New KJV Word Study Bible Helps Unlock the Languages of the Bible

Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 3, 2016 – Thomas Nelson is pleased to announce the release of their newest study Bible, the KJV Word Study Bible. Biblical manuscripts were written by the authors in three languages: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. Not knowing these Biblical languages can sometimes make it challenging to understanding the meaning and intent of Scripture. The KJV Word Study Bible allows readers to delve deeper into the original languages of the Bible and to better understand what God had in mind when He inspired the Scriptures.

The KJV Word Study Bible includes in-text subheadings and 1,700 easy-to-use word studies with select Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words explained in nearly every chapter, from Genesis to Revelation. Book introductions, word definitions, indexes, colored maps, footnotes, and concordance all help readers get closer to the original languages of the Bible. This easy-to-use study Bible does not require previous knowledge of languages or the use of an extensive reference system, so it is a perfect way to sample the benefits of immersive Bible word studies.

Daniel Marrs, Associate Publisher for Thomas Nelson Bibles says: “Engaging with the languages in which Scripture was originally written is a great way to bring these sacred words to life. The KJV Word Study Bible uniquely opens up the richness and significance of key biblical words, and helps make Scripture’s original languages wonderfully accessible for today’s readers.”
