comment What is the textual evidence for defining “μισέω” as “reject”?
To be honest, I fear that this may arise from a moral repulsion to some of the statements of Scripture, which so often causes for dumbed-down interpretations, as Kierkegaard was fond of pointing out. I would like to do exegesis rather than eisegesis on this passage.

comment How should ἱλαστήριον (hilasterion) be translated in Romans 3:25?
I've been told that "mercy seat" is a term which can be traced to Luther's German translation, and that is was more of a paraphrase than a translation. I don't have sources for this tho, sorry.

comment Who subjected the creation to futility in Rom. 8:20-21?
+1. While Soldarnal's answer is theologically correct, your answer is more exegetically precise: this is the divine passive.

comment Arguments for early/late date of authorship of Daniel
The argument style of Porphyry, which would evidence its late date to an unbeliever, furthers the glory of God in the heart of a believer at the detailed accuracy of the prophecy.

comment What are the arguments in favor of Markan priority?
+1 From the number, length, thoroughness and detail of your answers, besides your longstanding rank, I'd be tempted to say your middle name is Skeet.

comment Is there a modern English translation of the Bible that uses the second-person plural pronoun?
My father, who is a linguist, claims that the theologians overwork the importance of the number of the second person pronoun. The community/individual dialectic is certainly a critical one in Scripture, but it is easy to go to far in studying it in the details of the pronouns.
