JPS Torah Commentary - ExodusI got a copy of the Jewish Publication Society Torah Commentary on Exodus in the mail today. It is a $65 book, but I found one used for $20 on Amazon last week. I’m thrilled about it even though about half the pages are crumpled some on the top.

I already own the Genesis commentary from this series, and it’s been very meaningful to see the Torah through a Jewish perspective. I find that I often read back my own Christian interpretations to the Torah, and there is great insight to be found in seeing them apart from that.
