I'm Catholic and a CPA. I've have been studying Scripture for a while and like discussing different beliefs.

comment Did Abraham lose track of a visitor?
While I have a couple more questions, I'd rather not post them in comments. Would you join me in the library to talk?

@Bagpipes Besides the various verses in Scripture that mention "Brood of vipers" (and how so many interpret those), are you looking specifically for experts of Greek?

comment What would Peter “bind” or “loose” on earth?
@Susan I can see from within Mike's answer that some may say this gives Peter authority to forgive sins. At the same time, these 2 verses alone show he can keep some things bound; my thought is that he couldn't really keep sins "bound". Thanks.

comment What would Peter “bind” or “loose” on earth?
Help me understand. Are you saying this includes a priest's authority with Jesus present to forgive sins, counsel, etc. at confessions during the sacrament of Reconciliation? Thanks.

@Susan Thanks. Mike's answer you note does address a good amount of this; it includes some large differences with interpretations.
