Book of Job/Psalms[edit]

Hi PiCo, it seems there are a couple of articles we have some different opinions about at the moment. I haven't yet had time to contribute to the discussion at the Chronology of the Bible talk page. But on the book of Job, I and another editor have given policy reasons for removing a paragraph that we believe is not presented in a neutral way, and your edit response in reverting was "Nah"? Perhaps you could try to explain in your edit summary your reasoning, or engage in some discussion, rather than simply reverting? Or if you think the information should be included, try to rewrite it in a NPOV way?

I have to admit it's not the first time I've found one of your edit summaries condescending and unhelpful. On book of Psalms you edited with "Lord knows what that was trying to say" when the editor (not me) had less than four edits previously given a reasonably good explanation in their edit summary of what they were trying to achieve (there is no separate article for "psalm" and yet the psalms article gives no explanation of what a psalm is or a link to a definition).They may not have done a perfect job in expressing what they included, but a couple of others of us were trying to improve it before you removed it. I still think it's a point worth pursuing and will consider how to do so more clearly, so if you have any ideas feel free to let me know. Thanks. Melcous (talk) 14:23, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Left a reply for you on my talk paGe, thanks! Melcous (talk) 03:17, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Collaboration[edit]

I've put in significant work and cited reliable sources. It is impolite and inappropriate for you to simply revert all my work. This is a collaborative project, no single editor owns an article, as you surely know. As I said explicitly in my comment, if you disagree with certain sentences, then edit those. Wholesale reversion is inappropriate. ProfGray (talk) 05:34, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chronology of the Bible, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Paul and Jubilee (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Books of Kings[edit]

PiCo,
Hi. While the Christian Bible has divided it into two books, in Judaism, Melakhim (Kings) (part of Nevi'im (Prophets)),is a single book. Take a look at the table in Books of the Bible.
Best,

Multiple citations reduced[edit]

Hi. You recently removed as overkill three out of four citations to a single statement in the lead of Goliath, and I restored them, saying they were necessary, in part for future editing of the article. I have now re-removed three of those four citations and relocated them to support the appropriate, newly created section. Thanks for your patience! Cheers. --Tsavage (talk) 16:22, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Gospel of Matthew - 50 CE date[edit]

First let me say that I strongly support your 85 CE date. If Dunn is correct, the Oral Tradition would has lasted until 70 CE. Then with the fall of the Temple would have come the beginnings of the Talmud and the proto-gospels. This makes your 85 CE date very very likely! However the challenge Casey has put to us is formidable. Indeed the 50 CE may very well be the majority date in 2015. Because of the many reliable sources that put forward the 50 CE date we must put aside our own intrests for the sake of the encyclopedia and adhere NPOV.

Palestine[edit]

Hi PiCo, thanks for your message re this article, and for your compliments re the improvements. I agree with the sentiment of your comments on the talk page and would encourage your edits on the topic as you see fit. My main focus has been to ensure that all areas of the topic are treated only in a summarized fashion at that article, with detail on other sub-articles where needed.

gog and magog[edit]

"I just reverted an edit of yours at Gog and Magog, for reasons given in the edit summary - it was pretty hard to read for anyone not already acquainted with Rabbinic literature, and seemed to cover material already dealt with in the second para of the following sections. However, if you could do some research into more recent sources, it could lead to a useful stand-alone section section on Jewish treatment of Gog/Magog through to the modern period. Let me know if you'd like to take this on. "

- I would like to do this; I do feel that it important to have more detail on this topic. Hope to get time to take further look at it this week. Look forward to doing something with this topic with you! RK (talk) 17:03, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
