comment Who does Jesus refer to by the phrase “another who testifies about me” in John 5:32?
I'm confused by your answer. Did you mean 5:32? Or are you referring back to chapter 3 somehow?

comment Who does Jesus refer to by the phrase “another who testifies about me” in John 5:32?
I read 33-35 as an interlude. The Jews probably thought that he was alluding to John when he said that another testified, but Jesus clarifies that yes John gave valid testimony, yet in fact Jesus is speaking of a greater witness than John. I don't think the idea of the gradation can hold for two reason: 1) Jesus already has appealed to the Father as a witness in 23-24, and 2) the gradation moves from John to the Father to the Scriptures and its hard to see how the Scriptures are weightier than the Father.

comment What and where is the Kerith ravine?
@EliRosencruft Obadiah's character is interesting, and I'm having trouble figuring him out. On the one hand the text is emphatic that he is a devout worshiper of the LORD. On the other hand, he also has two masters (he calls Elijah his lord in 18:7 but Ahab is also his master in 18:10f) which is reflective of Ahab and the people who "waver between two opinions" (in contrast to Elijah and Jezebel).
