comment Is Keller's view of the father in the Prodigal Son parable a reasonable interpretation?
I've only heard his sermon series on The Prodigal God, not read the book; but Keller's perspective I don't think is too different from what you've written here. He sees both brothers as wanting their father's things rather than their father, and I'm pretty sure he argues that the elder brother should have been working to reconcile the younger brother back to the family just as in the other two parables (coin and sheep) someone seeks what was lost.

comment Did Jephthah actually sacrifice his daughter?
@FrankLuke I guess I'd say the ending of her father's line would be part of the tragedy in her death, but also just that it was considered a disgrace for a woman to remain barren (cf. Gen. 30:23, Ruth 1:12-13, 1 Sam. 1:6-7, Luke 1:25) because her felt telos was bound up with providing children (esp. sons). Naomi is hopeless not because she has lost her sons (though of course she weeps for that), but because she cannot provide new sons for her daughters-in-law.

comment What does “the grace of life” refer to in 1 Peter 3:7?
Yeah, didn't mean to limit it to sons; obviously there are the daughters of Zelophehad, etc.. I just mean there is a familial connection to the giver of the inheritance.

comment What does “the grace of life” refer to in 1 Peter 3:7?
You raise a good point about the tight connection. It seems to me still a very strange use of "heir", though, which conveys sonship. (Just thinking out loud.)

comment Why is “rega`” translated “peace” in Job 21:13?
Is your thought, then, that the word "peace" in English should be reserved as a technical word conveying the Hebrew concept of shalom?

comment Did John know about the Synoptics?
@JonEricson He only spends a couple of the 600+ pages on this question, so I wouldn't get it just for that; but overall I do recommend the book. (And thanks!)
