@H3br3wHamm3r81 - I see. Thank you.

@H3br3wHamm3r81 - I don't have anything particular in mind. It's just that your point about possessive pronouns, which, as you rightly said, don't go along well with Tetragrammaton, could only be a 100% reliable method if we knew for sure that ALL instances of Kyrios in the N.T. were either used in the sense of "master" (owner, possessor) or as a means of rendering Tetragrammaton. However, we don't have such surety.

@H3br3wHamm3r81 - "Here's Constantine Tischendorf's notes" - Thanks, but unfortunately I don't have those notes with me. Is he talking there about Codex Sinaiticus?

@H3br3wHamm3r81 - "That is why κύριος is used for the Tetragrammaton in the LXX, and that is why the scope is so narrow" - The fact that translators used κύριος for rendering Tetragrammaton in the LXX does not at all mean that they could not have also used κύριος as another means of referencing to God. The translators' laxation in standards that you are talking about only proves it. Therefore, I think the answer to this question shouldn't be kept strictly within the considerations of Tetragrammaton.

Which manuscripts use θεός in that verse?

Jon, perhaps, I am missing something here, but is Κύριος in Jude 1:5 not a clear reference to God?! ("I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not")

"Certainly there are some instances where κύριος is being used as the equivalent to the Tetragrammaton יהוה, but these are the minority. Paulos certainly does not always (nor even mostly) use κύριος as an equivalent to the Tetragrammaton יהוה" - I a bit confused. Why necessarily narrow the scope of the question down to Tetragrammaton? It looks to me that the scope of OP's question is defined by the word "God", not just by one of God's names. So, in this case, "our Lord" can really mean and be equated to "our God" as using possessive pronouns with "God" (θεός) is absolutely correct in Greek.

comment How does Peter fit the events of Acts 2 into the apocalyptic imagery of Joel?
Well, in case, you are interested in reading those works and at the same time overwhelmed by their number, I suggest that you firstly read only two books there: "Ephesians via Romans" and "Foundations of Dispensational Truth" as they briefly summarize the whole teaching by Welch and Bullinger

Jon, have you ever read Welch's works? If not, please, go by this link: charleswelch.net/books.htm , find the book # 71 (named "Pentecost to Prison"), click on it, and then in the open book look at page 40. It seems to be covering exactly what you are asking about.
