In your example, you showed the following: "In 1 Cor. 13:1 (New International Version), the Bible states that of the three virtues of love, faith, and hope, love is the greatest." This brings up two questions: Is it acceptable to use abbreviations for books of the Bible within the text? I have been using the abbreviation in parenthetical citations but spelling the book out in the text. My understanding is that one should not begin a sentence with a numeral. If I begin with the book that is numbered, such as in your example, which of the following would be correct: (a.) 1 Cor. 13:1 states that love is the greatest virtue. (b.) First Cor. 13:1 states that love is the greatest virtue. Thank you! Your post and replies have been so helpful!

This is a tad off topic, but if a journal has a subtitle, should it be included in the reference. For example: Early, C. (2017). Philosophical anthropology, ethics, and love: Toward a new religion and science dialogue. Zygon, 52, 847-863. doi:10.1111/zygo.12351 Or should it be ...Zygon: Journal of Religion & Science, 52, 847-863. doi:10.1111/zygo.12351 Thanks.

You stated above that "for your first in-text citation, whether it is general or a direct quote or paraphrase, identify the version you used, if that is relevant. You do not need to repeat the version name in subsequent references." How would you handle a comparison of versions. The main Bible I will be using is the English Standard Version, so I would cite it the first time. Then I want to compare it to the New International Version.The rest of the essay will use the English Standard Version. For example: God is the transcendent God in contrast to local deities: "Am I a God at hand, declares the LORD, and not a God far away?" (Jeremiah 23:23 ESV). ..."God's peace, which transcends understanding, will guard hearts and minds in Christ" (Philippians 4:7 NIV). ..."And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom" (1 Corinthians 2:1 ESV). As I continue on in the discussion, will I need to identify the version each time? I plan on comparing a verse in the RSV as well, but the main version I will be using is the ESV. What would be the best way to handle this?
