A recent question asked for references from Greek literary texts, and other Scriptural texts - explaining the definition of a particular word : Ephesians 4:30 - What does it mean to "Grieve the Holy Spirit"?.
Yes - I completely agree that this is "Searching for a Text" - but certainly not in the same sense as "Where does the Bible Say?"
This is a key part of Lexical Semantics - identifying occurrences of Glosses to truly understand what words meant, in certain contexts, cultures, and periods of time :
Gloss, from Wikipedia - (from Latin glossa; from Greek γλῶσσα (glóssa), meaning 'language') is a brief notation, especially a marginal one or an interlinear one, of the meaning of a word or wording in a text. It may be in the language of the text, or in the reader's language if that is different.
A very famous Gloss of the word "Faith" :
NASB, Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old gained approval.
The objection resulting in "Searching for a Text" closure, was :
But asking for other "Scripture" is different altogether. "Scripture" is a religious belief that the texts are divinely inspired and part of an intentional single work.
Why is asking for Literary Greek glosses or Biblical Glosses off-topic? When it is the primary element of lexical semantics?
Asking how Scripture comments on itself - it seems - might be the very first place to start Scriptural hermeneutics.
