I am called to, "Teach the Word of the Lord; sing it to the nations loud and clear."
I enjoy inductive Bible study!
I study to show myself approved unto God.
I am intent upon what Scripture says, what it means and, what difference it makes.
I do not need to be right; but, I do need to discover what is right; thus, I welcome honest interaction/feedback.

comment Why did the Mosaic Law prohibit the ancient Israelites from eating pork?
To expound, this seems connected with YHWH's intent to make them a kingdom of priests. We think of "holy" as "not immoral" (ie. what would be wrong for any human to do). However, the Scriptural concept of "holy" is "set apart" for God. Vessels used in the temple were not to be used for secular purposes. It would have been sinful to use the consecrated vessel for common purposes; but, there was nothing sinful about people using common vessels for common purposes--eating daily food, etc. Thus, it seems it is connected with the purpose of Israel as a nation holy (set apart unto God).

comment Chapter and verse numbers in Greek vs Hebrew/Aramaic
TN. Did you meant Hebrew vs Greek? If you meant Aramaic, is your question in regard to Aramaic portions of the OT or to the Aramaic Peshitta/Peshitto? If the latter, you might try asking in the forum at Peshitta.org.

Hello Debby. It sounds like you have some light you wish to shed on the subject. Your contribution sounds interesting; however, as it stands now, is more like a comment than a well thought out answer. Answers in this forum need to have a thesis and well supported points that follow a logical progression of thought. Consider re-writing your answer directly in answer to the question rather than in regard to another answer. Write from your perspective, presenting facts. Make clear points and support each with evidence.
