comment Apparent inconsistencies in the vision of the four chariots
+1 I was taking four primarily in terms of "the four winds of heaven." Good point with the connection to the beasts in Daniel! I want to note for future readers that this dovetails well with your answer to my two bronze mountains question and ought to be taken along with it. I have some form of preterist tendencies, and so that part of the post also peeks my interest.

comment Apparent inconsistencies in the vision of the four chariots
@JonEricson Duh. I should have linked to the same version I was reading in physical copy (ESV). I glanced over it briefly to make sure they were the same but missed that.

Note that this is one of many occurrences of the number two in Zechariah.

comment The number two in the book of Zechariah
I'm also inclined to think that this may require a complex answer; the theme of two might be explained in a general way, and then each of the specific instances of two might each have different meanings.

comment The number two in the book of Zechariah
Good catch--I meant to include the the width versus length one but forgot. +1 for good and helpful discussion. However, I would be surprised if 2 can be a number for completeness, given that in various contexts 3, 4 and 7 already serve that purpose. Though I do see how "On the one hand... on the other..." could have to do with completeness.

comment How to interpret Genesis 25:1-2?
Sir, I'm afraid your answer doesn't really solve the difficultly raised by the question.

I highly appreciate the Messianic nature of your answers. +1

comment Does the seventh seal do anything?
Having worked to digest the idea of silence in the passages I discussed in this post, I wonder, given the fact that Revelation is something of a patchwork quilt of Old Testament passages, whether this episode in Revelation has a connection to those prophecies.

comment What does Paul mean by allegory in Galatians 4:24?
Can you support that Paul actually uses this hermeneutic in his writings? He had a rather radical break with Judaism when he was knocked off his horse by the Lord.

comment Using literal hermeneutics how does one determine if a demand is made on the reader?
@JonEricson I have heard the dispensationalist hermeneutic called "the literal hermeneutic". Of course it radically fails at its name.

comment Is the usual translation of “ηὐχόμην” as “I could wish” justified in Romans 9:3?
+1. One Greek grammatical correction: there is no middle/passive voice. The "middle/passive" refers to a set of endings that can be used either by the middle or passive voice. Paul is here using the middle.

comment Is the usual translation of “ηὐχόμην” as “I could wish” justified in Romans 9:3?
+1 good analysis of the Greek. Your references to other parts of the Bible are also helpful, tho I would hardly say Adam's action was "true intercession". FYI deponent is an imposition of Latin grammar on Greek and doesn't do a great job of describing the particular phenomenon in Greek; "passive deponent" is really "middle" (edited accordingly).

comment What is the “hidden manna” and the “white stone”?
+1, but your answer is rather prolix. Could you cut out those parts that are less directly related to the question?

comment In Eph. 1:13, what does the word “sealed” (ἐσφραγίσθητε) mean?
+1. However, the aspect of aorist is not perfect but either punctiliar, or what is more commonly thought now, undefined.
