Main Ting

Peopo dat talk da Hawai`i kine local Pidgin can use dis Web place fo find out mo plenny bout da Bible. Get odda peopo too dat talk English kine, but dey can kinda read da Pidgin if dey like.

Can use wateva Web browsa program yoa computa get. Da mos easy one is da latest kine Mozilla Firefox fo PC, Safari fo da Mac.

Us guys put all dis hea, fo make um easy fo read da Christian Bible in da Pidgin language. Fo find all kine stuff, dis mo easy fo you, den jus da print kine book. Get diffren kine ways fo find tings inside da Bible wit dis Prophero compyuta program dat oua friend John Thomson make. Da yellow lis you see da lef side dis page, give you three diffren ways fo find wat you looking fo.

How Fo Move Aroun

  1. If you make click on top one book name, you goin get one lis wit da title fo ery section inside dat book. Jalike show wass inside da whole book. Ery section title, if you make click dea, Prophero take you to da section.
  2. If you make click on top da chapta number undaneat one book name, Prophero take you dat chapta, verse 1. Den you can scroll um down wit da arrow key to any odda verse inside da chapta.
  3. Some books get short introduction dat tell stuff like who write um, wat time, how come dey write um, wass da book about, an da main parts a da book. You can click on top da blue link fo take you dat section.
  4. Da go back line on top da browsa take you back to wateva you stay look at befo.
  5. Get one white tab ova da yellow lis lef side. You make click dea, take you back da top a da book.
  6. You can go any book you like from da yellow lis. Get one green tab nea da top lef side a the main part a da page fo tell you wat book you stay in, like Rome. Can help you wen you stay inside da middo a one big book, o wen you jump aroun from one place to anodda place.

Odda Kine Stuff

  1. One blue line undaneat da book name, chapta, an verse, wit some a da titles fo sections, show wea get same same kine words in diffren books, jalike wen different guys tell da same story mo den one place. All ova Matthew, Mark, an Luke get da kine. You ony need make click fo go check out da same story in odda place. Fo practice, use da yellow lis fo find Luke 3:21. Den go make click fo see the odda places dat tell da story bout wat happen wen John baptize Jesus. If da book an chapta an verse not translate yet, den no mo da blue line undaneat, sorry, yeah? But bumbye we get um.There are two kinds of footnotes in the e-alkitab. The first are cross references, to the source of an Old Testament quote, or allusion, or to where something similar is said. Again, unless they refer to Old Testament books not yet translated, then the cross references referring to that book are all active links.The cross reference series is marked with superscript lower case letters, a, b, c, d, e,… They restart the alphabet at each chapter. If the user simply hovers the mouse over one of these cross reference markers, the contents of the cross reference will pop up in a box with a pastel yellow background. If the user wants to follow the chain of active links, they simply click on the reference marker which takes them to the actual footnote, highlighted in blue to distinguish it from all the other footnotes. Then click again on the active link of the passage they want. As an exercise, go to the cross reference in the Kupang language in Luke 3:22 and chase the active links.
  2. If da alphabets too small fo yoa eye, some Web browse programs let you make mo big. Go make click on View, Text Size, Increase, o View, Zoom.

Word An Verses

Some church leada guys use one book dey call Bible concordance fo find all da places wea da Bible use some word. But az one big heavy book, English, an cos plenny. Da Prophero compyuta program make um so anybody dat like study da Bible, anybody dat talk Pidgin an get compyuta an Internet can use um fo dea own language.

  4. Make click on top dark. You goin see da verse fo all da places dat say dark, dat show inside da top part, right side. Move down thru da lis wit da arrow key o da mouse an da up an down scroll bar.

Plenny mo peopo dat talk local kine, get compyuta now, an can read stuff from da World Wide Web. Da younga people, nowdays dey all know how fo use compyuta. Dis make da Prophero kine Bible look real good fo da high school an university kine students, cuz make dea jaw drop. But even one kahu guy Timor Island side, wea dey get same kine ting fo dea language, wen smile real big an tell, “Eh, brah, gotta beef me fo get back dis one!” Anodda kahu look kinda worry an tell, “If oua church peopo can use someting lidis, den us kahu guys gotta take care plenny wen we make ready one sermon.” But he smile wen he say dat, cuz he get his own Prophero CD awready.
