Study Note Contributors

The following people were responsible for writing the ESV Study Bible notes for the books of the Bible indicated after their names. In many cases more than one person contributed to the writing of the notes for specific books, and the notes for each of the books involved many levels of review and editing. The final notes as they appear in the ESV Study Bible, therefore, are the result of a collaborative effort of many people. The Publisher and the Editorial Oversight Committee wish to express their enormous appreciation to all of the Study Note Contributors for their tremendous contribution to the creation of the ESV Study Bible.
