MODCONSPIRACY

What caught my attention upon opening the NIV Faithlife Study Bible was a brief article/insight touching on a common concern and if not, one of life’s most important questions that go through a person’s mind about why God allows suffering in the life of a believer.

Filled with insights and helpful information that can steer a new believer or the seasoned believer alike into a deeper understanding of God’s Word, it is complete with maps, beautiful and colorful illustrations, various historical timelines, diagrams and family tree and genealogies of key characters in each book that gives the reader an in-depth look of the text which more than satisfies and keeps the curious mind engaged.

Bible, curiosity, and the NIV Faithlife Study Bible

When looking at a Study bible we always should remember that the notes never are part of the bible, but they can be an asset to help us think about certain matters or to give some extra insight.

When going for a Study Bible people do hope to find it being filled with insights and helpful information that can steer a new or more seasoned believer alike into a deeper understanding of God’s Word. We expect it to offer us enough historical insight complete with maps, beautiful and colourful illustrations, various historical timelines, diagrams and family tree and genealogies of key characters in each book that gives the reader an in-depth look of the text which more than satisfies and keeps the curious mind engaged.

To remember

If we could only transmit some degree of curiosity about God and His Word to nonbelievers then we would have a seed planted in their hearts, and they would try to find a way to water that seed of curiosity. And of course, curiosity about the Bible can only be placated by studying the Word of God.

NIV Faithlife Study Bible (Zondervan, 2017) called to become one of the most appreciated and valuable study Bible in the following decades = multiple reasons for that

  1. offers thorough notes + commentaries in every chapter.
    abundant, illuminating and constructive notes always helpful to understand passages that are not always clear to us.
  2. full with tables, charts, and images = help to better understand what is being said in a given passage
    Figures + other graphic resources in full colour extremely helpful for personal study

niv-fsb-blogger-bannerThe first character that comes to my mind, when I put the terms Bible and curiosity together, is the Ethiopian eunuch. In Acts 8:34 we read: “The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” (NIV). The preceding verses tell us the eunuch was reading the Book of Isaiah the Prophet and that he went to Jerusalem to worship. We can infer this man had a high level of curiosity about God and His Word, and the result was that the eunuch was saved and baptized that day on his way home.

Salvation is by grace, period. However, there are plenty of passages in the Bible that make it clear God rewards those who seek Him (e.g. Heb 11:6). Then, we can conclude that the element that must be always present, in anyone trying to meet  and know God, is curiosity. If…
