Enhanced for Bible Study using the Resource Guide
Available for: iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Windows Desktop and Windows Store.
Cultural background is an important but often unexamined factor that shapes and influences any piece of writing. The Bible is no different. In the New Testament, gospel and epistle writers used expressions and ideas they knew would be familiar to their readers. Jesus himself spoke in parables that drew heavily on the common experiences of his audience.
But for modern readers, the cultural world of early Christianity is quite foreign—which means that reading and understanding the New Testament in its proper cultural and historical context can sometimes be challenging. The Dictionary of New Testament Background is a reference work designed to narrow the gap between the perspective of modern readers and the ancient setting of the New Testament. Drawing from the best and most recent scholarship on the ancient Mediterranean world, this work offers important information on Jewish religion, Greco-Roman culture, and other factors of vital importance in shaping the New Testament world.

When Is The 6.0 Update Expected?
The 6.0 update is our top priority. We are working hard to get the update out as soon as we can. This is a major update to our core technology that requires us to rework major sections of the app. It could still be several months before we have fully rolled out 6.0 to all platforms.
