ESV Archaeology Study Bible

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: ESV Archaeology Study Bible
Publisher: Crossway
Author: John D. Currid and David Chapman


The very foundation of our faith rests on the assurance that the birth, life and death of Jesus all occurred in a certain place and at a certain time, recorded faithfully for us within the pages of Scripture. Also contained within those pages are the stories of real people. The details of how they worked the land, built their houses, and raised their families are central to understanding how they understood the world-changing events they experienced and the Scripture they received.

Archaeology is the science that can unlock these cultural, economic and political contexts of the Bible, helping us to bridge the centuries to understand how the original hearers of the Word understood and applied it. The result is that you gain the tools you need to apply the Word more clearly and with greater understanding to your own life!

The ESV Archaeology Study Bible assembles a range of modern scholarship to create the many unique features that will aid your study:

  • Thousands of notes illuminate the biblical text by providing archaeological, historical, and geographical background on various events, places, people, and everyday items mentioned in Scripture.
  • Hundreds of sidebars provide more in-depth information on topics of interest from an archaeological perspective.
  • Hundreds of full-color photos, maps, and diagrams invite the reader into the visual world of the Bible.
  • Book introductions describe the ways in which archaeological fieldwork has allowed us to understand each book of the Bible better.
  • Fifteen articles written specifically for this project explore key topics of interest in biblical archaeology.
  • Specially crafted charts provide an easy thumbnail guide to such matters as the Hebrew calendar and important texts of the ancient world.
  • An all-new glossary defines key words used throughout the ESV Archaeology Study Bible.

    “While the Bible is unchanging, our knowledge of the context of the Bible is ever-changing. The best new information that can be brought to the Bible is from archaeology, which, as a science of discovery, is constantly engaged in unearthing historical and cultural evidence from the world of the Bible. In the hands of skilled biblical interpreters, this knowledge can corroborate, clarify, and add local color to the biblical text. Crossway’s first-rate team of archaeologists and biblical scholars has produced a much-needed resource that will inform biblical students about the context of Scripture with a beautifully crafted format that is essential for communication in a visual age.” —Randall Price, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University; Codirector, Qumran Archaeological Project

    “Everyone who wants to understand the Bible better will welcome the ESV Archaeology Study Bible. This marvelous resource will help readers visualize the people and places of the Bible and appreciate the importance of archaeology for a deeper and more accurate understanding of Scripture. All of us are indebted to editors John Currid and David Chapman.” —Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
