New Feature Added: Gospel Link

A little over a month ago, I began working on a project for the RCV website that would help readers locate matching passages between the four Gospels. Today, I completed that project. If you go to any of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke are the best examples, as John is structured differently from the other three), scroll down to the bottom of the page to the Comments section. There, you will find comments where each is titled, Gospel Link. The passages that follow are the passages from the other Gospels that are of the same content, or as close as possible. For instance, the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist can be found in Matthew 3:13-17. If you look in the Comments section, you'll find a Gospel Link for that passage, which indicates that the baptism of Jesus is also found in Mark 1:9-11 and Luke 3:21-23. Since John's Gospel doesn't follow the same pattern as the other three Gospels, the Gospel Links to John, where available, are often their own separate Gospel Link. This has been a fun project to complete and I hope you find it useful.
