comment Did Eve tell Adam that he would become as gods?
Skylar: Your question is "related" to the one @Susan linked to, because if the answer to that question is "yes," then your question becomes moot. However, being "related" to a question does not mean a question is invalid, because as you noted, if the answer to the other is "no," then your question becomes relevant.

comment Translation and historical background of Job 29:6a
We essentially agree on the authoritative text, though I do disagree about not being able to map Hebrew to English (or grammatical concepts of each). Your answer is helpful (+1), and may prove to be acceptable (you certainly attempted to answer the questions I asked).

comment In 1 Tim 2:12, how does αὐθεντεῖν (αὐθεντεω) differ from the more commonly used ἐξουσιάζω?
I gathered Westfall did not, and knew you did not from the Library post, which is where I will comment further rather than cluttering comments here.

comment In 1 Tim 2:12, how does αὐθεντεῖν (αὐθεντεω) differ from the more commonly used ἐξουσιάζω?
So the conclusion from this study for 1 Tim 2:8 appears to then be for a woman not "to teach or have 'autonomous use or possession of unrestricted force' over a man" or as earlier noted, "domineer" a man. That seems to fit exactly with what has been historically viewed as women not having a leadership role in the church, as such a role is "autonomous" from a human perspective; meaning Timothy was to "fight the good fight" (1 Tim 1:18), remaining autonomous from those lacking faith (1:19-20) and even elders under him (4:12), as he performed as an "overseer" (3:1-7).

comment How old was David when he fought Goliath?
@Mark: I have to admit I did not consider the sisters in my initial calculations. I do not know how you are deriving your "chance" numbers, but I can state this much: Zeruiah is certainly not a factor, but Abigail may be (see my updated answer for my revised analysis taking them into consideration).

comment Morality of God's commandment to kill rebels
For another critique of "inversive-vav," but differing in some conclusions, this paper provides an interesting read. It still understands the construction as indicating a past-tense idea, but for different reasons.

comment Genesis 4:15- Why did God protect Cain?
@TimBiegeleisen It is not the length of this answer that bothers me (many answers on this site benefit from lengthy answers), it is the fact that the answer is almost exclusively just a series of quotes and citations, without making any connections, nor making any real argument for a specific answer to the question. I know Joseph can produce more reflective answers, as I've viewed a number of them.
