Pastor and no. 1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah will be joining together with Kari Jobe and MercyMe in celebration of The Jeremiah Study Bible at Madison Square Garden Dec. 5.
Worship leader Marshall Hall and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers will also be performing on that night in a time of worship and praise.
"I am absolutely thrilled to celebrate the release of this study Bible in the heart of New York, a city I truly love, and alongside some of my very favorite contemporary Christian performers," said Dr. Jeremiah in a press release. "This promises to be a truly special evening in a truly special city celebrating a truly special book -- the Word of God. I can hardly wait!"
The Jeremiah Study Bible is the culmination of nearly five decades of tireless study and research, and will offer comprehensive introductions to each of the 66 books of the Bible along with more than 8,000 study notes the pastor has compiled over the years.
"God's Word is deeply moving and powerful to me, and as I worked to produce this Bible I kept in mind three goals," Dr. Jeremiah explained in a press release. "First, I wanted to share what the Bible says. Second, I wanted to help people discover what it means. And third, I wanted to help people understand what it means for them, as individuals made in their Creator's image. That's the most important thing, because if people walk away from the Bible and they know what it says and they know what it means, but they don't know how it works in their own life, they will see no change."
The Jeremiah Study Bible is in the New King James Version of the Bible, his preferred version to study and teach from. The Bible will also serve as a sort of history manuel to Biblical times featuring numerous charts and maps as well as geographical and archaeological information.
Digital resources and video introductions will be available online as well.
The Bible will be available Nov. 26 wherever Christian books are sold.
Registration for the concert begins Aug. 23 at www.davidjeremiah.org/newyork.
Group seating is available for $25 with reserved seats costing $35. Premier Partner seating is $50 and will include a signed copy of The Jeremiah Study Bible.
Doors to the theater will open at 6:00 p.m.
