comment What are the various ways that “elohim” has been translated?
@Dan Cool. Link and ping me when you've got it.

comment What are the various ways that “elohim” has been translated?
@Dan So you are actually saying that the real problem with this question is that it is too broad. I can see that. I almost expected that.

comment What are the various ways that “elohim” has been translated?
@Dan Well, as a non-regular I respect your current guidelines, but I must say I'm disappointed. I generally take a meta approach to everything, so having such a strict scope on questions does little to excite me.

comment What are the various ways that “elohim” has been translated?
Just as words move and shift in meaning in English I am asking how elohim has moved and shifted throughout the centuries in relation to its use in the Bible. I don't see why that should be off-topic. This is much more than what I think a concordance would show me, unless, as already said, you can show me the concordance you have in mind.

comment What are the various ways that “elohim” has been translated?
@Dan The word-study tag excerpt says "Questions focused on the meaning or use of an individual word across a body of writing." The meta post you linked says "Answers must start from the specific text raised in the question." These are conflicting messages. Must all questions arise from specific texts and not words that those texts contain? If you truly think a concordance can answer this I would like to see the ones you read. The ones I read just show me the various verses with this word. That's not what I asked in the question.

comment Who said “of them which thou gavest me have I lost none”?
It looks to me like the words are Jesus'. The NIV places quotes and makes this more clear.

comment What does “torture” mean in Matthew 18:34?
There are two Christianity based sites on the SE network. This one, BH for short, focuses strictly on the texts. In this case, the answer should point to the word translated "torture" and make a case for what it meant to the author and what he expected his audience to believe about the word. Your answer here is more theologically founded, which is where the other site comes in: Christianity.SE. Both are great sites to be a part of and offer excellent researched answers. Just be sure to tailor your posts to the specific goals of each.

comment Is there any reason to think that Mark 7:19 has a later addition?
"the Greek" doesn't particularly mean much. Which Greek? What manuscripts is this quote from? The NKJV says "purifying all foods," also missing the "In saying this, Jesus declared." The last paragraph in the top upvoted answer has an explanation for this.

comment Why doesn't Jesus give away all his money?
I don't see your summary and conclusions as different than "the typical Christian answer of 'Jesus was addressing his personal idol.'" Are you not saying that he loved his money more than anything else, a common problem for the wealthy?

comment Is there a sacramentalism in the “Bread of Life” discourse?
My highest upvoted answer on the Christianity site is also pretty much a copy and paste from previous research.
