The Faithlife Study Bible Has Been Completely Revised

FSBheader_1When you see the Bible in its ancient context, it comes to life as a body of literature that shaped God’s people. These are the people who were known first as the sons of Jacob, the people of Israel, and later as the Jewish people, and from them came Jesus and the Christian tradition. This is the true story of the whole world, of every person, and of our deep need for relationship with the God who made the universe. This is the story of how God sought to know us and love us—by sending His Son to die and rise for us, so that we may truly live.

What Is the Conscience according to the New Testament?

conscience

When interpreting Scripture, it’s all too easy to impose our own ideas onto the text, rather than drawing out what the biblical author and the Holy Spirit intended to convey. Sound biblical exegesis is all about getting back to the original author’s intent so we can faithfully apply the text to our lives, and the lives of those we serve.

What Events Created the World of the New Testament?

nt211There are many moments in the New Testament—heated exchanges, curious turns of phrase, and extreme reactions—that might leave the casual reader scratching his or her head. Maybe you or someone you know has asked questions like why were there so many people speaking Greek in Israel? Who were the Pharisees and Sadducees, and why were they so fastidious when it came to the Law? Why were people so upset and outraged when Jesus said he could rebuild the temple in three days? What was going on in Israel—and what had transpired centuries before—that set the stage for how people responded to Jesus?

How Did We Get the New Testament?

newt-estamentThe Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology calls inspiration the “cornerstone of evangelical theology.” But how God’s Word moved from the mind of God to the biblical writers, to their immediate audience, and finally, to the translations you and I read is a complicated and fascinating process. Understanding that process can help you answer objections to the reliability of Scripture, overcome misunderstandings, and renew your appreciation for God’s Word.

The Classic Theological Work That Was Almost Lost to History

vos

Deciphering handwritten passages in Greek and Hebrew is no one’s idea of a walk in the park. When the surrounding text is printed in Old Dutch, that task borders on impossible. But for Richard B. Gaffin Jr., translating Geerhardus Vos’ Dogmatiek was a labor of love. He and his eight-person team painstakingly translated 400,000 words into English, revealing an incredible work that had been lost to history. What we find is a rich and edifying treatment of systematic theology from one of the most important Reformed theologians.
