I believe this study Bible does not release until the 23rd of August. I would also like to see this make it to Logos Yes

I ordered a print copy from CBD and received it earlier this week. I have studied it carefully. This is indeed one of the better study Bibles I have seen of late.  Scholarly as it is, I would disagree with some of the content, but it is very good just the same. I consider this study Bible "better" because it provides more in-depth information in its notes than most other study Bibles I have, and at more verses. It would indeed be a good resource to have in Logos.

If I own the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary, does this offer anything new?

Neat! Thanks for the update. How does it compare to the ivp background commentaries?

(Mk 6:45–52) The IVP Bible background commentary

6:45–52
Walking on Water

6:45–48. The language of “passing by” may refer to how God’s glory “passed by” in the Old Testament (Ex 33:19; Job 9:11), which also described God as “treading” upon the waves (Job 9:8).


6:49. Although not all Jewish teachers sanctioned a belief in ghosts, it existed on the popular level and contradicted the standard Jewish (and New Testament) teaching that the righteous and wicked dead are separated at death in view of the coming resurrection.


6:50–52. “It is I” (NIV, NASB, KJV, etc.) is literally “I am.” Although the former is the primary meaning here, in this context it is possible that Jesus (or Mark) also intends to allude to a particular nuance of the latter meaning: “I am” may refer back to the God of the Old Testament (Ex 3:14; cf. comment on Mk 6:45–48).


Keener, C. S. (1993). The IVP Bible background commentary: New Testament (Mk 6:45–52). Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press.

NIV Cultural Backgrounds - 6:45 Bethsaida. Also known as Julias, especially after AD 30, but the Gospels, which preserve early tradition, prefer its traditional local name.


6:47 middle of the lake. The lake is not large (13 miles [21 kilometers] long by 8 miles [13 kilometers] wide at its widest point), and the disciples were probably crossing at a much narrower point. Nevertheless, progress was delayed by contrary winds (v. 48).


6:48 about to pass by. This phrase could evoke God’s activity in Ex 33:22; 34:6 and applies to God also in Job 9:11, one of the same passages that refers to God treading on the sea (Job 9:8; God treads on the sea also in Ps 77:19; Hab 3:15). Together with Jesus’ “I am” statement (see v. 50; translated “It is I”) the narrative leaves no doubt as to Jesus’ divine identity (see note on v. 50).


6:49 ghost. Despite widespread Jewish teachings about heaven and the future resurrection, on a popular level many people believed in ghosts and certainly spirits more generally. Some people in antiquity believed that the souls of those who died unburied at sea wandered near the site of their demise.


6:50 It is I. The NIV’s translation is legitimate and fits the context, but the words in Greek here also mean “I am,” evoking Ex 3:14 and (especially in the Greek version) Isa 41:4; 43:10; 48:12; 51:12. Together with the context of Jesus treading on waters and being “about to pass by” (v. 48), this experience reveals Jesus’ deity (see note on v. 48).
