I received a fruit tree order, and noticed that one was a "biblical fig", what is different about this one compared to the Chicago fig since both are hardy?

Nothing so far as I am aware; biblical fig seems to refer to common fig, Ficus carica, (of which there are several varieties) see here https://ww2.odu.edu/~lmusselm/plant/bible/commonfig.php. Quite why your supplier labelled it 'biblical fig' is a bit of a curiousity, unless that plant is not any particular variety of Ficus carica.
