comment Ecclesiastes 4:12 A cord of three strands is not quickly broken
@J.C.Salomon Thank you. :) I am hesitant about qualifying phrases, because if I continually relativize my beliefs, I destroy them (since they defy relativism). But I have added something of a qualifying phrase to properly note in the answer itself that Jewish scolarship would differ on this point. And we can leave these comments in place as well.

comment Ecclesiastes 4:12 A cord of three strands is not quickly broken
@J.C.Salomon As someone who holds firmly to a Triune God, when I read a passage inspired by that God that asserts the superiority of three, I would be remiss to neglect the reference... these frictions are inevitable at an ecumenical hermeneutics site. I reject the idea that Christians and Jews have some deeper level of agreement which allows for neutral discussions. Occassionally we will say say similar things, but fundamentally we will always mean very different things. For me to separate Christology or Trinitarianism from my Old Testament exegesis to give up my faith.

comment Did Job believe in an afterlife where wrongs could be righted?
Jon, I trust that you will forgive me for posting several rebuttals of your posts in the last few days! I do want to admit that I find your argument from the overall point of the text (not questioning God even when he seems questionable) very strong. So +1 for that and a helpful introduction to the textual issues. (For the record, though, I am no fan of Wright!)
