I'm basically a self-taught, now inactive, web designer who still seeks to learn more about css (and some javascript) while pushing it to its limits: all as a part-time hobby between my Ph.D. studies in Systematic Theology. For those interacting with me on Biblical Hermeneutics, this meta question of mine will reveal a lot about where I come from regarding that topic.

comment Earliest attestation to Luke's gospel
@cdjc: I would say "yes" and "no." Obviously it is an attestation to the Gospel of Luke, but assuming it is the same author, then it is not an independent testimony (which, though the OP does not mention it, seems to be the implication; i.e. who besides the author of the Gospel of Luke is the earliest to attest to it).

@DickHarfield: Thanks for the input. I agree with your first point, but not the second. I've updated my answer to address both aspects.

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
I have a hard time agreeing with the close vote as "too broad." While certainly volumes have been written about Jer 31:31, it is but a single verse, and all the sub-questions relate to the interpretation of it. So if our site cannot handle trying to interpret a single verse, then we might as well close shop. It seems a summary answer can be given without getting too bogged down in extensive details. Of course, differing hermeneutics will probably give differing summaries, but that is a good thing.

comment Omission of 'fasting' in Mark 9:29
@kmote Thank you for your constructive criticism. I have updated my answer to propose a thesis on systematic omission of the wording, as I would agree that the topical connections to the other passages do tend to point away from accidental.

comment Omission of 'fasting' in Mark 9:29
@Davïd I added to my wording about the "average Joe." I do believe errors were more prone in that time because of this, and that seems to be the general point of why most of the variants were deemed to have arisen in that time. However, the same types of errors occurred whether by professionals or not.
