comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
@MonicaCellio, +JonEricson - One thing I did notice was that in Mark 11:16 (goo.gl/uR0pD), it says "And he [Jesus] would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple". Is the fact that the sellers were carrying things through the temple any clue to whether what the money changers were doing was wrong?

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)
