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 Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
I edited your post in hopes to avoid its being closed. Those who edit are usually trying to help you; however, you are free to roll back any edit of your posts. Please take a moment to review the reasons I gave for the edit. That and my above post should provide you with some basic principles to edit your own post and make it appropriate for this forum. I look forward to seeing your future posts.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
Hello, Welcome to BH-SE. This forum is somewhat unique. I see your interest is in sound doctrine, mine too! While hopefully what you contribute and find here will be sound, the purpose of the forum is to explore the meaning of Scripture by observing language, text, context, etc. The forum does not deal with how the text applies today. Questions begin with a particular passage, avoid doctrinal premise and do not seek application. Answers begin with the text, show each logical step toward an answer to the question, support assertions with credible sources, and stop short of application. :)

comment What basis do we have for defining Sabbatismos in Hebrews 4:9?
Dan, your inquiries on this intrigue me as to what you had brewing. Sometime if you have the time (and I do know you are busy) I would truly be interested in your response, unless the information has already been posted sufficiently by another.

comment Is “breath of life” in Genesis 2:7 is the same as spirit?
Welcome to BH-SE. I edited you answer. Please take a moment to review the edit and the reasons I listed for them. You are free to roll back edits on any of your own posts. However, those who edit are endeavoring to help improve your post for this site. This answer would be even stronger if you provide a focused confident answer from your own perspective (with textual, contextual support and citations), carefully showing your work (the logic from one step to another). Avoid responding to or refuting another answer as it only clutters and distracts from your own answer.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
It is from his commentary in the Companion Bible. Let me just ask this, What specifically did you want to know when you posted this question? Did you want to know if it is possible that this is the Sabbath or that this is the first day of 50 days counting toward 7 Sabbaths?

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
Bullingers comment on Mark 16:1&2 indicates this "first day" came after the weekly Sabbath had passed, thus, not a Sabbath. Commenting on John 20:1 he translates the phrase as "the first (day) of the Sabbaths (pl)" equating it with the passages in Mark 16:2 & Luke 24:1. He explains, "Lev. 28:15-17 shows that this "first day" is the first of the days for reckoning the seven Sabbaths to Pentecost." This would be the first day of 50 days in counting 7 Sabbaths. He continues, "On this day, therefore the Lord became the firstfurits (v 10,11) of Gods' resurrection harvest (I Cor. 15:23)."

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
The interview deals with the implications of dispensationalsism and when Bullinger said "That scraps half the books I have written," it was in regard to how Bullinger divided the epistles. It had no bearing on his views of "the first day of the Sabbaths."

comment What is the meaning behind the parable of Children in the Marketplace in Luke 7:31-35?
Thank you for this contribution, and welcome to BH-SE. This answer will be strengthened and more highly regarded on this site if you cite some textual/contextual/linguistic/historical sources to support the assertions of this answer.

comment What is the “great mystery” in Ephesians 5:32?
+1, I think it is a good question. You have seen assertions made as to what the mystery is. Here you will hopefully receive answers with support logically demonstrating how the poster came to their conclusions. Welcome to BH-SE. Be sure to take the site tour under help on the upper right top of this page. Also, I encourage you to fill out your profile so folks can get to know you. Oh, and, Don't stress about a down vote. Focus more on how to ask questions according to the policies and procedures of the forum . . . and give it a little time.

comment In Heb 6:4-6, what have those once enlightened “fallen away” from?
+1 I like your transparency here. I still suggest you separate your understanding as an answer and leave your last sentence in your question. The reason is that it leaves the question as simply asking for careful exegesis of the text rather than seeming to poise for a debate. Yet still is upfront that you have formulated your own answer and are open to looking at other well supported perspectives. Also, leave it more open for any perspective even if same as yours. Perhaps someone will bring in other support than you.

comment What does Jesus mean in Luke 5:36-39? (new wine into old wineskins)
Can you edit this to include support for your assertions with citations/links/references to credible sources. Here are the core things you will want to know to strengthen your posts: BH-SE, answers must 1)show their work (logical steps), 2)support any assertions, and 3)stop short of application (this forum deals with what the text means, not how it applies). BH-SE Questions must 1)begin with a specific text (not doctrine), and 2)must demonstrate that you have done some research on it yourself.

comment What is the significance of the author of Genesis using two different designations for God?
Is "For Priestly Code" the name of the document from which you quote? I formatted the quote as though it is. I used the web address you provided as a link for the quote. If that is not correct just type the name of the source between the brackets and restore the info in parentheses to its proper position in the quote.
