comment On what basis is the name “Ephraim” given the etymology of “ash heap”?
Actually, if the Sefira Yetsira is read as a 'formation of language' rather than as an occult document, there is very early evidence for the sub-root as the 'gates' of which it speaks. I have since been collecting such evidence for a dictionary of subroots based on the same proposition.

comment What is the meaning of “rod and staff” (Psalm 23)?
Sensus plenior is based on the premise that puns and riddles are the genre of prophetic riddle. Literalists shy away from punning.

comment Does the Gospel of Thomas help in reproducing the hermeneutical methods of the apostles?
" He certainly doesn't accuse them of knowing more than they communicate in public." He called them serpents (liars). A liar is one who is misrepresenting what he knows to be true. So he did accuse them of knowing something which was true and not sharing it.
