comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
@All I see this question originating from the text and about the text, therefore I see no reason to close it. Because a question is 'uncomfortable' doesn't make it "off-topic", unless the OP's intention is to deliberately inject his own thesis and bypass the text; in this instance I would vote for closure.

comment What is “Parousia”? Does it have any relation to the second coming of Christ?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 Welcome back! Thank you for your analysis of the Greek. This question sat for a couple of days, and I felt compelled to answer it; but it needed the Greek understanding, of which I wasn't able to contribute as much to. Thank you!

@FMS "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."(Rev. 1:7) Since He comes in the clouds, it must be seen as the "Parousia", rather than the Final Judgment, where He sits on the Throne of His Glory(Matt. 25:31-32).

@user6053 Short of writing an entire volume, this is a good answer. The question isn't that G_d made a Covenant with Israel, but in Jeremiah, He made a Covenant in which all the nations of the world would be blessed by it. If Israel were the only nation on earth, then she would be the only nation blessed; but because G_d visits Israel and writes His Torah on their hearts, then ALL nations are blessed through their relationship with Israel...(Acts 2/Joel 2)

@rhetorician You have an excellent answer here, Don. It is difficult for a new user, used to forum-type sites, to get the 'hang' of how we work here. Nevertheless, you seem to have 'pared' away the commentary and got to the nucleus of the answer.

@Miguel de Servet I have to agree with daen-your 'question' is more of a discussion than a query. My suspicion is that it will require a major 're-write' to simply ask a question, rather than injecting what you perceive the solution to be. Remember-you can answer your own question, and you should keep the question a question, and save the answer for an answer.

comment How do we interpret Luke 17:37?
@majnemɪzdæn Are you a riddle wrapped in an enigma.....;>) ? I was less than satisfied with the Matt. 24 answer, and I originally didn't see the Luke 17 answer on CSE. I like Joseph's answer, which if no other answers turn in will receive my check.

comment How do we interpret Luke 17:37?
Thank you for your response! This was not an answer given in the previous discussion of this question; I basically agree with your conclusion-there is no other way of interpreting 'eagle' except as a bird of prey, consequently, those 'taken' by the eagles are where eagles go to devour their flesh-certainly no picture of anything that looks like heaven. Those 'left behind' therefore, are those who will be 'caught up' with the Lord; not as a 'dead carcase' but as a living body.

comment What is the traditional understanding of God's Marriage Contract(Ketubah) with Israel?
Thank you for your response! I'm sure there was much more you could add, but I believe it captures the essence of the Ketubah, between Israel and God. What particularly captures my interest is the view that each of the books of the Torah represent one of the witnesses of the Ketubah.
