I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment What did Paul mean by “ArsenokoitÄ“s”? Was he condemning homosexual activity as we know it today?
you really should cite (preferably in a link) sources for your claims - though this looks like the start of a good answer

comment Who are the children of Sheth Bileam talks about?
@fdb - the point still remains: the immediate context does not allow for such an interpretation

comment Who are the children of Sheth Bileam talks about?
@fdb - depends on the translation used. If you note the references I used, they are distinctly different.

what source(s) do you have to indicate John was the "gatekeeper of Caiaphas' court"?

comment How long did Job's tribulation last?
Interesting - I've always heard Job as being undated, but an actual historical account

@FrankLuke - nice spot on Ron's misnote of the firstbornness of Judah :)

comment What are the holy Scriptures that Timothy has known from his youth?
@swasheck - I was trying to point out that even if he were under 20, the odds of him having heard any of the early epistles is remarkably low

comment What are the holy Scriptures that Timothy has known from his youth?
@swasheck - the first of the NT books was written ~49 AD (or, arguably, ~42AD - though those were letters to individuals or churches, not gospels). Paul wrote Timothy in ~65AD. There is no way Timothy could have heard any of the "New Testament" at his grandmother's knee unless at least the following happened: a) he was close to Israel, b) he is under 20 when Paul writes him

comment What are the holy Scriptures that Timothy has known from his youth?
@swasheck - it's a relevant comparison, not because the letter had anything to do with his age, but because of when it was written

comment Did women contribute to the temple in exodus 35:22?
@RonMaimon - there is no aversion to "florid imagery" in the Song of Solomon, indeed: it is replete with explicit terms

curious - how do you get "vulva-cover" when [apparently] no one else does?

@RonMaimon - have you decided on an answer to this question which best fits what you were looking for?

comment Does Moses Speak Broken Hebrew?
sidebar, but fwiw many people speak substantially differently from how they write - especially given that writing gives the opportunity for more thought than does (typically) speaking

comment Is the author of Ecclesiastes referring to Archimedes?
It's also key to note that communication, trade, etc was substantially more widespread and advanced than typically credited in this era. Whereas they didn't have electronics, they certainly had routine news and trade routes that carried goods and information around the globe :)

comment Why is Rahab and not the spies included in the “Hall of Faith”?
it isn't necessarily - I was merely pointing-out she's included elsewhere and prominently, too
