each in brackets as shown above. In the actual text of a paper you need to follow proper grammatical and style requirements. Here are some correct examples of how to cite references or allusions from the Bible. Luke wrote to Theophilus in verse four of his first chapter so that his patron would have a more exact understanding of the details of the salvation offered also to the Gentiles. Luke claims that he wrote his Gospel, “in consecutive order,” after having “investigated everything carefully from the beginning”
(Luke 1:3). In verse one of Chapter One, Luke seems to be aware of previous Gospel accounts, but in Luke 1:2, he claims that he has information from eyewitnesses. You will note in the previous example that you are permitted to use standard biblical references 13 like Luke 1:2 within a sentence as long as you introduce it as a biblical reference rather than as part of your text. The abbreviations for the books of the Bible can be used only in parentheses within the text or in footnotes.5 For example, you may make a reference to Romans 1:16, but if you state that Christians should not be ashamed of the gospel (Rom 1:16), then you should use the abbreviation within parentheses. The following examples are all correct: Paul, in verse sixteen of Chapter One of his Epistle to the Romans, states that he is not ashamed of the gospel; Paul states that he is not ashamed of the gospel (Rom 1:16); and in Romans 1:16, Paul states that he is not ashamed of the gospel. Map, Photography, Figure, or Table If you are citing a map, photograph, figure, or table, see section 19.1.8.2 (250). Crediting Authors of Chapters in Edited Collections In Turabian format, you are required to credit the author of each individual chapter of an edited collection that you gleaned material from; each of those would be individual references. See section 19.1.9.2 of your Turabian manual (251). Numbering Any number used in the text that is less than one hundred and any whole number of hundreds should be spelled completely within the body of the paper (seventeen, eighty-one, one 5 Turabian includes a comprehensive list of abbreviations for the books of the Bible in sections 24.6.1- 24.6.4 (10.44, 10.45, 10.47, and 10.48). Some professors, however, prefer that students consult the SOD’s Writing Guide, Appendices A and B: Sacred Book Reference List and Capitalization Guide. Be sure to clarify what your professor expects. 14 hundred, two hundred, etc.).6 Generally, if the number can be written with one or two words, it should be spelled completely. For numbers written with more than two words (i.e., 108 or 210), numerals should be used. However, you should never mix the styles. If any number used in a string of numbers must be written with numerals, then all should be in the same style (i.e., 98, 108, 210, 300; not ninety-eight, 108, 210, three hundred). Of note there is an exception that when writing percentages in the text, you would write 98 percent or 100 percent, and so forth; always using the numeral, but writing out “percent.” Permalinks Some resources have permalinks available. They may appear as a paperclip or linkedchains icon, or by the word Permalink. This webpage explains more. The age of internet technology has significantly increased the
