The Complete Jewish Study Bible
Claims to be from the "original Greek"

So the question begs, which Greek?
Translated from the 1975 3rd edition of the UBS Greek.
Which as all pop-bible versions is of course from the 19th century Westcott and Hort Greek translation.

More on Westcott and Hort

And on all of the "New Age Bible Versions" from the same Greek translation:

In the light of "New Age Bible Versions" and prophetic scripture, is it a surprise that in 1998 a Jew named Dr. David H. Stern - who attended a graduate course at the University of Judaism (now the American Jewish University), taught the first course in 'Judaism and Christianity' at Fuller Theological Seminary and at UCLA - published a pop-version of the New Testament? Stern lives in Jerusalem and, although a wheelchair user, is active in Israel's Messianic Jewish community.

I frequently point out that pop-Bibles are driven by doctrine and/or profits, and this would seem to be no exception, considering that one of Dr. Stern's other titles is "Messianic Jewish Manifesto"?
He certainly would not be alone, as many false doctrines and cults invaded the church during the 19th and 20th centuries - just as prophesied.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4  And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

It would seem there were no Messianic Jews attempting to Judaize Christians prior to the 19th century. The same century that the rest of the modern cults were born.
