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.

comment What is the significance of the names of the pillars in Solomon's temple?
(Revelation 3:12) The two pillars have become one pillar. This demonstartes the interpretive principle that when there are two things, they are two aspects of a single thing. The two trees of the Garden, in Rev. have become one tree with a double root.

comment What is the significance of the names of the pillars in Solomon's temple?
This is the same interpretive principle of double letters. THe double letters in a root do not make an new root, but an extension of the two-letter root.

comment What is the significance of the names of the pillars in Solomon's temple?
If the word truly means strength, then the pillars are interpreted as "heavenly or divine strength and earthly strength". Strength in heaven and on earth.

comment What is the significance of the names of the pillars in Solomon's temple?
When there are two things, one is earthly and the other heavenly. Quickness is related to his coming quickly to his house. He came quickly in strength and cleansed the temple as a symbol of him coming quickly to the world to redeem it.

If you post a "style guide" I will try to learn it so you don't have so much grunt work to do.

@Kazark Thanks for the reminder. I forget to vote on questions too. You do so much to edit answers just in formatting, there should be a way to vote on those too
