Jeremiah Study Bible follows years of work by Shadow Mtn. pastor
A noted pastor and author has released a new study Bible.
After almost 50 years in ministry and writing more than 50 books, Dr. David Jeremiah has released The Jeremiah Study Bible.
The Jeremiah Study Bible is the culmination of nearly five decades of exhaustive study, with comprehensive introductions to each of the 66 books of the Bible, and more than 8,000 study notes with embedded cross-references.
Jeremiah, who is pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, says it's his prayer that the study Bible will help people understand what the Bible means to them as individuals made in their Creator's image.
Dr. Jeremiah says the first step to meaningful study is understanding what the Bible says.
"If you're just going to read the Bible, you just need the text," he advises. "If you're going to study the Bible, you need to go beyond that."
The Jeremiah Study Bible is built on the New King James Version of the Bible, Pastor Jeremiah's favorite translation and the one he preaches from each Sunday.
The pastor further explains that it's important to ask the question, What does the Bible say?, which Jeremiah admits sounds like a simple question.
"You need to get to the original intent of the Bible," he urges. "What was it that the author was conveying to the people who heard him or read him at that time?"
In addition to the introductions, notes, articles, and sidebars, The Jeremiah Study Bible also features numerous charts and maps as well as geographical and archaeological information, a teacher's topical index, a full-length concordance, and additional digital and multimedia resources - including written material and video introductions and teaching from Dr. Jeremiah - accessible through QR codes.
