Currently there are many new resources from "Jewish Publication Society". What would you recommend?  I see resources on history, Jewish wisdom, etc., but frankly speaking, I don't know the authors and the subject at all.

Personally, I'm in on The JPS Bible Commentary: Ruth and Jerusalem: Portrait of the City in the Second Temple Period.  The latter resource claims to be "brimming with maps and photographs" that seem interesting.

The book Jerusalem: Portrait of the City in the Second Temple Period  by Lee Levine is a very good book. I have the hardcover. Plus I have heard Lee Levine speak. Any book by him is an excellent resource.

How to Read the Bible by Brettler is quite good.
