Which is the better study bible in terms of content? I know the ESV is a superior translation and the NIV quite horrid, but as to content of the study notes, which is better?

I do not know about the Esv version, but own and have used a lot the Niv, and the good news is that its based upon the much superior 1984 text, and not the horrid 2011 revision. The articles and footnotes are very good, as they get more into the backgrounds around the Bible books, and not actual commentary on the scriptures themselves.

I would opt for a biblical archaeology handbook instead. I just finished a Biblical Archaeology course in school. I can give you a list of resources we used if you would like.

My professor actually located one of the Dead Sea Scroll caves.

That sounds great. I would be interested in such a list.
