comment Is the rich man in James 1:10 a brother?
Hi Zorro, welcome to this site and thanks for the answer here. The two "characters" idea is interesting; there certainly are a lot of dichotomies in James. I'll have to go back and examine that; though it might make your answer more helpful if you developed that a little more here.

comment How ought we to take Paul's comments on getting drunk?
My pastor mentioned this too. He contrasted getting drunk with wine and being filled with the Spirit as things which control our thinking.

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.
