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.

comment Is John 7:53-8:11 original to John's gospel?
@Soldernal, you might find this article interesting. It doesn't really talk in depth about the acceptance of the text, but you might find it interesting.

After researching this a bit, it's pretty obvious that it wasn't in the original text. Wikipedia has a list of manuscript evidence.
