Trusting in the God of Abraham. Loving Law and Prophets. Believing Christ and his Apostles. Found fathers in Paul, Job, Moses, John. Adoring Daniel and Jeremiah. Trying to live in Christ (and for that reason hating foolish images and carven crosses and similar stuff).

comment Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
The way it is worded here (likely due to the - questionable? - reference to El-Shaddai) this text truly is problematic in his - again questionable - negating of YHWH as having been known to the patriarchs.

Ezekiel has El together with Shaddai ones. The translator of the LXX here simply writes (genitive) THEOU SHADDAI, employing a double Delta (of the Overpowering One), not the single one of breasts and fertility. The meaning may be close though.

comment Interpretation of Psalm 45:14
It could be his kingdom, the city of the king, Jerusalem, the bride (ekklesia?). In any understanding they should all become one in the wedding of the king's joy.

@Ron Maimon. I keep thinking about it. In Ruth the LXX renders Shaddai as ho Ikanos (the Sufficient One). In Job as Pantokrator (Ruler of All), Ikanos, and Kyrios (Lord). El-Shaddai is nowhere used for God except Gen and Ex these few instances where it is foreign and confusing everything. None of the Prophets, not a single Psalm speaks of El-Shaddai.

comment Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
@Frank Luke. This would mean that Israel, which died in the wilderness, experienced YHWH whereas Abraham who got a son at their old age, as good as sacrificed him and received him back, did not. But Israel did not enter into His rest. If the Name was primarily connected to promise of the land, why would it be spoken of even before the promise, in the Garden of Eden and before the flood?

comment Does Scripture imply that Judas knew that the high-priests and elders' goal was to have Jesus killed?
Thanks. Now it's clear to me. They may have even concealed their motives as far as persuasion could possibly go: That a lawful investigation would bring clarity into people's claim for him to be the Messiah. From the rebuke of Peter the betrayer could have known how mistaken and inimical human reasoning can be.

Can you clarify your last sentence to me? I would conclude otherwise: If he had known the outcome, why would he have killed himself after he first took the money?

@Ron Maimon. How do you do this? What do you find? I mean, what made you interested in these texts?

@Frank Luke. Great answer! Question: You quote W.J. Martin but you seem not to follow him in your conclusion. Why?

@Ron Maimon. You did not come up with the documentary hypothesis by self-derivation, did you? I actually follow such a hypothesis myself (P.J. Wiseman's in many of his findings).

comment Does the New Testament quote extrabiblical writers?
Just great!!! And this quote from Aeschylos - I had no idea - I mean this is truly sensational. Can anyone find words for that? +100

comment Why does Luke associate the birth of Christ with the census conducted by Quirinus?
Just one piece of it. Worth while to read. And old good stuff too.

comment Who is the little horn that 'has eyes' and is 'speaking' blasphemous things in Daniel 7?
@Mike. You are right. None of the powers that followed the Roman Empire was as singular in its impact on God's people. In that respect they really rather resembled toes than limbs in their own right.

comment Why does Moses speak in first person in Deuteronomy?
Interesting observation and question. For Genesis: because Moses was (just) compilator/redactor/editor. For Deutoronomy: ?

yes that one. Thanks to the question I realized I had almost forgotten about it.

comment Who is the “god of this world” in 2 Corinthians 4:4?
I am quite certain, though, that Paul did not use the word cosmos there but rather was he referring to the god of this aion, of this time and age irreverent to the good news of God and his Christ.

comment How many future resurrections are there in the New Testament?
I had mentioned it before. It had not received any interest. Because of your suggestion I wrote to the editors of the Nestle-Aland again, which I had done 5 years ago in the same matter. Their argument pro text was weak i.m.o. back then.

comment Angels of God in Luke 12:8
Your question is actually a good argument against the probably too simple notion of one common textual source molded into Matthew's, Luke's, and Mark's account.

comment How many future resurrections are there in the New Testament?
Thanks for the reference. Good discussion by someone obviously not JW. As far as I am informed, JW do build some of their ideas on that part of the verse (Rev 20:5). It had i.m.o. been added along with Augustin's and others' view of the millenium as the church reigning, which is unsupported but was favourable to many.
