I think it's questionable whether those engaged in this sort of enterprise
could restrict themselves tightly to matters concerning the Biblical Greek
text: we don't do theology and textual criticism, and exegesis is made
difficult by the very broad range of hermeneutical, critical assumptions
that list-members bring to bear upon the Biblical text. So long as we keep
the focus on the Biblical Greek text and language we are more likely to be
able to be helpful to each other.
