opposed to Judaism, this term can include Yeshua the Messiah and Holy Spirit.
