Please note that the Christianity Portal selected content nominations and the Christianity Portal selected content schedule are outdated by many months, as of July 2010. If any content for the current month is empty, please be bold and update the portal directly. Updates to maintain the nominations and schedule are also welcome.

The selected content for the Christianity Portal is rotated on a monthly basis. To be nominated, an article must be of high quality (at least a B-class on the assessment scale) and must relate to the topic of Christianity. A picture must be of high quality and high resolution (at least 800x600 or 600x800) and must also relate to a topic of Christianity. In addition, a picture must have a free-use license (no fair use images).

Under Wikipedia's non-free content policy, only freely licensed (or, in this case, public domain) resources can appear outside of article space. In other words, for selected scripture passages, most modern translations are not appropriate. The King James Version, American Standard Version, and World English Bible are in the all public domain. WikiSource is currently creating a public domain Bible translation. This Wikisource content does not meet Wikipedia's core policies of verifiability and should not be used.

The selected content schedule contains a schedule of past and future scheduled content. Please update this list when scheduling content to be used.

Church Army Chapel, Blackheath[edit]

Church Army Chapel, Blackheath (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

Probably the first 20th-century chapel of modern design to have been originally designed for a central altar. The architect was recommended by Basil Hume (before he was Cardinal); Mervyn Stockwood, Bishop of Southwark, recommended that the Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey consecrate it; and Cardinal Heenan turned up to admire and approve it. --Storye book (talk) 13:29, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

First Crusade[edit]

First Crusade (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

General article. Featured article, hasn't been on the portal. Post biblical history hasn't had much play in the selected article space. --GRBerry 21:36, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

This article is also a big part of Portal:Crusades. Seems we could find an article not so closely covered by another portal. --Carlaude (talk) 23:47, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Biy a do you know book.

Christianity and alcohol[edit]

Christianity and alcohol (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

General article. Good article, but currently has a caution flag, so postpone until that gets resolved. Nice variation from recent trend of focusing on biblical episodes. --GRBerry 21:36, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Nominations for selected picture[edit]

[[:Image:Wieliczka-daVinci.jpg]][edit]

(It is a very nice work of art on general or well known topic, and in this case, the piece is of historical significance .) --Carlaude (talk) 02:59, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

[[:Image:Exhibition catholic liturgical objects Saint-Paul Lyon.jpg]][edit]

(In contrast to the previous suggestions, here it is an image that stresses a difference, not a common thread. I think it is a nice way to communicate through an image the importance given by certain branches of Christianity to the aesthetics of liturgy and rite.) --Alexmar983 (talk) 19:51, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks Alex, these are beautiful pictures and, as you said, show a diversity in Christian traditions and art. Since tre doesn't seem to be much discussion here, so I'm going to go ahead and add these images for the months following February. Peter (Talk page) 20:33, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Edit: I'll add all of the above, including the 2008 images. Peter (Talk page) 20:35, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Nominations for selected scripture[edit]

Baruch 2:16-18[edit]

"16 O Lord, look down from your holy dwelling, and consider us. Incline your ear, O Lord, and hear; 17 open your eyes, O Lord, and see, for the dead who are in Hades, whose spirit has been taken from their bodies, will not ascribe glory or justice to the Lord; 18 but the person who is deeply grieved, who walks bowed and feeble, with failing eyes and famished soul, will declare your glory and righteousness, O Lord." Baruch 2:16-18 NRSV

Great passage asking for God's help. Similar to Ezekiel 37 in theme. Beautiful verses.

Anthony 'Timoteo' Fisher 17:22, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Mattathias' last words (1 Maccabees 2:49-70)[edit]

"49 Now the days drew near for Mattathias to die, and he said to his sons: "Arrogance and scorn have now become strong; it is a time of ruin and furious anger. 50 Now, my children, show zeal for the law, and give your lives for the covenant of our ancestors. 51 "Remember the deeds of the ancestors, which they did in their generations; and you will receive great honor and an everlasting name. 52 Was not Abraham found faithful when tested, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness? 53 Joseph in the time of his distress kept the commandment, and became lord of Egypt. 54 Phinehas our ancestor, because he was deeply zealous, received the covenant of everlasting priesthood. 55 Joshua, because he fulfilled the command, became a judge in Israel. 56 Caleb, because he testified in the assembly, received an inheritance in the land. 57 David, because he was merciful, inherited the throne of the kingdom forever. 58 Elijah, because of great zeal for the law, was taken up into heaven. 59 Hananiah, Azariah, and Mishael believed and were saved from the flame. 60 Daniel, because of his innocence, was delivered from the mouth of the lions. 61 "And so observe, from generation to generation, that none of those who put their trust in him will lack strength. 62 Do not fear the words of sinners, for their splendor will turn into dung and worms. 63 Today they will be exalted, but tomorrow they will not be found, because they will have returned to the dust, and their plans will have perished. 64 My children, be courageous and grow strong in the law, for by it you will gain honor. 65 "Here is your brother Simeon who, I know, is wise in counsel; always listen to him; he shall be your father. 66 Judas Maccabeus has been a mighty warrior from his youth; he shall command the army for you and fight the battle against the peoples. 67 You shall rally around you all who observe the law, and avenge the wrong done to your people. 68 Pay back the Gentiles in full, and obey the commands of the law." 69 Then he blessed them, and was gathered to his ancestors. 70 He died in the one hundred forty-sixth year and was buried in the tomb of his ancestors at Modein. And all Israel mourned for him with great lamentation." 1 Maccabees 2:49-70

The inspiring sermon of Mattathias son of John, founder of the Maccabees.

Anthony 'Timoteo' Fisher 17:23, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

John 3:16[edit]

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life (NAB)
