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 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.

comment What is the symbolism of the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb?
Rev. 17:15 says the sea upon which John saw the harlot sitting = peoples, languages, nations and tongues. I think the righteous are are set apart from these through faith and obedience like Israel in Goshem. As for its also being the lake of fire, I do not know. I do know that Rev. 22:15 says outside the city are evil doers who love and practice a lie. We also know that outside the literal city of Jerusalem was Gehenna, a perpetually burning waste dump.

@Bagpipes, Please consider accepting Wilberteric's answer. This is truly intended as an aside to compliment it.

comment Who is the bride of Christ?
Thank you for this answer. This is a low rated question (as is your answer, presumably because the question is poor). If you feel your answer is worthy of my improving the question I would gladly do so; I flagged the moderator for help doing so. If not I would willingly delete the question if the answer were removed. Or, if you think it is OK sitting here in case someone else wonders about it, even though it rates low, we can leave as is. What are your thoughts?

comment What is the symbolism of the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb?
@Dan, The song in Exodus is sung by Moses and the Children of Israel (presumably the males) with no particular mention of Miriam until Exodus 15:20 where Miriam and the women answer them. I think the Question should not have Miriam in it as Revelation makes no mention of Miriam.
