comment Conflicting locations for Rachel's burial
It may be any one the things you've mentioned; and it may be an 'anomaly'; just as in where was Abraham buried: (Sychem or Mamre)? The Truth was that she was buried "in the land"; the 'where' becomes a point of academic concern, which some who cite "inerrancy" get tangled in various nuances-and those who oppose "inspiration" use passages like these to discredit "inspiration". The Bible is a book of Truth, and it contains the words of Life. It is not a book of history, although historical facts are contained within it. That's where I'm coming from.

Wow! I think we've got an 'inerrancy' question here....?

comment Meaning of “ἄρτιος”(artios) in II Tim 3:17
Thank you for your response! I believe you've resolved the confusion regarding the translation of ἄρτιος. The 'perfect' usage is consistent throughout the KJV, although "artios" in this instance seemed strange. But your answer reconciles this, thanks.

comment What sort of sinner etc. is Nietzsche's madman?
@User3293056 I would love to answer this question-having absorbed "Thus spake Zarathustra" in my late teens.But unless you convert it to understanding a biblical text(you could cite the text, and ask if Nietzsche's understanding conveyed it's meaning), otherwise it is Off-Topic and likely to be closed. Thank you!

comment Was Isaiah familiar with the prophecy of Amos?
I looked extensively into the history portion of this question; Amos certainly came before Isaiah, and more important, Isaiah was a chronicler(2 Chr. 26:22), which would have given him access to manuscripts. The Jewish Encyclopedia is emphatic about Amos writing his book, therefore the scribal connection seems evident. What I was looking for is a literary and especially a linguistic comparison; I'm sure they're out there but I was unable to find. So I changed my answer to a comment...:>)

comment Why did Jesus fast in the wilderness?
@user11888 While I see that you have added some texts in your answer, could you expound on those texts(quote the texts and show from the wording how they support your conclusions). That way your audience will see "How" you arrived at your conclusions. Thank you!

comment Is Revelation 3:14 saying that Christ was created by God?
I believe you have a valuable answer, but it would benefit greatly if you would format it by: 1) Break it up into paragraphs, 2) Capitalize when needed, 3) Use the Blockquote icon in separating quotations from your commentary. The end result is that it is more "readable" and therefore more likely to generate positive responses. Thank you!
