Last week, I proposed a challenge to ask more questions. And I thought I'd make another challenge this week.

Friday, November 11 at 11am marks the 93rd anniversary of the Armistice between the Allies and Germany. Even up to the last minute, the terrible fighting raged on in "the war to end wars". Would that it were so.

The Bible (the Tanakh and New Testament) talk often about peace: our failure to find it and our hope, from God, to achieve it. Shalom is much more than just an absence of conflict, but a deep and powerful well-being. In the face of the evil in the world, let's remember peace—shalom.

Please use if you happen to ask a question that fits in the next week. Also, I suggest linking back to this question in the comments so we can build some momentum for the challenge.

  • I've kicked this off with a question about Melchizedek. Commented Nov 4, 2011 at 19:52
  • Here's another question. This time from a prophesy in Daniel. Commented Nov 7, 2011 at 17:34

My vote is to create a tag. It's a large enough concept that it should garner a number of questions even if not a lot. I think topical tags would be helpful for anyone doing biblical theology or even just a topical study, which is why I created, for instance, a tag. I feel like it provides a quick way to access all the tough questions on a topic.

  • Oh! I guess I was overly worried that my little project would pollute the tag pool. If this seems to not be a problem with most people, I'll change my advice. (Thanks for the feedback.) Commented Nov 4, 2011 at 21:55
