Wiring an engine outside of a jeep help

Hi guys! My Grandfather recently gave me an iron duke gm 151 engine. I have the motor and transmission but no frame or jeep yet. I was wondering how I can set up my wiring so that i cant start the engine and have it run a minute or so. I have wiring coming off the starter solenoid, the alternator, and the distributor. I am completely confused on how I can hot wire this so it will run and not just turn the engine over. There is a negative battery wire grounded to the block, a thick red wire coming from the starter solenoid, a small red and a small blue wire coming from the starter solenoid, then a medium red wire running from the starter solenoid to the back of the alternator, a medium red wire from the back of the alternator to the side of the alternator, a small black wire coming from the alternator and finally one red wire coming from the distributor. sorry for the back pictures and long explanation, any help is greatly appreciated.

here is a link to my engine wiring picture to help out.
