comment Bart D. Ehrman - respected critic?
@WadCheber This is perhaps the most complete answer I have ever seen. Yes, Bart Ehrman's theology is one of complete skepticism, something most people can't embrace. The fact that Daniel Wallace(and many others) frequently debate him means there is considerable credence in his methodologies-especially when they regard textual criticism. I don't think anyone can lightly dismiss him; his credentials and academic output make him a worthy opponent in pursuit of textual clarity.

comment What is the meaning of “husband of one wife” in 1 Timothy 3:2?
This is a Good Question, and I appreciate that it concerns itself with the textual understanding, and not 'ecclesial' understanding which can be widely divergent. Thank you!

comment “Seasons”, or “Sacred Seasons”?
Thank you for your response! You did use the Gen. 1:14 passage as a comparison, which the BDB also uses to compare the meaning of לְמוֹעֲדִ֑ים . This seems to indicate that the moon is more than a loose piece of space rock, it is the means by which God ordained "special seasons" which He told Israel to keep for perpetuity. The upcoming "Blood Moon" falling on the Feast Of Sukkot is therefore no mere accident, but a reminder of this reality,,,,

comment Did Eli rebuke his sons?
Though it's certain according to the language he "rebuked" them, he did not remove them from their priestly office, which meant his "rebukes" went unheeded and they caused great scandal, so much so that the Lord Himself had to remove them(and Eli) from their priestly office. If he had "restrained" them, perhaps a different outcome, although they were "sons of Belial"(1 Sam. 2:12).

comment Does Paul believe that God sandbagged the Jews with a law they couldn't keep?
I think you have a great deal more explaining to do in regards to "practical curses". Are you saying that those that don't keep the commandments only suffer in this life? There is quite a few verses in both Old and New Testament that contradict that statement. I would re-think what 'being under the law' means and then respond coherently. Thank you.

comment How does John 5:28-29 fit with the dispensational hermeneutic
@C.SterlingBartholomew The works John Walvoord and Dwight Pentecost are required reading at Dallas School of Theology-"Things to Come" is a textbook that Pentecost taught out of until 2 years ago(he died last year). "Historical criticism" is not the deciding factor in determining relevance, inspiration is, and always will be.

comment How does John 5:28-29 fit with the dispensational hermeneutic
@All I upvoted this, as this is a Good Question that is about the text, and can be resolved by the text. Dispensationalism is a hermeneutic that contains certain presuppositions concerning the text; just as Preterism and Idealism do. The question is not about those presuppositions, the question is about the text, and whether the text supports those presuppositions, which is a good fit for our site.

comment In light of this scripture how does this fit in with a dispensational hermeneutic if this is the first resurrection?
@Susan (Again-falling on my sword) You're right. However, the "parousia" or coming of the Lord is doctrinally seen as occuring at the same time as the Rapure(harpazo), depending whether you're Dispensational or Futurist. That's why I used the 1 Thess. 4 text, then summarized the OP's text-is that OK?
