Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1613-1614 John Currid – The New ESV Archaeology Study Bible

An Archaeology Study Bible is a great resource for Bible study, drawing together information on all of the biblical background and perspective that enlivens our understanding of the biblical accounts and the biblical world.

And now there are two such resources. The new ESV Archaeology Study Bible, published by Crossway, joins the NIV Archaeology Study Bible published about a dozen years ago by Zondervan. In my mind they are different enough that you will enjoy having both, if that is your interest.

In these two programs we talk with one of the main editors, John Currid, of Reformed Theological Seminary, about how the project came together, what’s unique about this particular volume, and about some of his own archaeological experiences along the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, and along the Mediterranean Coast at ancient Carthage.
