Book order in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament
Is there any systematic information in Wikipedia about the differing order of books in versions (Masoretic, Septuagint, etc.) of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament)? I haven't found anything, although a few articles do mention the existence of ordering differences. I propose that we start an article on this topic, provisionally "Book order in the Hebrew Bible". Any thoughts? Any offers? Feline Hymnic (talk) 10:25, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
I noticed that in articles specifically talking about the Jewish bible (the Tanakh, not the Old Testament), there were parts that were obviously written from a Christian standpoint. For instance, "Song of Solomon" was being used instead of "Song of Songs" and "Lamentations of Jeremiah" was being used instead of "Lamentations". No Jew (from my experience) has ever used these terms. I looked a bit deeper into it, and the term "Song of Solomon" is uncommon in Judaism because it is not a Jewish phrase. Any thoughts?

Atrocious bias in "Jesus and the woman taken in adultery" article
I would like to draw attention to "Jesus and the woman taken in adultery" article. The article is extremely biased and its main section is completely dedicated to apologetics.
Statements like "Some "experts" have also falsely claimed that no Greek Church Father had taken note of the passage before the 1100s." or "Many modern textual critics have ignored the early church evidence that is available and have speculated that" undermine the entire modern scholarship and are out of place in encyclopedic entry. Views of the modern scholars are not represented in any form other than such grotesque strawmans as above.
