In this day and age we are fortunate to have over 2000 years of writings, interpretations and instruction from the Bible. We have had numerous wise men and women sit on councils, debate textual variances, make incredible archeological discoveries all to make our knowledge of the Bible more complete.
A lot of this study is put into the publication of "Study Bibles."
Study Bibles are Bibles that are composed of a translation of text, notes on verses that help explain cultural idioms, meaning and more, background and cultural information, maps, charts, infographics, and much more.
The modern study Bible is an amazing collection of scholarship that we have available at our fingertips.
There are a number of study Bibles available and I'm asked every so often, which one should I recommend. To help answer that question Tim Challies and I created the infographic "7 Great Study Bibles." We hope this will be helpful in finding a good study Bible to use.
