The Bible[edit]

  • Barnabas
  • Bible citation, linking abbreviations to biblical books. E.g. Gen., Exd., 1Cr. 2Cr.
  • The Books of the Bible, linking each book with a consistent link to read it at Bible Gateway.
    • E.g: {{biblegateway|1|Corinthians}}
    • Ensuring that the commonly searched-for Bible book names exist and redirect to the articles on those books.
    • Making the lists in External links sections appear fair and have the NPOV.

My Wikipedia Notes[edit]

How to link to Project Gutenberg[edit]

This is explained at http://www.gutenberg.org/howto-link

Example of a good way to link/cite from [Project Gutenberg]]:

How to link to Bible Gateway[edit]

This is explained at http://www.biblegateway.com/usage/

Examples
A book: http://www.biblegateway.com/bible?language=English&Version=NIV&passage=John
A passage: http://www.biblegateway.com/bible?language=English&Version=NIV&passage=John+3
Multiple passages: http://www.biblegateway.com/bible?language=English&Version=NIV&passage=John+3:16-17;1John+3:16
Some verses: http://www.biblegateway.com/bible?language=English&Version=NIV&passage=John+3:16-17
Multiple passages: http://www.biblegateway.com/bible?language=English&Version=NIV&passage=John+3:16-17;1John+3:16
A search for ALL words: http://www.biblegateway.com/keyword/?search=Jesus%20love&version1=31&searchtype=all&wholewordsonly=yes

(Search for "Jesus" AND "love")

Using the biblegateway template[edit]

I have encapsulated linking to Bible Gateway in a Wikipedia template: see Template:biblegateway.

Note — the template has two pipes "|" in it. This allows the clean substitutions of book names with a space, e.g. 1 John.

Examples
{{biblegateway||John}} {{biblegateway|John}}
{{biblegateway|1|John}} {{biblegateway|1|John}}
{{biblegateway||John+3}} {{biblegateway|John+3}}
{{biblegateway||John+3:16-17}} {{biblegateway|John+3:16-17}}
{{biblegateway||John+3:16-17;1John+3:16}} {{biblegateway|John+3:16-17;1John+3:16}}

Note — the template does not work for the Song of Solomon unless you refer to it as SongOfSolomon: {{biblegateway|SongOfSolomon}}.
