Re: messianic writeings modules....
i was wondering if it would be all possable to create modules for the sword project for people who do Torah study to the "parashat" 3 year torah cycle?
there is a website that has a ton of info for the 3 year cycle,
www.ahavta.org ... what i was wondering if there was a way to make a devotinal plugin that would parse that weeks torah, haf-torah (the prophets), tehillim (psalms), birit haddashah (new testament), and also mishna, and talmud readins for that week.
I was advised that in order to make a custom devotional, the most straightforward way is to use an existing devotional like DBD, and replace the text and links with your own text and links. I believe Karl posted to me on this.
The tricky part in my mind would be to set up the 3-year cycle, since Sword devotionals use a goyishe 365-day cycle.
But as it says, when Israel is grafted back in, that is life from the dead. There needs to be a way to do this.
My personal puzzle is that I want to automate a daily reading from Mishlei (Proverbs). There are 375 proverbs from chs. 10 to 22. Not counting leap days, which I don't understand yet, the cycle repeats 45 times in 44 lunar years.
What I have in mind is more like stepping through a verse list, and starting over when you are done. This would be a solution that you could probably use too.
It would be cool if you could link the Sword calendar functions for your devotional to a Hebrew calendar plugin on your computer. One that I have located is the Debian Linux package hebcal. There must be more--what do they do in Israel?
I'm sure plenty of people would appreciate this feature if it were made known how to set it up.
