"There are also many other
things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do
not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written."

Using ATLA Bible
The most useful full-text
index for scripture research is the ATLA Religion Index. (ATLA = American
Theological Library Association) Access it as follows:
From the library’s homepage, go to the list of electronic databases (http://library.stjohnsem.edu/databases_alpha.htm)
and click on FirstSearch. Click on the drop down menu beside “Jump to
advanced search,” then click on ATLA.
To view the latest issue of the journals on this list, click the drop down
menu and choose source. Type in the title of the journal. Scroll down and
type in the year (e.g., 2004). You will retrieve a list of articles
published in the journal during that year.
(3) If you are searching for articles regardless of the source, you may search by subject or keyword. If you’re searching for a particular scripture verse, choose scripture citation from the drop down menu. It is important that you phrase your scripture search correctly. For instance, if you are looking for material on verses 1 and 2 in First Corinthians, the correct phrasing would be Corinthians, 1st 1-2.
Notes from the Librarian on Interlibrary Loan:
Look over your citations carefully before requesting an inter library loan so that you don’t mistakenly order book reviews or letters to the editor when they really want articles. And when using the ATLA index, pay attention to the source since some of the journals may not be appropriate (e.g., evangelical). When in doubt, check with the professor first before submitting the ILL.
