comment What is the third heaven that Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 12:2?
I've looked at both references twice and I'm still not sure what subset of those passages you are referring to. Would you mind adding quotations from them to your answer?

comment Meaning of “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”
I read the Greek text for 26-28, and though I have an appreciation for idiomatic translation, the Message has taken too much freedom with these verses to be of use in discussing their meaning. It may or may not be a correct interpretation, but that the passage means what the Message gives it to mean must be demonstrated from another source than the Message.

comment Meaning of “Body of Flesh” in Colossians 2:11
I would give an extra +1 for the C.S. Lewis connection if I could. I have often found that Dawn Treader metaphor very helpful but had not thought about in connection with this passage.

My friends had told me about the NET Bible, but I had never taken the time to look into it—looks like it would be worthwhile!
