Not many people have had the privalage to use a wiki for keeping their notes. You will be amazed at the possibilities these types of notes carry. see: home:UserGuide
This Introduction file is itself a PCARR wiki note
To begin, there is a personal note folder mypad:MyPad . You create a initial page with a user or group name in CamelCase. Once created, you can create additional note pages automatically linked back to you user page.
These notes can be anything of interest to you. They are simple plain text files but, can take on a whole new life using some simple to learn syntax (see HelpFile).
Mark, Gospel according to @ It is the current and apparently well-founded tradition that Mark derived his information mainly from the discourses of Peter. In his mother's house he would have abundant opportunities of obtaining information from the other apostles and their coadjutors, yet he was "the disciple and interpreter of Peter" specially. As to the time when it was written, the Gospel furnishes us with no definite information. Mark makes no mention of the destruction of Jerusalem, hence it must have been written before that event, and probably about A.D. 63. The place where it was written was probably Rome. Some have supposed Antioch (comp. kjv@Mark:15:21 with kjv@Acts:11:20). It was intended primarily for Romans. This appears probable when it is considered that it makes no reference to the Jewish law, and that the writer takes care to interpret words which a Gentile would be likely to misunderstand, such as, "Boanerges" (3:17); "Talitha cumi" (5:41); "Corban" (7:11); "Bartimaeus" (10:46); "Abba" (14:36); "Eloi," etc. (15:34). Jewish usages are also explained (7:3; 14:3; 14:12; 15:42). Mark also uses certain Latin words not found in any of the other Gospels, as "speculator" (6:27, rendered, A.V., "executioner;" R.V., "soldier of his guard"), "xestes" (a corruption of sextarius, rendered "pots," 7:4,8), "quadrans" (12:42, rendered "a farthing"), "centurion" (15:39,44, 45). He only twice quotes from the Old Testament (1:2; 15:28). The characteristics of this Gospel are, (1) the absence of the genealogy of our Lord, (2) whom he represents as clothed with power, the "lion of the tribe of Judah." (3.) Mark also records with wonderful minuteness the very words (3:17; 5:41; 7:11-34; 14:36) as well as the position (9:35) and gestures (3:5,34; 5:32; 9:36; 10:16) of our Lord. (4.) He is also careful to record particulars of person (1:29,36; 3:6,22, etc.), number (5:13; 6:7, etc.), place (2:13; 4:1; 7:31, etc.), and time (1:35; 2:1; 4:35, etc.), which the other evangelists omit. (5.) The phrase "and straightway" occurs nearly forty times in this Gospel; while in Luke's Gospel, which is much longer, it is used only seven times, and in John only four times. "The Gospel of Mark," says Westcott, "is essentially a transcript from life. The course and issue of facts are imaged in it with the clearest outline." "In Mark we have no attempt to draw up a continuous narrative. His Gospel is a rapid succession of vivid pictures loosely strung together without much attempt to bind them into a whole or give the events in their natural sequence. This pictorial power is that which specially characterizes this evangelist, so that 'if any one desires to know an evangelical fact, not only in its main features and grand results, but also in its most minute and so to speak more graphic delineation, he must betake himself to Mark.'" The leading principle running through this Gospel may be expressed in the motto: "Jesus came...preaching the gospel of the kingdom" kjv@Mark:1:14). "Out of a total of 662 verses, Mark has 406 in common with Matthew and kjv@Luke:145 with kjv@Matthew:60 with Luke, and at most 51 peculiar to itself." (See MATTHEW.)
JONAH - The Old Testament counterpart of kjv@John:3:16, this book declares the universality of God’s love embracing even pagan nations. Its authorship and historicity are disputed. If one is willing to accept the miraculous, there is no compelling reason to deny its historicity. There is a strong possibility that the book is about Jonah and not by him. The author relates how Jonah refused God’s call to preach to the people of Nineveh, his punishment for this disobedience, his ready response to a second summons, and his bitter complaint at God’s sparing the city following her repentance. Christ Himself alludes to Jonah when speaking of His own death and Resurrection ( kjv@Matthew:12:39, kjv@Matthew:16:4; kjv@Luke:11:29-32 ).
RSS stands for "Real Simple Syndication". Most modern Web browsers and email programs have RSS capablity as well as many stand alone clients. pBiblx2 users can use this capability to collect - aggregate new content feeds from any number of other pBiblx2 servers. If you frequently visit certain pBiblx2 sites and only want to see what is new since your last visit, this is an excellent means of doing just that.
When a new PCARR file is created, a RSS feed entry is created for that file as well. As there are separate feeds for each division of PCARR (rss:HOME , rss:PCARR , rss:RRR , rss:NOTES , etc), users can keep up to date with particular sections of interest of your content.
Other pBiblx2 administrators can also track new PCARR content and download content to add on to their sites using this simple syndication method.
While the standard pBiblx2 single pane interface is nice for most casual uses, you'll probably want to use multiple panes for more serious study and note taking.
There are a couple ways of doing this:
Opening multiple browser windows or tabs.
Right click on link
Remember all your browser features (history/bookmarks/text searches) are still functional and advantageous.
For the HTML authors - designing their own framed interface
Work has begun to implement pBiblx2 components in framed and iframe pages that can either be added to your current web pages or used to develop your own workspace html from the ground up. See home:PbiblxWebDesign for further details.
