My original thought, carrying over from another thread I made (which has been very helpful in its responses, thank you to those who have been answering) was that I want to create an alternate version of the Bible. Now, to do that, I figure I probably need to have a good grasp on the Bible itself. I'm not religious by any means, but I think the concept is great, and it works well for certain things in my novel. Now, by having a good grasp, my thinking is that I need to have pretty much ALL the sections and passages saved as notes for reference. Is this necessary, to have every single portion? Or is there a better way to do this? Basically, is this completely insane of me? I'm not entirely well versed in Biblical things to begin with, so I don't have much of a head start. Opinions? What are the essentials, if not all parts are necessary.
