Yes of course you can. When I was a christian I read it all the time, now I am a Messianic Believer. It confirms everything that Yahushua said from His Father YHVH Elohim.

Sure you can- but you may be upset to find that someof the translations which you think point to Christianity dissapear when traslated accurately in Jewish books where the translators expect the reader to actually have some knowledge of Hebrew and thus they cannot fiddle the translation to fit an agenda but have to give an accurate rendition! the Two best translations are the Artscroll Stone edition and Koren "Jerusalem Bible" though both have to be purchased since they are still under copyright. The translation online at is also a good one and can be read for free online

You mean "The Old Testament"? We do it every day! Edit to add: @? : Protestant translations ARE, in fact, taken directly from the Masoretic Text. They are "English translations of the Tanakh".
