This stack exchange community has great idea

Read a passage of the Bible, reflect on it, consult a commentary if necessary, and find a discussion on this site that relates to it.

I'm not a member of this community, but if there's someone around here who wants to take charge of such a project, I would be happy to contribute a chapter or two! (How many people or chapters per person would we need to complete such a project?)

    The Christian Bible is huge. – 3961 Jun 20 at 15:35
  • Honestly, I'm not clear on what the point is either on that site or on this one. – Kyralessa Jun 27 at 7:56
  • @Kyralessa I can't speak to this site, but I can explain what we're doing on Mi Yodeya. First, organized learning programs (studying each book of the Hebrew bible, or an entire tractate of talmud, or all of the mishna (part of the talmud), etc) are traditional in Judaism & end with a celebration. Second, we have a teaching that at the age of 5 one begins to learn torah, at 10 mishna, at 15 g'mara, and so on. Against that backdrop, the site will be having its tenth birthday at the end of this year, so we're following that learning program (i.e. learn mishna) and distributing it so we do it all. – Monica Cellio Nov 11 at 4:23

I was thinking a while ago that we should start a Catechism, but maybe a Concordance would a a better (and more Ecumenical) way of doing things. This is a great idea, we might want to start with a Google Docs sheet and seed a few answers before opening it up to the whole community (or just expecting people to participate) If it gets going, we mods can tag it to the right menu on the main site and it can be a thing.

    Sorry, but I don't really understand what your proposal is. – K-HB Jun 16 at 18:47
  • @k-HB, an index of Answers with Biblical references for different topics – Peter Turner Jun 17 at 3:03
  • What do you want to do wiht Google Docs and what do you want to tag where? I have seen the project on judaism.SE. What exactly do you want? – K-HB Jun 17 at 10:08

    A different idea fwiw is a study group -- e.g. people (in the group) agree on a text to study, read it and then ask and real questions about it they may have. Often (i.e. on more than one site I've seen that) a group like that will book, e.g. one chapter per week. And they can answer the answer the questions because they've read the same book. – ChrisW Jul 29 at 14:06
