Hello, AskBibleScholars. As of now, I know virtually nothing about The Bible. I have not laid my eyes upon a single page as of yet. If I wanted to obtain a copy of The Bible, what is the best version that would be available for me to purchase? I have heard of annotated versions of The Bible, that add footnotes and explanations to certain passages. Is it possible in any way for me to acquire a version of this nature? I don't want to read a copy of The Bible and be misguided by the potential lack of context and mistranslations, however insignificant, that could possibly be found in many areas of the standard English version of The Bible.
Thank you for your time.
