comment What is the significance of the angel being on the right side of the altar of incense in Luke 1:11?
@paul-vargas True, but judging from the reactions recorded in the bible of those who have had angelic visitations, the angels don't seem to lack authority or honour. A bit of extra honour by appearing to the right of the alter would hardly seem necessary.

comment Who is “The Son” in Hebrews chapter 1: 8 ? Is He God in the strictest sense of the word, or a created being?
One way to resolve these translational questions is to just look up the list of translators, and (if they are still alive) simply write them a letter and politely ask them why they translated a passage a certain way. Unfortunately, the NWT translators were too "humble" to put their name to their translation.

comment How would Elisha plowing with 12 oxen have been understood at the time of writing?
Updated to clarify my intentions. I was trying to discourage the sort of vague answers that go on about the significance of the number 12 and drawing conclusions thereupon based on the connections that seem to only be well-defined in their own mind...

comment Understanding “Likewise” in Romans 8:26
I've read and reread your answer a few times. But I'm still not clear what you mean. Are you saying that, given our groaning in anticipation of adoption and/or the creation groaning in childbirth, this is "in the same way as" the intercessory groaning of the Spirit on our behalf?
