From the documentation:

The Biblical Events Dataset is part of Faithlife’s Bible Knowledgebase (BK) which includes every instance of a person (BK Person), place (BK Place), thing (BK Thing), or event (BK Event) in the Bible.

Jessica Parks, Biblical Events Dataset Documentation (Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2021).

I find the story of Job, Esther, and Jonah ... but I have a bit of a problem when it comes to Judith, Tobit, and Daniel seems to start at the second event -- ignoring the test of eating unclean food ...  end early omitting the events of Susanna (Da 13) for example.

I have long since given up on the data in this dataset because (a) I can see no consistency in the division of events and (b) there is only a nod towards including the deuterocanonical events. Both are grounds for rejecting the statement of "includes every instance of a . . . event" However, documentation what is an is not included would be useful

That is present as Daniel and his friends refuse to eat the king’s food

I stand corrected
