Normally you have to pay $9.99 to get the ESV Student Study Bible notes, but at the moment you can get them free by following a few steps (detailed below). The Study Bible includes notes, maps, articles and introductions to books. The key step to accessing this free study bible is to invite 5 friends to join the ESVBible.org (though they don’t need to sign up for you to gain access).
Here is a summary of the steps, also underneath them is a picture of the screen that you should see when you get to steps 3&4
