comment What “spirit” is 1 Peter 3:18 referring too?
Thanks for your wording: "We need not even assume that the author of First Peter . . .." In other words, we CAN assume that Peter wrote the letter we call "First Peter," but we NEEDN'T assume. I can live with that. Don [P.S. One good reason for thinking the apostle Peter wrote First Peter is in verse one of chapter one: "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ . . .." In Peter's day, one identified oneself as the writer of a letter at the very beginning, not the end, as we do today (by saying, for example, "Sincerely yours, Dick Harfield").

comment Jesus said Resist Not Evil, what is the context?
@e.s.Kohen: Thanks for the corrections. My information came from a old set of notes of mine which were not by any means what you would call scholarly! Don

comment Why is Wisdom personified as a woman?
@warren: Easy there, fella. I didn't say David wrote the Proverbs; I said that the OT book of Proverbs MAY have had its genesis in David's throne room where he and his son Solomon MAY have had some talks about spiritual things. David planted the seed, so to speak, and when Solomon was older and was wise enough to ask the Lord for wisdom (1 Kings 3:11 and 2 Chronicles 1:11), he channeled that wisdom into the writing and compiling of proverbs.

comment Why is Wisdom personified as a woman?
@warren: Are you suggesting that King David never shared some godly and practical wisdom with his son Solomon? At the very least, inspired writing seems to have run in the family. David was, after all, a contributor to the Psalter, and he had a gift with words. Like father, like son, yes? Don

comment What is the “Lot” in Proverbs 16:33
@JohnUnsworth: Thanks for the vote of confidence. I attribute--rightly or wrongly--the negative votes to my having offended a few of my fellow contributors back in November when I wrote this answer. These things happen; feathers get ruffled, and the chickens come home to roost. Don

comment Jesus said Resist Not Evil, what is the context?
@Tau: I've included an addendum to my answer by which I attempt to contextualize some of Jesus' teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, including his teaching on not resisting an evil person.
