comment Why does Mark mention Elijah before Moses?
So you're arguing then that in Mark the word order is insignificant, while in Matthew and Luke it was imbued with meaning?

comment Why does Mark mention Elijah before Moses?
@BobJones I think even the most conservative interpreters recognize that word order is sometimes used to convey a certain emphasis. I don't know that Mark is doing that here, but the fact that he deviates from every other pair of "Moses and Elijah" suggests so to me.

comment What and where is the Kerith ravine?
@EliRosencruft I'm not done with this answer, but I'm done for this night. I'll have to think some more about the implications of the Mosaic parallels, and then probably there is something to do with Noah as well (so the Talmud tells me). Not sure what you're getting at yet with the reference to Obadiah, though. Obviously Elijah is provided with food, while Obadiah provides food; but not sure what the implications of that would be.

comment How does Pharaoh know to summon Abram?
Thanks, this question was a shot in the dark to see if anyone had any insights I might have missed, but you're probably right that the text just doesn't give us enough information to know.
