Jeremy Bouma (Th.M.) has pastored on Capitol Hill and with the Evangelical Covenant Church in Michigan. He founded THEOKLESIA, which connects the 21st century Church to the vintage Christian faith; holds a Master of Theology in historical theology; and makes the vintage faith relevant at jeremybouma.com.

Last month, Zondervan was pleased to release a ground-breaking new study Bible built on the most widely-read English Bible translation, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible. In the two videos below, general editor D. A. Carson explains its scope and benefits.

One of his more insightful revelations is the framework of the ZSB: Where other study Bibles have chosen to build upon systematic theology, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible is rooted in biblical theology. Not only do the notes follow this trajectory. Twenty-eight essays at the end pick up certain themes and follow them through the whole Bible as well.

As Carson explains, “It’s not looking at the Bible’s themes from a distance giving a summarizing view, but it tracks the themes throughout the Bible as they go.” Some of those themes include: Kingdom, Jerusalem, the consummation, messiah, justice, holiness, covenant, and temple.

In the end, Carson hopes this study Bible will help believers around the world “understand the Bible better and therefore understand God better.” Watch Carson share below to understand how the freshly-conceived NIV Zondervan Study Bible will benefit ordinary Christian reader.
