Do any of you have the NASB Study Bible

Postby Christian2 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 11:21 am

I'm looking for the NASB's commentary from the NASB Study Bible for the following verse:

Matthew 21:7New American Standard Bible (NASB)

7 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on [a]the coats.

Thanks.

Sorry. My only study bible is a NIV.

I long had an NASB study Bible - was my favorite and main Bible. Subsequently, I had an ESV for a long time - totally loved it. And then my puppy ate it - or, at least he chewed it up to a point it was unusable. True story - I was unbelievably upset - all those highlights, notes. It might have been rebound, but So, I started over with a real leather-bound ESV. It's just a fantastic bible. The translation teams footnotes have a few Calvinist influences, but not heavily so. Wayne Grudem - big part of that team, he's a Charismatic Calvinist.

The NIV reads very well - but it has some issues - primarily as it is not a word-for-word translation - which can cause problems. Some of which are noted here on Questions.org: https://www.gotquestions.org/New-International-Version-NIV.html

My issue with my NIV study bible, was that I would read the Bible, and when I got to a tricky verse, I'd immediately go to the study notes for an explanation, instead of digging deeper into scripture itself. I just became too accustomed to reading their interpretation.

But the NIV is a very easy to read translation. That's why I got it.

Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

NASB was/is my preference, and turning back to a NKJV to compare against alternative word-for-word translations. NIV, I did initially like, until I saw too many theological persuasions given it tried to be a more contextual translation of passages. Yet NIV is still a very good Bible translation.

If buying a Bible, it'd normally be an NASB, although I've been recently also impressed by ESV. I haven't read passages enough in it though, for it to replace an NASB as my main preference.

Thankfully, I look up Scripture online, makes it much easier to compare different translations, and then drill down with the Blue Letter Bible to see original terms and their associated meanings. Can't imagine just sitting down with a Bible these days, because the level with which I'd normally want to dig into just wouldn't be there.

Most at my church don't bring Bibles anymore - usually, some kind of phone or small tablet.

Although I still prefer the bolder language used in the KJV especially in the NT.I think when people say the KJV is hard to read it really only applies to the OT and not the NT. But I will use other translations and compare,or if I read something in the KJV that is hard to understand I will compare to other translations.Right now though I really only have access to my KJV bible,it is my go to bible for bible reading that has highlighted verses,notes,etc in it.But I do compare with other translations sometimes.I have several different translations of the bible like the NKJV,NIV,etc but I can go online if I want to see other translations and compare and I do sometimes.From doing this I really like the NASB version except that it seems to be tainted alittle too much toward a YEC interpretation though,other than that though, I really like it.

Better literal translation are the NASB, NKJV, KJV, and ESV all are good...

NIV is alright.
I disagree with the KJV only movement.
