I've noticed some questions being quickly closed as opinion-based or too broad, even though there is a precedent for the success of such questions. These closures seem to be mostly recent, and frequently voted to close by the same small set of users.
A clear example of this phenomenon is demonstrated in exegesis questions, which often have titles like "What did Jesus mean by _______?", or "What does _______ mean?" In fact, there are a lot of successful questions of this type in the exegesis tag. However, it seems to me that some recent questions of similar style are the target of closure from these users.
Examples of successful questions:
Here is an example of a recently closed question:
It was asked in 2011 accepted an answer written in 2014, and closed just last month. Did these previous completed questions just fall through the cracks, is there actually a precedent for some exegesis questions closed as too broad or opinion based to be answered, or are these questions not similar for some reason?
