To reference a particular verse in a particular chapter in a book of the Bible, follow the URL naming conventions illustrated here. You have two methods of referencing available. You can reference a range of verses to be retrieved in block-quote format. (This method uses the CGI script behind the Bible Concordance.) Or, you can reference a verse within the HTML file for a specific chapter, retrieving all of the chapter as well.
The examples below illustrate both methods of reference, where BBB is the three letter mnemonic of the book, C is the chapter number, V is the verse number, and ssss is one of the versions of scripture listed above.
Using HTML Syntax:
You may also reference a single verse in block-quote format, as in example one below, or you may reference an entire chapter by ommiting the verse entirely, as in example two. Example three also shows how to reference an entire chapter by simply referencing the HTML for that chapter.
In the examples above which use the Concordance CGI script, 'wcconc.pl', the default for 'ssss' is 'kjvb' if it is omitted.Here's how your Bible study's HTML code might look:
We are currently reading through the book of John in the New Testament. This week we will be studying John, Chapter 12. Take a few moments to read through the passage of scripture, then come back, and we will try to get more insight into what John was writing about. Let's pray...
The raising of Lazarus from the dead was a pivotal miracle in the unfolding of events that were shortly to take place. This was the great sign that so many of the Jews had been asking for to validate Jesus' Messianic office. A man was dead and yet he lives! In John 12:1-11, a wonderful scene is painted for us by the writer John. An honorary dinner is held for Jesus, the miracle worker. Lazarus is there reclining at the table with Jesus. There is a buzz of activity outside the home of Mary and Martha, as the Jews come to see if Lazarus is truly alive. In the center of this scene, Mary is kneeling at the feet of Jesus, as she pours a bottle of costly perfume on His feet and wipes them with her flowing hair. The aroma fills the house and every one takes notice of Mary. Now Judas has not played a key roll up to this point in the life of Jesus. We learn that he has been in charge of the treasury, and often dipped his hand into the purse to satisfy his own selfish desires. Beginning in verse 4, we learn something about the heart of Judas.
Well, I hope this has been a help to you. I pray that the Lord would use this resource to reach the multitudes who still have not heard the good news of His great grace.
