Places (Jerusalem, Bethlehem)


Verbum Help (Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2018).

  1. Non-Biblical people is non-nonsensically under Biblical entities between people and places.
  2. Author guide is not listed as a Factbook content type. There may be others as well - I don't know a quick way to check.
  3. The list of sections in Factbook is out of date. For example, the entry for the river Jordan has sections media, semantic roles, journals, sermons which are not listed as available sections in Help.

Author Guide isn't a Factbook content type. They're entirely separate resources that live in the library (series:"faithlife author guide"). They're not even linked from the Factbook.

If you notice it's formatted the same way Biblical People and Places are formatted, its a seperate heading so it's not under Biblical People. I'll note to update sections such as Semantic Roles and Media, it might not be until a later update as the focus is on getting contect written for the context menu.

I didn't notice that the copy misrepresents the problem. "Non-Biblical people is non-nonsensically under Biblical entities between people and places." It is being under Biblical Entities that is the problem. It is not under Biblical people, simply after them. The "Type of Biblical Entities" heading and the placement of the other non-Biblical entities led me to that conclusion.

That is a valid point, I'll look at retitling the section.
