comment Why does the Bible say that Abraham sacrificed his “only-begotten son”?
I am also thinking about the Psalm in which God is said to pronounce: You are my son. Today I have generated (gegenneka) you. (2:7) The generating here obviously has a meaning far beyond biological fathering. (Inthronisation and kingship are addressed.)

comment Why does the Bible say that Abraham sacrificed his “only-begotten son”?
Hi Eric. I'm not sure yet what to conclude. It may be the LXX tried to improve what they saw not accurate in the Hebrew text. The way the Letter to the Hebrews renders it obviously supports the reading that excludes Ishmael.

comment What did Jesus mean by “the queen of the South”?
Yes. If there is going to be an uprising of the righteous and the unrighteous, how could she be singled out not to rise up, when these Israelites will rise up as well?

comment Gen 3:22 + Rev. 22:2 =?
To take that parodism (your reference to Luke 16) literally to me sounds like making a fool of Him who is anything but a fool. Did He not know it would be taken that way? He must have known. For the sake of spreading He allowed it. The truth alone would not have been spread the way the error has.

What do you mean by your last sentence? If death is eventually a returning to the particles of the ground, how do you imagine this experience to continue?
