comment What do pronouns “their” in Mark 9:43-48 refer to?
Mark 9:44, 46 are absent in the older and best manuscripts (cp. א B C L Δ). In other mss, they repeat vs. 48, and were likely added by later scribes to "fill out the parallelism in the passage" (Constable, Expository Notes 2012). Robertson (Word Pictures in the NT) indicates vss. 44 and 46 found their way into the KJV via western and Byzantine mss.

comment Does Nazarene Sect mean Nazarene Cult?
Generally, a "cult" lives apart from the mainstream of society and obeys a charismatic leader, while a "sect" is a dissenting faction within a larger religious group. Also generally, "cult" = unorthodox or (sometimes) fanatical, but "sect" is a type of "clique".

comment When Jesus bowed his head, was he committing suicide?
Perhaps, for "absolute clarity," you'll need to personally ask the One who performed the act? But, since crucifixion was a somewhat lengthy experience for some victims, the Gospel accounts seem clear: Jesus surrendered his life before he died from the effects of being cruelly executed in that manner.

@rhetorician-- you wrote: "he bowed His sacred head". In what Bible version did you find that?

comment What does it mean in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14 when the text says, “Whoso readeth, let him understand”?
@H3br3wHamm3r81-- I began to ask if there's any verifiable extra-biblical evidence that the Romans desecrated the Temple as did the Syrians under Antiochus Epiphanes (ca. 175-164 B.C.), but I'll research that possibility before asking.
