I am doing maybe two or three bible studies and when I learned about the study bibles, to help with the explaining of things much deeper, I was soooo excited. I have one on my wish list.
I know this bible will bless someone! It's a great tool to own in your walk with Christ! Come #Win The NIV First-Century Study Bible!

Not long ago, a close friend and I were talking about Bible interpretation, and how nice it would be to know what certain things meant, during the time frame they were written. Shortly thereafter, I received an e-mail asking if I would like to know more about the NIV First-Century Study Bible. Perfect timing, and a perfect solution!!
This Bible makes it easier to understand what you're reading, and it allows for a deeper understanding of what things meant, in context, at the time they were written.
|I love the photographs throughout the NIV First-Century Study Bible.|
It is incredible to see the culture, scenery, & customs come to life through pictures.
There are photographs in the NIV First-Century Study Bible that help the reader 'see' the culture, scenery, customs, etc. that they are also reading about. It really helps bring the stories to life, and makes for pleasant reading.
|Because it is a study Bible, there are excellent references to help you find things,|
like this table that shows where to locate the parables of Jesus.
Since it is a study Bible, you will find all kinds of helpful inserts throughout. There are many examples, and the one I used above shows a table of the Parables of Jesus. It is a helpful, fast way to locate them, all conveniently listed for you in one place.
|The NIV First-Century Study Bible has maps!|
|Words you might not understand are explained.|
One example can be seen in the Table of Weights and Measures shown here.
Words that you might not understand, such as those used to describe weights and measures, are explained in convenient tables that are easy to read, and understand.
|The Concordance is one of many helpful features.|
And of course, there are many thoughtfully designed features to help you get the most out of what you are reading (like the Concordance pictured above).
