comment Is there a difference between the “meaning” and “application” of a text?
@Niobius So if I agreed with your interpretation of Paul's command, but disagreed that #2 was a correct application, would you say we agree on the meaning of the verse?

Likewise, in your example of Leviticus 26:4, you arrive at the "correct" application by arriving at the "correct" meaning. I don't understand how you distinguish between the two.

In your final example, wouldn't I have changed the meaning of your post with such a reading? If you are arguing that there is a difference between meaning and application, you would need to show that two readers who agree on the meaning can disagree on the application.

comment What are the arguments in favor of Markan priority?
+1 for a thoughtful answer. Could you elaborate though how you're constructing Luke 9:18. Was Mark 6:45 missing too? And how did the mountain get dropped from 46?
