biggrin   messianic writeings modules....
hey all!

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 know that you have both the JPS (jewish publication society) version of the Tanach already coded as a module, and also the orthadox jewish new testament. so they would be ready to plug into the module interface.

also i was wondering if you could include a module for a siddure for shabbat, and the jewish festivals. which they also have on the orthadox messainic website as well... www.afii.org
and also a passover haggadah.

and for some really cool commentarys, like rashi, which they have his writtings and teaching on www.chabad.org another good jewish commentator to make a plugin for is Bal haturim... they might also have his stuff on the sight as well.

thanks ;-) this would give the sword project some really cool material to add to an already awesome program.... i have used it much in my christianity and world presectives class.

Re: messianic writeings modules....
Good project idea, especially if people can read it in English. Rm 11.15

Looks like the developers are too busy to do it though. Maybe hire some eager grad students to do the tagging?

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.
