"The verb in question (byd) is "to set on fire", per the AKOT."
From this answer.
I have no idea what that quoted line means.
It's definitely not talking about the original Hebrew which is completely different from "byd" or "AKOT"
I have no idea what either of those two "words" are supposed to mean or be referring to
are they acronyms for something?

@Ami Analytical Key to the Old Testament, I'm guessing.
The book cover looks like AKOT.

Q: At what point does interpretation cross the line into doctrine?

RichardI know I have asked this question before, but that was on a general level. Now, since I couldn't get a good answer there, I'm forced to ask on a specific instance. Is turkey kosher? At what point does a question moves past the line from interpretation into doctrine? My gut is telling me that ...

@Richard, thanks for the bounty on my question.
 
My pleasure. I've really been curious about that.
There's also a badge in it (Investor), but it's just bronze.
Still, I broke 3k and we need more 3k users.
I'm considering adding more bounties as I gain rep over 3k. We really need to get some more rep going through this site.
I just realized that Bob Jones is listed as #2 in the Top Beta Users, yet his site rep is at 617. Kind of surprising.
 
@Richard: I've been eyeing the exegesis questions at Christianity.SE. Could we get some of them redirected here?
 
Yes and no. I've been trying to direct some of them over here, but if they provide a doctrinal framework, then they're on-topic over there.
The only time we can migrate to a beta site is when the question is explicitly off-topic for the source site.
 
@Richard One thing I'm wondering about is if the way questions are supposed to be asked there means that askers add doctrinal spin when they don't really care. They just want to understand the Bible.
 
@JonEricson Maybe sometimes, admittedly. But when a non-doctrinal exegesis question gets asked, I always say that they either need to consider doctrine or migrate here. We've had a few that have chosen to migrate.

I'm looking at the comments on a question I answered, for instance.
@Richard That's good to know. I don't think they should be forced by any means.
 
Having said that, feel free to pull from over there for inspiration. ;)
Alright. I gotta go.
Seeya guys.
 
Adios.
