Get Involved


The world needs the good ideas in this site. If you would like to help, there are lots of opportunities. Here are a few examples:

  1. You can research and write explanations of words and phrases in the Word, or of whole Bible stories.
  2. Are you artistic? If so, you can illustrate concepts from the Word, or from Swedenborgian theology.
  3. Are you bilingual? Help us translate explanations. We're mostly English-based at the moment, but we don't intend to stay that way - we want to make a good study site for users in all the major languages.
  4. Are you a software developer? We're using a Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, PHP, Symfony stack. It's an interesting project, and easy to get involved in, and there's no lack of work!
  5. Do you have other ideas? Feedback?

Project News:


3 New Translations Dec 4, 2018:

We just had a chance to process/import 3 translations of Swedenborg's theological works from Rev. N. Bruce Rogers - Doctrine of the Lord, Doctrine of the Sacred Scripture, and Doctrine of Life. These works were really important in establishing a Biblical basis for the New Christian doctrine that Swedenborg was writing about.


Divine Wisdom in Dutch Nov 22, 2018:

Swedenborg wrote (but didn't publish) a short work entitled "De Divina Sapientia", or "The Divine Wisdom" in English. It was a precursor to "Divine Love and Wisdom", and it's not a polished work - but it IS interesting. Here's a link to "De Goddelijke Wijsheid", a Dutch translation by Anton Zelling, modernized by Guus Janssens in 2007, and linked to the Bible and others of Swedenborg's works today!


AC in Swedish! Nov 21, 2018:

Swedenborg wrote his theological works in Latin, so they could be widely read by the thought-leaders of his day. But, we're guessing that he'd be delighted to see them translated into his native Swedish. Here's the first piece we have of Swedenborg's biggest work, Arcana Caelestia, in Swedish. It provides insight into the inner meaning of Genesis 18-22, or Första Moseboken 18–22.


German UI Nov 19, 2018:

We just deployed an updated German user interface, thanks to one of our bilingual volunteer "friends of the project". So... with a UI, Bible translations, and 16 translations of Swedenborg's works in our system, German's getting to be a well-supported language for us - right up there with English, French, Portuguese, Dutch, and Czech. It's good!


L'Apocalypse Révélée Oct 18, 2018:

We just posted a French translation of Apocalypse Revealed, L'Apocalypse Révélée, with hyperlinks to scripture references. It's still a little rough in places, with some errors left from the scanning process, but... it's up there, and ready to help French-speakers figure out the inner spiritual meaning of John's apocalyptic visions.


More Bible Word Mapping Oct 9, 2018:

We're starting to ripple the symbolic meanings of Bible words into Dutch and German; the first batches of matched words just got posted over the weekend. Lots more to do, but this rippling process is working, and that's good!


Russian and Georgian UI Oct 8, 2018:

Thanks to our wonderful bilingual volunteers, we were able to deploy updates to our Russian and Georgian interfaces.


Japanese UI Oct 1, 2018:

We've just deployed a Japanese user interface. That makes 12 UIs so far, so New Christian ideas are becoming available to something like 4 billion people.
