comment What did Jesus likely say in John 8:58?
@Susan I have to agree w/ScottS, although you don't know if there is a semantic difference until you pose the question. The context is the main clue here-whatever Jesus did say was enough to make them boil with rage. And asserting His Divinity would have done exactly that.

@MarkEdward Are there variants in the sources? Can they be traced?

comment What was the 'testimony' that Aaron's rod was brought before?
@Bye Yes, I am in complete agreement and I see this as a satisfactory answer. Note There are some here that don't, given the fact you used Strong's(a concordance), vs BDAG, BDB, or some other "Lexicon" which purports to give an actual "translation" of the word, rather than it's KJV equivalent, which is perceived as having 'barely a leg to stand on'. I find no essential difference between Strong's and other lexicons in this instance; but others on this site take significant exception.;>)

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".

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.
