comment How can we determine if a text is sarcastic?
Hmm, I'm afraid I'm not following this reasoning. What passages speak of Paul being a "champion of women in the church" that contradict 1 Tim 2:12? What indicates that "woman" shouldn't mean "woman" but "those who do not see clearly"?

comment How can we determine if a text is sarcastic?
@JonEricson: Yeah, I wasn't really thinking of it being affirmed or denied altogether, but what principles can be used to help determine whether something should be interpreted as sarcasm.

comment Exodus 6:3 - what is the significance of God's different names in the Tanakh?
I've always heard that Yahweh (Jehovah) was the "covenant name" of God, emphasizing his relationship with Israel, where "God" is the more generic name for deity without any specific connotations.

Thanks! "word" should be "world," but I can't edit it without finding another 5 characters to change :)

comment Translation of κοπιῶντες in Matthew 11:28
@jimreed: I suppose I was thinking about the difference between being weary (not necessarily from hard work) and laboring (but not necessarily being worn-out from it).

comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
@LanceRoberts: I do see your point. I reworded the last sentence to be about author's intent instead of church application.

comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
@LanceRoberts: It could definitely be approached from a theological perspective. Here though, I'm interested in the proper exegesis of the passage (considering its historical context) and the corresponding application.
