comment Classical Greek vs. Colwell's Rule vs. Subset Proposition
You need to clarify whether your question is about classical Greek (as in the opening, "quoted" statement), or about John 1:1 raised later -- in which case previous Q&As should be checked in case your concern has already been addressed. If the former, it's off-topic, of course.

comment Translating κυριακὸν and κυριακῇ as an adjective (dominical) instead of indicating belonging
Worth noting there are already two Q&As on Revelation 1:10: "“Day of the Lord” or “Sunday” in Revelation 1:10" and "What is “the Lord's Day” in Revelation 1:10?". Their concern is slightly different from OP's here, although there is some overlap.

comment Best Septuagint, Masoretic, and Aramaic texts into one English version?
@Schuh - Good to know about that Logos product -- but worth noting given OP's interest in English translations that Tov's edition is in original languages.

comment Hosea 6.7: “like men”, “like Adam”, or “at Adam”?
@MarkEdward I don't know why Joseph consistently glosses הֵמָּה hēmmâ "They/them" with "Hamah", but even so, it cannot be the antecendent for šām. It's not a place! It's a 3rd person plural masculine independent pronoun (with its own antecedent in 6:5). (Unless I'm disappearing down the rabbit hole.....)

comment Can the Bible's relative chronology be made an 'absolute' chronology?
It's fine to give an overview (of course!) but you need to use the terms correctly. In your list, there is one "absolute" date, yet (if I am reading you correctly!), you present all oi these as "absolute" dates. Perhaps this accounts for some of the confusion in the Question as originally posed (and sensed at the top of my "answer"). Do, please, clarify what you understand an "absolute" date to be! I'm sure that would help this Q&A.

comment Hosea 6.7: “like men”, “like Adam”, or “at Adam”?
You know I value your answers! But here you mistake what the accents do in relation to šām. Antecedents need not be in the same clause as their referring term. They can be in a different sentence, or even paragraph. Accents mark phrase- and clause-level conjunctions and disjunctions. It doesn't matter what the accents are doing, šām (like LXX ἐκεῖ) still refers to place - it cannot refer to "them". It addresses "where", not "who". The grammatical relationships are misrepresented here. :( The other כאדם references are interesting, but different contexts of course.

comment Can the Bible's relative chronology be made an 'absolute' chronology?
Interesting list -- but on my understanding, only the eclipse in #3 in this list is an "absolute" date (which I already provided). All the rest are "relative" and subject to adjustment at least, or challenge. Even there, you give the fall of Samaria as 720. Jeremy Hughes, Secrets of the Times, pp. 206-9 discusses proposals for 724, 723, and 722. Cogan gives 724 in the Anchor Bible Dictionary "Chronology" article; Hoppe gives 721 in the ABD "Israel, History of" article. This is not an "absolute" date! There are more "absolute" synchonisms; these aren't them.

comment In 1 Tim 2:12, how does αὐθεντεῖν (αὐθεντεω) differ from the more commonly used ἐξουσιάζω?
Well, I suppose that's a help to the same extent that grouping "autodidact", "automatic", and "automobile" -- all starting with auto- -- mutually inform the meaning of those terms. I appreciate your industry, but I'm afraid this isn't very illuminating.

comment In 1 Tim 2:12, how does αὐθεντεῖν (αὐθεντεω) differ from the more commonly used ἐξουσιάζω?
The words cited from 2 Corinthians 8:9, 17; Titus 1:7; and 2 Peter 2:10 have nothing to do with the meaning of αὐθεντεῖν found in 1 Timothy 2:12 (and only there in the NT - and only very rarely outside the NT before this NT usage).
