This is a fascinating question. The deeper I dig, the more elusive the answer seems to be!

comment What is a Horizon of Understanding and how can it be applied to understanding the Bible?
Also, I just realized how important (critical, even) this concept is towards even beginning to grasp Revelations!

comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
Totally agreed. So, while "kill" could be a valid translation, "murder" is a better one since it's a "Thou Shalt Not". It doesn't make much sense to say You shall not have an accident.

comment Did Jesus sweat blood?
That is true, but it also seems that those verses weren't in the original manuscripts. So, the authorship may be in question. (Just another thought. You do make an excellent point, though.)

comment What is a Horizon of Understanding and how can it be applied to understanding the Bible?
Our horizons are hopelessly distant, in my opinion. However, we can move towards understanding him better by understanding the culture that he lived in. I believe that there will always be a bit of a gap, but I also think that with enough research and empathy, we can get closer.
