comment Are the words “wife” and “woman” the same in Hebrew and Greek?
Could be. Or Jesus could say "wives" to mean other wives. It's sin to look at others' wives with lust. It's not sin to see women in general. Just like it's adultery to have sex with someone else' wife, but it's not adultery to have concubines like David and Abraham, for example. I am not saying it's true. I am saying that it could be what Jesus mean and from the verse, we can't know which one.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
+!. Not sure which answer is the correct one. Looks like Paul doesn't know how many gods are there.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
(as there are many gods and many lords). Why is this phrase in parentheses anyway?

You are using 2 assumptions. First you assume that adultery is sex outside marriage. Jews would disagree. Then you say that sex outside marriage is immoral according to paul. We don't know that. So it seems the answer is yes. Wife and women are the same words.

comment Did Jeremiah complain about corrupt torah in Jeremiah 8:8?
That other question seems to be the gist of this question as well, though not as similar. This question talks about whether wa tawrat means torah at all.

comment Did Jeremiah complain about corrupt torah in Jeremiah 8:8?
a bible that says that it is corrupted can't possibly be correct. But yea your answers make a lot of sense. As how Jesus, Ezra, etc. quote the bible. You seem to assume that all those guys are perfect. Maybe they're not as perfect as you think. Ezra could be a racist plotter that mistakenly kicked out southern Israelites thinking they were non jewish. Gospel writers may combine a bunch of teaching and put it in Jesus' mouth.

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.

comment How to interpret John 2:10
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.
