comment How does the rule of non-contradiction differ between Greek logic and Biblical Hermeneutics?
There is a bad hermeneutic rule that says an author uses the same word in the same way... this is obviously not true, in the examples you give.

Great answer. I wanted to get it established as an answer so we can refer to it in answers to skeptics, who accept the contradiction at face value rather than look for the difference in time or way the language is used.

comment Why should an altar be made with uncut stone?
The law is an aspect of Holiness. The Kingdom will be a Holy kingdom as will the church. "Be ye therefore Holy". There is one stone that was broken by the rod of God, from which came living water.

comment Why isn't there a taxonomic distinction between clean and unclean birds?
@Jon, your instincts fit SP. The picture is that those birds eat either carrion, dead things, or they catch fish, which, like the lobster catching fish is not kosher (snatching those living in the world and dragging them to the earth)( And birds that eat other birds). The birds that are clean are those that eat seed (Christ) as a picture of the Eucharist.

comment “Back in ships to Egypt” in Deut. 28
Drop the vowels, Ships also means sorrow, and they have the root 'I'. So he is saying, "Though at times you wished to return to Egypt, in this case I myself will take you back to Egypt in sorrow."

comment According to Scripture, how should we interpret Scripture?
"recognizing the gradual unfolding of the redemption plan in it." this is an apriori assumption. I have shown that John Got John 1-1-4 from Gen 1.1 and that plausibly, by the meaning of the words themselves, Adam knew the skins were a symbol of the death of the creator Lamb of God.

comment According to Scripture, how should we interpret Scripture?
I would argue that Paul did not appeal to "bare nature" but in fact was making the point that "the natural man says long hair is a shame" and knowing that for the Nazarite it was his holiness (the spiritual interpretation) produced a riddle which must be answered. Christ bore our shame on the cross (symbolized by long hair), but it was not his shame, he was holy.
