comment Why is the observation that “it was good” missing on the second day?
Yes, I was just about to state the same thing when you beat me to it.... I found Keil & Delitzsch's Commentary said,"division of the waters was not complete till the separation of the dry land from the water had taken place, and therefore the proper place for the expression of approval is at the close of the work of the third day." Since the author is not writing to angels, but rather to men, the completion of the separation of the waters doesn't occur until the 3rd day.(+1)

comment What does Jesus mean by “Pray then like this:” before the “Lord's Prayer”
Good answers, both your's and Jack's. The heart condition of prayer is the main concern, but Jesus also offers them a 'template'(in this manner) to assist them.

comment Does kôkābîm (כוֹכָבִים) in Book of Daniel refer to any bright objects in the sky?
@kenorb The same word is used in Dan. 12:3 with the same context; which is figuratively describing "bright ones"(stars), meaning angelic hosts. In 12:3 it is "resurrected people" who retain this quality of "kokabim".

I don't believe you answered his 'question', however, you answered it in the way that would dignify an answer. +1

comment What's The Significance of Paul Saying “Pastors And Teachers”?
@JonahElbert Are you referring to the "Five-Fold Ministries" discussion? Eph. 4:11 is the basic text quote for this doctrine; referring to the "Ministry Offices" vs 'ministry gifts'.

@Stan I agree w/Paul Vargas, I believe you have insights but aren't familiar with our site directives. Either way, I encourage you to persist in your diligence in seeking the truth, and in presenting it in a way which satisfies our site requirements.

comment Why does John the Baptist deny being “Elijah”?
@Nernie No, it is actually a very good question; most people 1st entering this site have a variety of misconceptions concerning it. It is a good practice to familiarize yourself with the site directives and save yourself a lot of grief over "down-votes", "vote-to-close" and "vote-to-delete"(DV's,VtC's,VtD's) which some, including myself at first, had to contend with.

comment What is the significance of 153 fish?
Another 'off the wall' but interesting answer. Strong's "153" in Hebrew is 'edra' or 'a force'. Obviously, neither John nor James Strong 'coincided' '153' with any particular meaning, but both of them recognized it was the 'force' of God to give them 153 fish.

comment Assessments of the evidence for the “Gap Theory” reading of Genesis 1:1-2?
Whew, what a discourse! And I have the sense much more could have been said-providing their was space to say it. You can see from Joseph's answer the simple appeal of it, along with the simplified version of the grammar to support it. But on careful examination, it becomes what it is, simply a theory attempting to fill in a 'gap' between science and faith. Thank you for this prodigious effort!

You do an excellent job explaining "gap theory", the challenge is to 'prove' that God had intended a 'pre-creation' universe apart from the 6 day one.

YES! I trust when Frank weighs in we'll see the evidence(or lack thereof) to conclusively 'prove' this theory.
