But maybe part of what we’re trying to do here is break some deeply entrenched habits of “study and discussion”. For example, it might help us to get out of the very bad habit of prooftexting and learn to read the whole text. I appreciate the fact that in practice it is extremely useful to be able to reference to chapter and verse—I do it all the time and would be lost without it. But as part of a thought-experiment, I think it is an essential step. Besides, most of us, I’m sure, use more than one Bible—so use a conventional edition when you need it.
