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?
YHWH gave these instructions to Israel; "it is unclean to you." It is remarkable that right with this He says also the following about not eating things that die: "Deut 14:21 You shall not eat anything that dies [of itself]; you may give it to the alien who [is] within your gates, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a holy people to the LORD your God." They could give it to a foreigner, but they could not eat it themselves for they are holy people to YHWH their God.

comment How are contractions formed in Hebrew and how does YHWH become Yah?
Thank you both! @Susan or Taneli. Do you have any idea what might cause the apocope and the dropping off at the end? I can imagine folks lazily dropping the ends of common words. I have a difficult time imagining such occurring with so revered a name? Are there any grammatical rules that would lead to such?

comment Does Leviticus 19:28 in the original text instruct not to tattoo for the dead or not to tattoo at all?
An interesting aside: in speaking with a tatoo artist about this passage he informed me that many, if not most, tattoos are done in regard to the dead.

comment John 12:24--In what way does the grain of wheat die?
I see. Everyone has their starting point from which they operate. Faith in God's word, as truth, is mine. In respect of Scripture as the Word of God, I endeavor to explore what it says and what it means, with integrity. Both premises lead to observation. The interpretation of what one sees often turns out different depending on one's premise. I welcome insight about the words and their meaning. I welcome observation from botany as well. What is true about what Jesus is saying? And, what is true about what we are seeing or observing? I know they fit together somehow, the question is how.

Depends on where your faith is! Many scholars put more faith in much less!

comment John 12:24--In what way does the grain of wheat die?
I got to thinking about this last night. I concluded that if Jesus said, "Most assuredly I tell you" or "Very truly" then it must be true. So I shifted my thoughts to consider in what way the grain dies. I realized that the grain must die in order for the germ to live. Thus there must be a distinction between the grain and the germ. Anyways, I am confident that the germ will not grow so long as the grain is alive.

This does not address the Grammar, but rather the Theology of the matter.
