The heart of the NIV Study Bible is over 21,000 notes that expand your understanding and knowledge of the Bible. The notes sync with your reading via a parallel window or through the resource guide. These notes provide information about the Bible text, including important words and concepts, interpretation of difficult verses, parallels between people and events, historical and literary contexts, or how one passage might shed light on another. Important information is easy to spot with special symbols highlighting insights from archaeology, concepts for personal application, or characterizations of people and people groups.
There are over 90 full-color maps in the NIV Study Bible, covering approximately 2,000 years of history, showing recreations of important Biblical cities, and more. Within the Olive Tree App these maps work in context to your reading, making them easily available to visualize the locations of key Bible events. No page flipping or looking through indexes to locate them!
Covering both concepts as well as specific words, the included cross-reference system provides a series of interlinking references. These interlocking references continually intersect and diverge, dealing with various aspects of a concept or word, bringing forward the nuances of meaning within the Bible text. Within the app, this means that you can quickly travel from link to link with just a tap or two and explore all the depth and meaning of a particular item, as well as related items, all without leaving your current spot in the text.
70 charts and models were specifically designed for the NIV Study Bible. They provide detailed information about non-biblical texts, Old testament covenants, major archaeological finds and more. Regardless of their location they are immediately available to you through the resource guide charts section to provide more information to your Bible reading.
OUTLINESA complete outline of each book’s content is provided. Because the Olive Tree App has an outline section in the Resource Guide, you can see how your current reading fits in with the design of an entire Bible book.
No matter where you are reading in the Bible, you can pull up detailed information on the background, purpose, themes, theological significance, special problems and distinctive literary features of the book by accessing the introductions section of the Resource Guide. Quickly gain context and refresh your memory and understanding of the circumstances that are so important to understanding the Word. Even beyond the book introductions, the NIV Study Bible also contains six section introductions that will help you place your reading in the bigger picture of the Bible as a whole.
As you read along in your Bible, the resource guide will automatically show you any images in the NIV Study Bible that relate to the passage you are reading. Along with maps, charts and diagrams, illustrations visually clarify the information you are reading in the Bible text.
