comment Is there a better translation for “Union” in Zechariah 11:14?
Other versions translate it as bands or unity. Don't know if that helps.

comment What are the arguments in favor of Markan priority?
I think this is the start of a good answer. Can you elaborate more on Mark's errors and how they support Markan priority?

comment Difference among “Word”, “word” and “Doctrine”
There is no difference between Word and word in the Bible. They are both the English translation of the Greek word logos. And the Bible was written before the invention of lowercase letters, so everything was written in all caps.

comment Why did Jesus enter Jerusalem on a donkey?
@MatthewMiller The introduction to The Last Week by Crossan and Borg talks about Jesus' entry to Jerusalem on a donkey as well as Pilate's annual entry to Jerusalem on a war horse followed by a host of Roman soldiers. The contrast would have been blatantly obvious to those living at the time.

comment Evidence from early manuscripts of Revelation 13:18?
@Random832: I can't find a definitive source, but Wikipedia says the miniscule style originated in the 9th and 10th centuries. That's well beyond the lifetime of John of Patmos.

comment How to save Paul from the Galatians 3 “seed” vs “seeds” argument blunder?
Regarding your followup, I think you'd have a hard time finding many scholars who classify Galatians as Deutero-Pauline. If Paul didn't write Galatians, he probably didn't write anything at all.

comment Is there any reason to think that Mark 7:19 has a later addition?
It's hard to find a way to interpret that in such a way as to suggest Jesus was upholding the kosher laws, regardless of whether Mark says Jesus was putting an end to them. Third, by comparing only the KJV and the NIV, you've ignored virtually the entire history of translation of this verse into English. At least since the ASV of 1901, the majority of translators have interpreted this as Jesus saying all foods are now clean.

comment Is there any reason to think that Mark 7:19 has a later addition?
-1 This answer has a lot of problems. First, before relying solely on the KJV's phrase "purging all meats", take a look at the NKJV's rendering: "thus purifying all foods". That's closer to what the readers of the KJV would have understood this to be saying. Second, regardless of the word "purging" or "purifying", it is clear that Jesus is saying the food passes through the system and does not make the person impure.
