Some Wikipedians have formed Wikiproject Bible to better organize information in articles related to The Bible. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians.
As a group, we do not prefer any particular tradition or interpretation of the Bible, but endeavor that all Biblical teachings, historical accounts, and prophecy are fairly and accurately represented. If you'd like to join and become a part of this project, sign the Membership Page.
11 easy steps to producing at least a B article
Starting from scratch and want to know how to take it from "0 to 60"? Follow these helpful tips! Some parts are also useful for already-existing articles.
Since categories at the bottom of the articles interwiki linked in your article may be appropriate to place in your article, go through each interwiki link in your article and review the categories at the bottom of the linked article for inclusion in your article.
Confirm that the interwiki links, footnotes, and external (non-wiki) links in your article go where you want them to go.
Post an article request at Wikipedia:Requested articles for each broken (red) interwiki link in your article OR remove the double brackets around the broken interwiki link OR write that article as well (these are your only three choices).
As with any Wikipedia project, be aware of other sources and consolidate information in the appropriate places. Collaborate with related projects, wikis, and websites and be respectful of people's differing opinions. See particularly WikiProjects Judaism and Countering systemic bias in religion
Covinben (talk) 00:24, 18 November 2008 (UTC) My focus is Early Christian Languages, Biblical Text, and Exegetical Tradition. I have a special interest and emphasis on Discourse Analysis and the Jerusalem letters.
Dcollins52([[User talk: Dcollins52|talk}})16:27, 28 November 2008 (UTC) I am a Christian and know a ton of stuff about the Bible, but I am not exactly a Bible buff.
Hendersonsage (talk) 12:32, 7 June 2009 (UTC)I'm a religion major at UNC Pembroke. I have a broad area of expertise including; Higher Criticism (especially source criticism), How the Bible was written/History of the Bible, Different cannons and there development, Historical/cultural back ground of Old/New Testament, and Apocrypha and Psuedepigrapha (especially the Gospel of Thomas).
Jaden1138 (talk) 15:08, 16 July 2009 (UTC) I am a Non-Denominational Evangelical Christian with a love for the Bible and for people. Also I graduated with honors in English from high school so I can help by correcting English spelling and grammatical errors when I see them. I am also a self-taught graphic artist and if I am needed, I can create graphics for this site. But I may need help with copyrighting. I do have a Creative Commons Copyright account for my artwork, if that is useful here.
EncycloPetey (talk) 03:56, 10 December 2011 (UTC) Since I'm working, I might as well list myself. I have a minor in Biblical Studies, and have taught Bible customs, the history of the Jewish kingdoms, the exile / return, and the major prophets. I have a good knowledge of Latin, and some experience with Koine Greek. I own several translations in several languages.
JohnChrysostom (talk) 02:10, 18 December 2011 (UTC) I've a BA in Philosophy and Comparative Religions, and am pursuing graduate studies as a Latin-rite Catholic seminarian. I can read Pseudo-Attic (i.e. Plato) and Koine Greek as well as Classical, Medieval, and Ecclesiastical Latin. Study of the Bible is a personal passion, rivaling my passion for philosophy, theology and ancient history. I own all of the major and most of the minor English translations (DRC, KJV, ASV, Knox, CCD, RSV, RSV-CE, RSV-2CE, Jerusalem Bible, NAB, NIV 1984, NASB, NKJV, NJB, REB, NRSV, NLT, OSB, NETS, NABRE, etc.), several versions in other languages, the Clementina and Nova Vulgatae, as well as most of the Greek source texts (W&H, NA27/UBS4, TR, Hodges-Farstad Majority Text, Rahlf's Septuagint, Brenton's LXX), with the exception of the Gottingen LXX. I have on hand also most ancient pagan and Jewish sources referring to the Christians or Jesus, the 38-volume collection of the Fathers, etc. if anyone needs anything referenced. If I would have to declare areas of expertise or specialty in specifically Biblical studies (without crossing in to theology or ecclesiastical history or the Fathers, where there is some overlap), it would be in the LXX, the OT canon, the non-canonical texts of the intertestamental and NT periods/pseudepigrapha, and the NT canon, with several other subjects in close proximity.
DoctorLazarusLong (talk) 16:13, 20 March 2012 (UTC) Anthropology major, but long standing student of Biblical exegesis. Wrote my last major capstone essay on what the canonical Bible says about the afterlife vs what has come into Christian afterlife mythos from other sources.
Drchrisheard (talk) 23:52, 24 August 2012 (UTC) Assoc. Prof. of Religion at Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA. Areas of specialty: Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, especially Genesis and other narrative texts.
