What is Bible Data? 
Bible Data is the collection of internet bible resources. Each Bible Data has a BLS to match. So when user look any bible chapter, corresponding Bible Data will show below. 

What types do Bible Data have? 
So far Bible Data has these 
following types:

  • Commentary
  • Music
  • Gallery
  • Reference Verse
  • Daily Reading
  • Sermon
  • Other Data
    Not all type has data. I'll keep collecting data from internet. 

    Is all data here legally?
    Yes. I collection data only Public Domain license. If anyone find any data is not legally, please let me know. And, if you know any Public Domain data on Internet, or any institution can offer data without any copyright issue, I'll be happy to put this data in. 

    Can I help in data collection? 
    Sure. Thanks for any help. The quickest way is tell me where you can find the license-free data on internet.

Bible Data not working

Mike,

I have been using the good feature on Bible Data for commentary and reference verse. But it suddently stopped working a few days ago. Is there anything I need to do on my setup to fix this problem?

Thanks,

Norm

D7.12

Dear Mike,

I installed the Bible module 7.x-1.4 under Drupal 7.12 in March, 2012.
Everything worked after the installation until a week ago.
Without any upgrade, the Bible Data disappeard even on all my backed up sites.

Thank you for the fix

Dear Mike,

Thank you for the quick fix. It is working as before now. I am very pleased to have the Bible Data with the Bible module. Our church members are like it too. I will let you know when we come up with some suggestions.

Best Regards,

Norm

Custom Bible Data

Hello Mike,

I need your help with the bible data function. Is it possible to add custom bible data (eg. sermons/music from only one particular website) to a displayed Bible? How can this be achieved? Do I need to create a custom XML file, or should I send you the list of data and filter it somehow? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Steve

Are your bible data private or public?

Dear Steve:

   If your bible data is public, just send them to me, I'll put them for public usage. If these data can not use for public, that might do some work to modify module.

   If your data is NOT website link, I'll suggest use them as bible note

Custom Bible Data

Dear Mike,

The audio files that I would like to link to the Bible chapters are from the http://igehirdetes.ma website. These are public, but they are in Hungarian. I saw that the current bible data includes a lot of links, including Chinese ones, but I would like to filter (or provide only) these Hungarian links.

I thought that I might add all these links to your bible data, but there are hundereds of links and there are new links appearing every week. Since I would also like to frequently update this list at least weekly, I think that a custom bible data would be the best solution, I just do not know how to do it yet. What do you suggest?

The Bible Note is also a nice solution, but I think that the Bible Data function would be more suitable for what I need.

Steve

Test Run Data

Dear Mike,

I have created a sample data. It includes some links referring to Acts 1-4. I guess a language filter could make these visible in case no other Hungarian links are in your database. I will check it out tomorrow. Thanks!

Steve

File: 

Done.

Dear Steve:

   I've import these data. Please try.

Not Working

Dear Mike,

I tried to load the first four chapters of Acts, but no sermons appeared at all, only commentaries, music, and daily reading. I enabled all bible data and I did not filter out the languages. Are you able to see the Hungarian links?

Istvan

Need awhile to reindex

Dear Steve:

   After data import, system needs to do some reindex work. I've made it, please try again.

MikeLee

It is working

Dear Mike,

Thank you for all the help. It is working now, but I found out that these sermons are not entirely public domain. They are free to share, but they cannot be altered like public domain material. Sorry for the confusion.

Steve

If the sermons source allow external link....

Dear Steve:

   I think this link will help the sermons web sites become more well-known. And, most of our works are something like Search Engines, just help users to find their web-link, we do not store these data on our site. So I think we can go on for more works.

MikeLee

I see

Dear Mike,

The sermons can be linked externally, so that would not be an issue. I will consider this. There are a lot of links, and manually creating the correct Bible Data Format would be very tedious, so I have to think about it. Thanks again for the help!

Afrikaans Bible

Good day

Will you please create the Afrikaans Ou Vertaling bible file for this Drupal Bible Module?  The Afrikaans Ou Vertaling Bible is free on e-Sword, I believe it is also available from the www.bybel.co.za.

Thanks so much!
