This question arose yet again, this time in reference to this question that, at the time of this writing, remains open on Main:
- What do the "Goodrick-Kohlenberger" numbers represent? What features does this system offer in distinction from previous numbering systems?
Rather than having the same discussion in the library over and over again, I thought it might be good to document a votable discussion here.
A sampling of prior questions that in my mind fall into this category, currently on Main:
- What is morphological analysis, as it relates to Bible study?
- What distinguishes an excellent concordance?
- Where can I find Greek and Hebrew plain text sources?
- Looking for electronic copies of the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic texts, and electronic translation/analyses databases to interpret them
- Linking NT Greek to Hebrew through the LXX
- Critical Edition of Septuagint in Hebrew
On the other hand, this one was recently migrated to Meta (against the better judgement of at least two – I think exactly two – mods):
And there are a few other earlier ones on Meta:
- Reading Recommendations
- Any online Greek/Hebrew resources we can quote from?
- What good reference works on Biblical studies are available (freely) online?
- Which Bible translations are preferable/reliable for citing?
- To Interpret Koine Greek, which contemporary writers can be used for comparison?
(Feel free to add more if you recall them. I found it not an easy thing to search for.)
A few of these are just crummy questions for a Q&A format of any sort because they are list questions. However, some are reasonable, interesting, and answerable. Many of us, myself included, hesitate to close them. However, they are neither about analysis of the text nor about principles of hermeneutics.
Should these questions be on Main, on Meta, or closed altogether?
