comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
@MonicaCellio - Since as a Christian I believe that Jesus is the Messiah promised by God in the Tanakh -- a physical incarnation of God Himself-- I can only guess that He knew the intentions of the sellers at the temple. Since He called them a "den of robbers" in Mark 11:17, I'd only be able to take His word for it. As far as I know, there weren't any other details about the actions of those particular people in the NT.

comment How do Jewish scholars differ from Christian scholars in their approach to the Tanakh?
I don't get the impression that Bob wants to offend. On the contrary-- from my limited understanding-- Bob's method attempts to impart more of a Judaic perspective to the NT-- which I personally feel there should be much more of. The narratives of Jesus are meant as a fulfillment of Jewish prophecy (i.e. "To the Jew first" Romans 1:16), and salvation of the Gentiles is almost a side-note. As Christians we need a Jewish perspective (I definitely appreciate reading @Monica Cellio's input on this site!); however by definition there are going to be some sticking points on theology.

comment Why is “rega`” translated “peace” in Job 21:13?
No clue-- I can't read Hebrew, though I'd love to learn-- but KJV seems to translate it your way (bible.us/Job21.13.KJV)
