There was recently a question asked:
We don't really have any guidelines about questions of this type.
- This question is clearly not about doctrine (so it passes that test).
- Also, I don't think it's about history surrounding the Bible, since the topic is clearly directly in the Bible.
- Also, it's not about the culture and times that the Bible was written (since it's about the people that are in the Bible explicitly).
- Also, it's not about understanding the intentions of the author, since it's a question of motivation of the subject.
This seems to be a new type of question:
Questions about the thoughts/intentions of the people in the Bible.
Is this question on topic?
