comment Why is Jacob renamed Israel twice?
An angel? I thought Jacob fought an elohim, which mean god. The word for angel is melekh.

comment Why did Abraham stop at ten in Genesis 18:32?
So we got 3 righteous people saved. Lot, and his 2 daughter. They engage in incest. And that's like the most righteous of all. Then we got noah that get drunk. If that's the most righteous humans, what did the rest do? Watch porn?

comment Is there bible translation that is more literal than Young Literal Translation
Okay the answers are good. It doesn't explain why bnei elohinm is translated as angels of methuo is translated as drunk satisfactorily or whatever.

comment How to interpret John 2:10
In any case, most english bible translators do not translate methuo as alcohol intoxication. I wonder if it's a deliberate attempt to keep bible politically correct. I could make that a separate question but then some mod will mark the question as duplicate.

I found others anomaly. Bnei Elohim is often translated as angels. Methuo is often translated as have drunk satisfied (rather than as alcoholically intoxicated). It's as if the translator try to keep bible politically correct.

comment Does Jesus drink wine?
Well, who said that all people in the party drink in moderation? John 2:10 says that typical in typical jewish party, people get drunk. Also Jesus produce copious amount of wine.

comment Why English translators would translate rhea into neighbor?
You said neighbor means friend and probably did during the time of the translators. Any source? You said that in reality, neighbor is a close associate or friend. Any source?

comment Did Jesus help drunk people to get even more drunk?
The first question ask if Jesus produces alcohol. This question ask whether the obvious corollary that he must have made many people drunk at the party is correct and why it's not supported by large number of christians.

Well, can you drink large amount of wine without getting drunk? They depleted the host's whole wine reserve. Then Jesus produce copious amount. What are they? Star Trek crew that can cure hangover that quickly.

To say that Jesus prohibits drinking wine is even more blasphemous. Do you know how high corruption rate is during prohibition? You mean God would encourage corruption by prohibiting vices?

Everyone drinks wine. Then Jesus produces even more wine. And they're not drunk? Also since when getting drunk is a sin? It doesn't violate any Torah' rules.

The first question ask the meaning of a particular verse. This question ask the obvious implication of the answer in the first question. There is huge controversy here.

comment How to interpret John 2:10
Yes. However, as you said, the word methou means alcohol intoxication. So those people are drunk. Jesus helped them to get even more drunk by manufacturing 400 liters of wine. Also there is no doubt that people in the party drinks a lot.

Indonesian translation translate that to "have drunk satisfactorily" perhaps to hide the idea that Jesus produces narchotic and alcohol.

How do you know that drunknness is sin? In canae wedding, if the drink is indeed wine, which you seem to have no problem with, Jesus produces copious amount of wine. So Jesus is helping drunk people to get even more drunk.

comment Should the word elohim in Psalm 8:5 be translated into gods/angels/or god?
Similar with Indonesian word malaikat. So sometimes angels get translated from elohim and sometimes it's from malak.
