comment Is John 3:18 the words of Jesus, or of John?
Thanks for the answer. I would be willing to consider this question a duplicate of the other, in fact.

comment What does Matthew 18:8-9 say about eternity?
I like your point that an "unquenchable fire" could simply mean that there is "room for all sinners," and not that it will burn forever. That's an interpretation I had not heard before.

comment Why did Abel keep flocks if man wasn't supposed to eat flesh til after the Flood?
@MonicaCellio: To me, 'flock' probably means goats or sheep--assuming that's a precise translation--but even goats have been used as pack animals. Not sure if they commonly pull plows, though :)

Flocks are often kept for many reasons other than wool, as well: Milk, animal skins, beasts of labor, etc.

The distinction between unintentional and intentional killing is important, but it's far from the only meaningful distinction to be made. There are many types of intentional killing that are not considered murder. Are these being forbidden by the Ten Commandments? For one, is the forbidden intentional killing limited to killing of humans? Further, does it only forbid murder, or also capital punishment, or war? These are the questions that most people struggle with--not whether it's a sin to accidentally kill someone.

comment To whom was Isaiah referring in Isaiah 53?
@lonesomeday: Question updated. I may ask the second question later, too... I want to get the hang with this one first. :)

comment To whom was Isaiah referring in Isaiah 53?
@lonesomeday: I'm not convinced it's on topic here, either... which is why I originally posed to C.SE. :) Even so, I included this particular "prophecy" just as an example. If there's a better example that has less contested interpretation, I would be all for using that instead. But examples aside, I'm still curious to find an answer to the question (whether I find it here or elsewhere).
