Deletion of Wikipedia Page
In reference to the Sobha Developers Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sobha_Developers_Limited), I apologize for the content which is being listed as "Unambiguous advertising or promotion". It's disheartening to see the deletion of Wikipedia page of Sobha Developers which was active for more than 2 years, which has served as information source and provided ample scope for user generated content. Still a rookie in Wikipedia will henceforth ensure adherence to Wikipedia guidelines and will be clear, will be as concise as possible—but no more concise, will emphasize the spirit of the rule, will maintain scope and avoid redundancy, will avoid overlinking, and will not contradict each other. Request you to help in reinstating the old wiki page of Sobha Developers and going further, will seek your approval and guidance before editing any content on the page. I've been reaching out to several wiki admins, conveying the same. Requesting you to look into the content and help in this regard.
Here is the content from Sobha Developers Wikipedia page, which was active for more than 2 years, please help in reinstating the page.
- Looks like the article Sobha Developers Limited was deleted by another admin User:Toddst1. Can you talk to him ? -- Tinu Cherian - 19:28, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.
A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)This message was sent out by --EdwardsBot (talk) 01:20, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Christianity Newsletter (July 2013)
From the Editor
WP:X has gained another Featured Article, Gospel of the Ebionites, by Ignocrates. The Gospel of the Ebionites is the name scholars give to an apocryphal gospel that supposedly belonged to a sect known as the Ebionites. It consists of seven short quotations discovered in a heresiology known as the Panarion, written by Epiphanius of Salamis, and its original title remains unknown. The text is a gospel harmony composed in Greek, and is believed to have been written during the middle of the 2nd century.
The main page also featured several DYK hooks for articles in our project, namely Bob Fu, List of places of worship in Tandridge (district), Catholic Press, Garendon Abbey, St. John's Episcopal Church (Jersey City, New Jersey), Pargev Martirosyan, Praskvica Monastery, Heather Preceptory, St. Augustin, Coburg, Longleat Priory, St Mihangel's Church, Llanfihangel yn Nhowyn, St Enghenedl's Church, Llanynghenedl, Christianization of Moravia, Christianization of Bohemia, Repton Abbey, St Peter's Church, Llanbedrgoch, Medingen Abbey, Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, St. James on-the-Lines, and Leopold Karl von Kollonitsch.
Church of the month
The parent Christianity WikiProject currently has 367 active members. We would like to welcome our newest members, Newchildrenofthealmighty, Evenssteven, Kerna96, and FutureTrillionaire. If any members, new or not, wish any assistance, they should feel free to leave a message at the Christianity noticeboard or with me or other individual editors to request it.
When did Jesus live? When did he die? How do we know? We do, in fact, have excellent information about the time intervals for the life and death of Jesus. As in other people who lived and died in the first century, this gives an approximate date range, but still, give or take 3-4 years and we have pretty good estimates confirmed by a number of really diverse sources, ranging from inscriptions in Delphi to Roman and Jewish sources. The Chronology of Jesus article discusses how a wide variety of Christian, Jewish and Roman sources are used to establish the time-frame for the life and death of Jesus.
And all of his data fits together. For instance, the chronology of Paul had been discussed based on the Book of Acts long ago, then the Delphi Inscription is found in the 20th century in the Temple of Apollo. And guess what.. it confirms it and totally dates his trial in Corinth, which helps reaffirm the date of the crucifixion of Jesus. The same date range is independently estimated from the writings of Josephus on the Baptist's death. And it fits Isaac Newton's astronomical models for the crucifixion date as well as the independent lunar calculations of Humphreys. As that article shows, all these dates just fit together.
From the bookshelf
This two volume book (with a very apt title) is gem-filled with scholarly research. Paul Maier's article in the first volume is a classic study on the chronology of Jesus and provides a useful summary of a number of issues.
