comment Does the miracle of the Woman with an Issue of Blood indicate that healing power flows spontaneously from Jesus?
That's something to think about. Did the Father "tell" Jesus about Nathaniel's exemplary character, or did Jesus just know about his guilelessness because as God he knows all things (see John 1:47)? Honestly, I don't have a definitive answer for you. Don

comment Does the miracle of the Woman with an Issue of Blood indicate that healing power flows spontaneously from Jesus?
@MigueldeServet: Yeah, your Q was clear enough to me. The more I think about it, however, the less clear my answer becomes! Not for a minute do I think Jesus ceased being God. He was and always will be fully God. That he happened to be and always will be fully human makes incidents like the healing of the woman with the issue of blood more than a little shrouded in mystery. Again, where did the divine "leave off" and the "human begin" (& vice versa)? Beats me. Since Jesus was continuously in touch with his Father, could the Father have nudged Jesus when the woman touched his garment? Possibly.

comment Why does Jesus refer to himself as the “Son of Man” in Mark 2:10?
@Onlyheisgood: "The devil's in the details," my friend. The words "son of man" in Numbers are not the same as (or equivalent to) the title "Son of Man." The translators of our English Bible (dare I say every extant version?) capitalize Son of Man, and for good reason. A "son of man" could not survive the heat of the king's furnace, but a Son of Man could. That is the point: Jesus as the Son of Man (and God) is the perfect representative for our fallen race. He was and is the Second Adam who, though in "the form of a bond-servant . . . and in the likeness of men . . . humbled Himself . . .."

comment What's The Significance of Paul Saying “Pastors And Teachers”?
@Susan: Thank you for the suggestion, but speaking only for me, I think my bringing something up on meta would not be a wise--not to mention an efficient--use of my time, which is not to say I'll never bring up something on Meta, as I recognize Meta as being, potentially at least, a good and useful feature of BHB.

comment What does 'reign with him' in 2 Tim 2:12 mean?
@FMS: Again, thank you for your encouragement. Notice I've added some meat to the concluding section of my answer, in hopes of painting a mental word picture of what reigning with Christ will entail when the body of Christ, free of the presence of sin, pain, suffering, and death, will truly be liberated. In the words of TV's Star Trek (paraphrased!), "Heaven, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the King's subjects. Their eternal mission: to explore new worlds, to seek out the beauties of God's creation, to boldly go where no man has gone before, all for the glory of the King."
