Stemming from this meta post about the specific question: If we want to know what the Bible says about an issue, what methods can help us to find all the relevant scriptures? - which seems to have generated a diverse response from the community, it is suggested that we discuss questions of this type more generally. Can questions of a similar nature be on-topic for this site and if so, what principles will ensure they are well-formed?
These questions are fine as long as the're focused and answerable. For example I think all these questions would be acceptable:
- What is the 'Swedish Method' for studying the Bible?
- What is the history of the 'Swedish Method'?
- Why do some people say it is dangerous to do word studies?
- What is the Biblical/traditional basis for the historical-grammatical/analogical interpretation approaches?
- What interpretative methods did Billy Graham usually use?
