The Amplified Study Bible


I don’t normally plug a particular Bible Translation, but in this particular case, I’m making an exception. I’ve been using the online version of the Amplified Bible for some time now. I use it in conjunction with other translations such as the KJV, NIV and the NAS. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to purchase a hard copy of their new Study Bible and I’m currently going through the Old Testament again, with my beloved ink markers!

The Amplified Study Bible has a number of features that I really enjoy.

The first-of-its-kind Amplified® Study Bible, allows me to grasp the meaning behind the original Greek and Hebrew texts by featuring verse by verse study notes and the text of the newly revised Amplified translation. The Amplified® translation was created to deliver enhanced understanding of the rich nuances and shades of meaning of the original Bible languages. For this kind of study, no working knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required—just a desire to know more about what God says in his Word. Now the updated Amplified translation is even easier to read and better than ever to study and understand. It includes more amplification in the Old Testament and refined amplification in the New Testament. Additionally, the Bible text has been improved to read smoothly with or without amplifications, so that the text may be read either way. It’s the same study material that Amplified readers love, now with even clearer wording for deeper understanding.



Some of the features of this new study Bible that I enjoy are:

A unique system of punctuation, italics, references, and synonyms to unlock subtle shades of meaning as found in the original languages

Thousands and thousands of cross references

More than 5000 concise study notes that provide helpful, practical, application-oriented comments on passages of Scripture and open the Word for readers to apply it to life

330 practical theological notes draw attention to important doctrinal content in the Bible and explain how to apply it every day

Book introductions give background information about each of the Bible’s 66 Books

A topical index provides an alphabetical listing of key words and study topics and their related passages

Full-color maps are included to enhance your study

10.5-point type size

If you’ve never looked at this translation I would strongly encourage you to do so.

Here’s the link to it on Amazon if you’re interested:
