I'm having trouble understanding why Did Jesus try to copy Socrates? got closed. I read it as a question about the influence of a philosopher on 'something else' (and that 'something else' is sometimes described as a philosopher, e.g. by Thomas Jefferson). We have had other questions that asked about philosophy's influence on other developments, for example How was the rationale for Nazism built up in the academia (especially the philosophy departments)? and What is Kant's effect on modern culture, beyond philosophy?.
Conifold's comment on the question we talk about now, "How is this a question about philosophy?" received three upvotes but does not explain the issue. I replied to it:
[I]t asks about the influence on a philosopher on something. The something is considered a philosopher by some as well (thinking of the Jefferson bible, for example). But I agree that it is borderline.
Sure, there are several things you may have to say about the question, but how it is off-topic I don't see. Thoughts?
