comment After the crucifixion, why was Mary not cared for by her own children, rather than the disciple John?
Somewhat related: "Why did John take Mary, who was married, into his home?"

A related question on Christianity.SE: "What explanations are given for the apparent exaggeration of the number of Israelites in the Exodus account?"

It seems this question is a duplicate in any case. See: "What is the difference between hope and faith?"

comment The Difference between hope and faith?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! We're a little different from a forum, so do take the site tour if you haven't already. Please also see what we’re looking for in questions. Questions without a text to interpret are "off-topic", and this one will probably be closed. Please edit your question to focus on a text (or closely related set of texts) where the "faith/hope" distinction arises, and "flag" for re-opening.

comment Do any scholars argue a textual theory where the NT text was edited to make the autographa?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it concerns a specifically Christian and doctrinally-related understanding of inerrancy and inspiration, and thus belongs on Christianity.SE.

comment Is Genesis 1 a type of Hebrew Poem?
Benner is not a good guide here, Dick. In fact, some of his claims are decidedly ropey. (And macro-structures have no bearing on prose/poetry distinctions here.) Better off with things like Petersen & Richards, or Kugel, or Alter, or either of Watson's books.

comment Is Genesis 1 a type of Hebrew Poem?
Very helpful. The comparison to gJohn's prologue could use some nuance, though. It sounds as if you're suggesting that because gJohn has a prologue, and it's similar to Genesis, then the opening of Genesis must be a prologue too. Maybe you don't intend that, but it comes across that way. Note, too, that Endo's book (your Amazon link) has very little to do (almost nothing) with Genesis 1, and doesn't belong in that list. The general point (association of Gen 1 and Jn 1) is not controversial, though. In any case, this connection doesn't really bear on OP's question.

comment Does the Hebrew tally these numbers?
I admire your industry, but this is simply fanciful speculation. You state: "...the numbers were originally separated for a reason...". Correct. And the reason is: that's how numbers are presented in biblical Hebrew.

revised Did Ezekiel warn the just in Ezekiel 3:20?
placed key bits in bold: otherwise, need to do a bit of careful reading to work out the differences + disambiguate bib ref in title

comment Why is Paul called a 'babbler' in Acts 17?
Thanks for the answer (and welcome!). You might already know it, but it would be worth adding the online Liddell-Scott-Jones to your lexical tools. It's more authoritative and up-to-date than the venerable (but dated) Thayer. For example, here's the σπερμολόγος entry. Hope that helps!
