Hi, John. I've noticed you're helping out with the Bible project, which is great! One little thing: can you use quotation marks where appropriate? I've noticed in verses you translate, you leave out quotation marks for quotes. The only reason they don't appear in the KJV is that they hadn't been invented yet, but they really help make things a little clearer. Thanks! JacobB 19:52, 10 October 2009 (EDT)
- Hi, I see you've done a lot of work on the Luke 1-8 (Translated), and wanted to ask, are you working on more proposed translations, or do you mind if I help out a little? You are doing a great job and I don't want to step in the middle of your work if you've already got some more text planned! thanks! :-) Taj 17:56, 11 October 2009 (EDT)
- Go ahead! I was mostly working on Chapter 8. JohnFraiser 18:04, 11 October 2009 (EDT)
Thanks for your contributions. I look forward to learning more from your insights.--Andy Schlafly 19:39, 14 October 2009 (EDT)
- Thank you. I hope I've been useful in providing some groundwork for the Gospel of Luke. JohnFraiser 19:46, 14 October 2009 (EDT)
In case you didn't know it, I'm now the administrator-in-charge of this Project, under the authority of Mr. Schlafly.
I see that you've been concentrating on the Gospel According to Luke. Have you any plans to translate the Acts of the Apostles?
And while I'm on the subject, let me set forth my qualifications. I can read ancient Greek almost as fast as I can read modern English. If you want to see some samples of my work, check out the Matthew and Mark articles, which are now complete. I did Matthew almost all by myself, within a week. I've also begun studying classical Hebrew, so that I can work on the Old Testament.
What background have you in the ancient languages of the Bible? I assume you have some. And what made you start with Luke in particular?
Please reply on my own talk page.
Thanks for reverting vandal. --Jpatt 20:43, 23 October 2009 (EDT)

- You're most welcome! A shame that my first edits after my break were removing vandalism, but the legions of trolls seem endless. JohnFraiser 12:51, 16 November 2009 (EST)
