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 What is to Reign on David's throne?
I think your answer is fine also +1. & I think you are catching on. I'm pretty sure Dan is expressing personal preferences here, not site policy. Perhaps he downvoted and is just communicating his reason for his downvote. It is true that the site is diverse/not Christian; however, how that is handled has been a matter of considerable discussion. Bottom line is this: the NT is an agreed upon text for the forum. Thus, if a matter is asserted in the NT, cite the reference and don't feel you have to reestablish it as fact through showing the steps. If it is not stated out right, show your steps.

comment Is the NLT's version of Romans 13:7 a valid interpretation?
Hello Lamar. I edited your post so the voice does not assume your readers are Christian. While there are Christians here, this is not a Christian site. Thus, the recommendation is to avoid the third person plural voice. Here is a summary of core procedure for posting answers on BH-SE. 1) keep the text the focus and the Q in mind. 2) show your work logically, step by step. 3) support all assertions with quotations/citations/links to credible sources. 4) stop short of application (Stick to what the text means). That should get you off to a fairly good start.

comment What significance does John perceive in the piercing of Christ's side and the flow of blood and water?
I want to say also, I appreciate your heart behind your method. It is critical that we apply Scripture to our lives, and that we grow in relation to God through it, not just study it. I am sure you agree, it is critical also to first know what it means (Mt 13:18-23). I only point this out because this site focuses on what the text means, and stops short of application. While this should not be our practice in our lifes, as a Q & A forum, this avoids our turning personal conviction into law. It helps readers understand the word, then allows the Holy Spirit to guide them in how to apply it.

Wow! looks like you have really invested some time and effort here! It looks like you also have applied some of the direction Jack has given you. Note that you lose your formatting in the blue boxes so, I removed the formatting indicators so they do not show in your answer. I would like to see your methodology posted somewhere else and a link to it provided so it is accessible. Thus your answer will be more direct. I have inquired in chat about this. I look forward to seeing future contributions from you.

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to share your insights. I see Dan has directed you to our site tour.

comment “How did Jesus' ”teaching with authority“ differ from the Scribes?”
Hello Jason, it looks like you have been introduced to the site tour already. Welcome! Here are the core essentials I have discovered for BH-SE. With Questions--Start with the text; state the question; show that you have done some work on it already. For Answers--keep the text the focus with the question in mind; show your work step by step; support all assertions with credible sources using references/links/citations; stop short of application. You can strengthen this particular post by supporting your assertions from credible sources.

Hello Robert. I am glad you found BH-SE. I edited your post a little. You can use the "edited" link just below your post to roll back edits. And you can edit further using the "edit" link on the bottom left corner of your post. Bible Hub's interlinear is another great tool, though it does not serve your purpose for this post.
