1. Question Restatement:
Is the current scope too narrow to ever graduate to a full Stack Exchange site?
2. Quick Answer:
The current Scope is WAY too Narrow - and Solicits Primarily Christian Doctrines and Traditions.
AND - precludes general questions which could help equip researches to become better at Hermeneutics.
But - I feel that we should certainly maintain "objectivity" and "scholarship" as "our brand" - in order to avoid dogmatism and traditional presuppositions.
3. Allow Generalized Hermeneutic Questions:
Allow Systematic Biblical Language questions: How to Research, Hermeneutic Fallacies, Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, Chaldean, Mishnaic Hebrew, Coptic, whatever - as long as it is relevant and can contribute value to "Biblical Hermeneutics".
Example: In Gen. 6:3, Eccl. 2:4, and Psalms 68:18: The Hebrew, the LXX Greek, the Aramaic Targums Yonatan and Onkelos - all - translate "For Adam" differently - But, do these contexts favor one particular translation over others?
Note: I would also like Systematic Theology questions to be allowed, but moderated - ensuring that the Systematic Theology is expressed in terms of a specific Text.
4. Moderate Opinion Based Answers - Especially Answers from Religious Commentaries:
Although ancient opinions have incredible Historical Value, especially how things had been interpreted in the past - they should not be relied upon as "conclusive".
For example, this question, rewarded a bounty for an answer based exclusively from a commentary - which is heavily dependent on presupposed Christian traditions and doctrines - and excludes all contemporary Greek and Jewish literature.
In that case I would have loved to see more answers providing linguistic analysis, contemporary literary examples, or even extra-biblical examples from Jewish, Greek, and Christian liturgies.
But, that motivation is removed - because the bounty clearly affirmed the type of Answer being sought, (from tradition and Christian doctrine).
5. Expand to "Biblical Humanities":
Personally, I would love to see St. John of the Cross' mysticism tied in with Job, or Hildegard of Bingen in the context of Daniel. Reconciling a Papal Bull, or ruling with Scripture. Martin Luther's 99 theses in view of Biblical Literature. How the Books of Enoch, Sefer Raziel, etc, and the connection to the Babylon Exile. Astrology and Jacob's blessing - Israel's encampment mirroring the Kodiak. How Zoroastrian theology is seen in Messianic prophecies or Temple worship. Gilgamesh and Noah. Babylonian theology and Israel, (and the Pharasaic movement post-Ezra), and so on.
6. That can all be accomplished by a friendly reminder above the "Answer Box":
Answers Must Cite and Rely Upon an Attainable Authority;
Answers Must Avoid Personal Opinions - and even Reliance on the Opinions of Others should point to their underlying evidences;
Note: Obviously exceptions exist and should be managed organically.
