Personally, I consider all canonical (and some non-canonical) Biblical texts to be explicitly Jewish. We are looking for those that are academically inclined to join us.

TL;DR: If you’d like to contribute your expertise, then please message the moderators at r/AskBibleScholars and we would be happy to talk to you about becoming a member of our panel of scholars.

Here’s a little more background information about my self, the founder of r/AskBibleScholars, and what this community strives to become.

Approximately three years ago I happened to stumble into r/AcademicBiblical. Prior to this I had been studying, as a layperson, ancient and Second Temple Judaism as well as early Christianity for almost twenty years.

Shortly after my encounter with /r/AcademicBiblical, I was asked to become a moderator there. For almost three years I was able to learn an extraordinary amount about the Abrahamic faiths.

Then, through talking with several users, I came up with the idea of a Q&A format, specifically, for the layperson. It’s been a little over a year since the inception of /r/AskBibleScholars and we have seen some marvelous scholarship that has inspired us.

Please, join us in our endeavor to learn more about this amazingly huge influential library.
