revised Is Keller's view of the father in the Prodigal Son parable a reasonable interpretation?
Trying to make the question more about the text and the interpretation rather than the book itself.

comment What is the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics?
It kind of is for meta. But the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics is actually exegesis itself. So... I'm not sure where that leaves it!

comment Why is 1 John 5:7-8, found in the KJV, kept in the NKJV when it is believed to be inauthentic?
Admittedly, it's not ideal, but they weren't trying to "fix" the authorized version, but rather they were just trying to make it more understandable. I think this comes from the desire to preserve the KJV as much as possible for the love of the old, poetic phrasing. I agree it is a bit annoying, but it's not like the trinity is solely based on this verse.

comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
I really think that this whole line is borderline (if not fully) doctrinal. However, with the text being so crystal clear, it's hard to interpret this in a way that that changes the meaning. Paul's meaning and intention were very clear (both textually and doctrinally)

Actually... Merriam-Webster seems to show this second definition as well. Huh. Thanks. +1

comment How can we understand “fear”?
Would it be better, then, to translate this one Hebrew word (or the Greek variant) separately to avoid this confusion? Or should we try to change our English understanding of "fear" to accommodate this the definition of "revere"?
