In the same way some countries write $1,000, some write $1.000, what do we learn when someone uses this alternative way of writing out verse references?
I have one lecturer that prefers this. i.e. They will write Jonah 1.5 instead of Jonah 1:5. I am wondering if anyone can enlighten me as to where this tradition comes from? i.e Who made it popular, does it reflect this person comes from a particular background?
