The NIV Biblical Theology Study Bible Notes is designed for use with the 2011 New International Version (NIV) text.
“Instead, the Song describes the joys of a sexual relationship within marriage without indicating whether that relationship is reality or fantasy.” (Page 1138)
“In the NIV, the final part of v. 17 refers to Abraham’s many descendants. But it is possible that the Hebrew word denotes a single individual who will be victorious over his enemies. This singular reading could help explain the apostle Paul’s claim that Jesus Christ is the ultimate descendant of Abraham (Gal 3:16).” (Page 58)
“Revelation’s theological message challenges readers to repent of and resist worldly compromise, spiritual complacency, and false teaching (cf. 2:14–16, 20–23; 3:2–3, 15–19). It also encourages and strengthens believers to hold fast to their testimony about Jesus, steadfastly endure trials, and resiliently hope in God’s present and future reign (1:9; 2:10; 3:11; 12:17; 14:12; 22:7).” (Page 2276)
“The central theme of Hebrews is that Jesus Christ as exalted Son and high priest is God’s final revelation and provides full cleansing from sin and open access to God—the reality that the OT anticipated but was never meant to accomplish.” (Page 2197)
“Redemption is not primarily a judicial proclamation; it is a spiritual rebirth issuing in changed behavior” (Page 1265)
