comment How good or bad was Jesus relationship with Pharisee?
I changed the question as much as I can inserting sources with many christians texts. If I am wrong, please move this to christian stackexchange?

comment How good or bad was Jesus relationship with Pharisee?
Judaism nowadays stems from the pharisee and they obviously do not like the idea that Jesus seems to be hostile with pharisees. However, their relationship may not necessarily be that bad and gospel writers may have agenda. I am questioning this theory.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
Let me get this straight. This answer support henotheistic interpretation and the other answer support monotheistic interpretation. Am I wrong here?

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
He called Jesus lord and the father God. Looks like lord and god are 2 different titles.

comment The accuracy of Stephen's claims about persecution of the prophets
the muslims often claim that their prophet, Muhammad is prosecuted. What happen is that most people in Mekkah simply don't believe him as prophets. Most just ignore and laugh at Muhammad. That's not prosecution. Again many jews may simply fail to see that a prophet isn't a prophet. Perhaps the prophet doesn't "sell" or not popular or not convincing. Well tough.

comment Why English translators would translate rhea into neighbor?
I mean out of so many possible english words that a translator can use to translate rhea, buddy, comrades, fellows, why use the word neighbor?

comment Where did James get the idea that breaking one commandment means breaking all?
You said he relies on jewish scripture. "If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture ..." Which one? What verse?

So nothing like this is ever in torah? I think I have read that somewhere in old testament. Yahweh says something around doing the whole commandment and not doing it means breaking all. I just forget the verse.

So somebody, that's not Jesus, not a prophet, a no body, writes a personal opinion and we have to accept that as scripture?

comment Are the words “wife” and “woman” the same in Hebrew and Greek?
What exactly did I do? Also, where in the bible does it say that adultery means "having sex with someone you're not married too". I guess abraham committed adultery with hagar then because hagar is not abraham's wife.

comment Is “revile the gods” (KJV) an accurate translation in Exo. 22:28?
Does elohim really mean judges or rulers instead of mere gods? Did Rashi said that elohim is a homonym to make torah looks more monotheistic than it really is

comment Is Deuteronomy 32:39 a monotheistic declaration?
you mean the author of 32:8-9, 12 are different than the author of 32:39? That they are quite likely written on different time?

comment What is the significance of Mark's 'Long Ending'?
I upvoted it. I think it's downvoted for the same reason my questions are downvoted. Your answers downplay a very important christian doctrine. That the gospel is historically accurate and that it's perfectly preserved by God. Both is necessary though not sufficient to maintain reasonable faith in mainstream christian theology. If we can't trust the gospel, what can we trust?

comment Why are the three accounts of Paul's conversion on the road to Damascus different
It's kind of strange that we have contradictions within the same book written by the same author. Is it possible that Luke contradict himself? Or is book of acts written by a bunch of people?

comment What is the significance of '7 generations' in Luke’s account of Jesus's genealogy?
Why would LXX tries to make the earth look older? Due to scientific/historical evidence showing much older earth ;)?

comment Is Deuteronomy 32:39 a monotheistic declaration?
So your take is that Yes it's indeed monotheistic declaration but of latter period. That is unlike deuteronomy 32:8-9 that could be a mere henotheistic declaration of exodus period?
