Look Inside: Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary

Posted by on 02/12/2018 in:

Have you ever been sitting in church and wondered what a Philistine era oil jar looked like? Okay, maybe that is a little too specific… but the idea is that you CAN find an image of this ancient artifact WITHOUT using wifi. How? We’ve got the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentary available for the Olive Tree Bible App. Let’s look inside.

STUDY MADE SIMPLE

The resource guide of the Olive Tree Bible App makes using Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary a seamless part of your study.

In the screenshot below (taken from an iPad) I have my Bible opened to Daniel chapter 1. The commentary section of the resource guide then shows me which of my commentaries have related entries to this text.

The circle next to the title indicates there five entries related to this section of Scripture. So, I’ll click on that commentary to see a preview of the those entries.

Since this chapter talks about Daniel and his friends being placed in a Babylonian learning environment, I’m interested in learning more about what that may have looked like. So, I tapped on the third entry that talks about the language and literature of the Babylonians.

Then, I read a fascinating article about historical Babylonian education that Daniel and his friends would have been exposed to. Thanks to enhanced commentaries like the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary I can easily gain insight that helps me view the Biblical text in new ways.
