comment Why did not the Apostle Paul ever say “In the name of him who says” (i.e., Heb. be-shem omro)?
Excellent answer. The issue of rabbinical tradition before 70 has troubled me for some time.

comment What is the meaning of Luke 23:31?
Great answer. I think what it makes absolutely clear is that Biblical context is formed by already held beliefs and not rational thinking.

comment Which apostles did Paul see while he was in Jerusalem after his conversion?
Are you asking if Luke got a little creative with his hero worship of Paul? If so it is a brave question.

comment What does “sit” mean in the scripture “The prostitute who sits on many waters.”
I asked because my King James links Rev 17: 15 with 18: 17 so it is a point that has been raised before and that cannot be dismissed out of hand. Maybe the King James translators are wrong as they are in other instances.

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
How about the simple answer that it was awareness of death?

comment What does “sit” mean in the scripture “The prostitute who sits on many waters.”
Why can 'waters' not mean waters? Why must it mean 'men' or 'humanity'? If it meant waters, it would imply maritime control or control of trade, something John would have been familiar with. Then the two verses are easier to understand.

comment Job 38, was God being sarcastic?
Job is everyman, not a man. Man has always had the same problems with God. (Why does God allow tsunamis etc) Good question though as it explains the 'since the beginning' nature of the Book of Job.

comment Does Joshua 6:20 suggest an earthquake occurred at Jericho?
After trying to walk straight through the rubble of a small demolished building I am certain there has to be another understanding of verse five and twenty. Even a small wall would create a mountain of rubble and this wall must have been high and wide. An earthquake would have made an impassable mess. I am most curious to see what solutions are proposed.

How does your answer deal with verses 34 and 35?

comment How come in John 14:22-23 it seems like Jesus doesn't answer the question but talks about something else?
Do you not maybe think the immediate context is the Holy Spirit?

Who were the gentiles Jesus turned to?

comment Another translation for “you will certainly die”
Is being unaware of the inevitability of death (as in children and even the highest animals) different to eternal life? Was eating the 'apple' the point were man became aware? Is that questions your answer raise or is your answer complete?
