comment What is the “Water” of Genesis 1:2?
@James Or the substance exudes from God's being. It is because God is, and by extention, so also is everything else. That would be an acceptable monotheistic take, at least, as the Hebrews were.

comment Is there any reason to think that Mark 7:19 has a later addition?
Yes, it seems a conjecture, but there's at least some support I think. How is it Jesus says this but years later Peter needs a dream to be convinced that all meats are clean?

So the alternative to "Jesus declared all meats clean" is "the intestines makes all meats clean"? That makes no sense.

comment Is there a difference between “the devil” and “Satan” in the Synoptic Gospels?
A few of us in one of the chat rooms for Christianity.SE noticed this answer and were impressed. We also noticed that you've been here for a while and have a M.Div, concentrating in Systematic Theology, which makes us wonder why you don't also participate on Christianity.SE too.

comment What can we infer from the different nativity accounts in Matthew and Luke?
@HenriqueSousa I sympathize and generally agree that the birth stories of Jesus are probably exaggerated/fabricated because of the reasons you point out and that there's no external verification (one would expect commentary on the mass-murder of young boys). Once you reach 20 rep we can use the chat room where this would be on-topic to discuss this. That's only 2 upvotes on an answer or four on a question. Here's five rep to get you started ;)

comment What can we infer from the different nativity accounts in Matthew and Luke?
Rather than one story being invented, it's much more likely that one is a source for the other or there is an earlier source that we do not have. Differences like this doesn't inherently mean incompatibility, but rather different perspectives. The guy who wrote Luke saw it differently perhaps. This kind of thing is very common when people recount events.

@Joseph I appreciate the effort to keep the site clean. I participate on C.SE where we get a lot of noise. But like Caleb said, I assumed this should be on-topic because of the existence and use (133 questions) of the hermeneutical-approaches tag.

@JonathanChell I thought that might be the case. You could probably turn that into a reasonable answer.

This seems like it should be on-topic, but I'm not sure. I also expected to find better tags, but that's all I could get.
