comment Why did John write in this seemingly time-bending way?
Wasn't he just clarifying which Mary it was, given that there were so many around at the time?

Good question. And was it ever practiced? Is it practiced now?

comment Why did Stephen give such a long speech?
I'm pretty sure that it is not simply to delay his death as long as possible...

comment Why did Jesus tell Mary not to hold onto Him?
I don't agree that, "the physical affection that they had showed him was no longer appropriate". However, I do think you've hit on something with not clinging to Him, because He had to go to be with His Father. So I'll accept this but also have a nagging feeling this issue could be explored further.

comment Did Jesus not heal the crippled beggar at the gate Beautiful?
Yes, I am sure of that. I am wondering if there are any clues in this specific instance. Eg. Maybe someone knows that Jesus would never have entered by this gate.

It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.

comment Who received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost?
Perhaps 2:15 implies only men were filled with The Holy Spirit? (I hope not!)

This is interesting to me because I know different denominations have different beliefs and I'm looking for an objective answer.

comment Is Philemon tongue in cheek?
Thanks. What do you base, "more like how a parent speaks to their child when they know that the child knows the right thing to do" on?

Just out of curiosity, Monica, I notice you don't have a problem writing, "God". May I ask what you think of this (just curiosity)? I was triggered by this answer which uses G-d.

comment Did Joshua execute innocents?
I'm not sure. It sounds like punishment is per group but grace is per individual, which means it is much easier to get punished than to get grace. I suspect, somehow, that the others were complicit; God has previously stated He would not destroy many thousands for the sake of a few.

I thought all the answers were excellent, but this was the easiest for me to understand. :)
