comment How should we contextualize Paul's “Jesus is accursed” in I Co 12:3?
(2) rest assured that that spirit is being led by the Holy Spirit. So, Paul is kind of giving them a spiritual guidance and at the same time narrows down the scope of spiritual diversity to the scope of the things pertaining only to the Holy Spirit. Having done that, he continues in verse 4 by looking now only at this new scope (the scope of the Holy Spirit) and telling them that this scope is also quite diversified (in terms of having different gifts and works), yet, unlike in verse 2, it all belongs to and is the realm of the Holy Spirit.

comment How should we contextualize Paul's “Jesus is accursed” in I Co 12:3?
(1) Perhaps, it is the version that I am using, but the verse 3 has actually never struck me as out of context here. In verse 2 Paul reminds them of their spiritually chaotic past, of how they were "led" and "carried away" as "they were led", having no guidance in the spiritual realm due to the objects of their worship (idols) being numb (v.2). Now the situation has changed - now they are being led by the Spirit that speaks. Now it is very easy to be oriented in the spiritual realm - just look at what things are being said. If (the spirit of) a man says "Jesus is the Lord", then

comment How many future resurrections are there in the New Testament?
Also, it kind of looks to me that not only Adam had access to God even after being banished from the garden. Cain, for example, still could communicate to God.

"The High Priest was the only man (the only Adam) with access to the Most Holy, which was a replica of the Garden, with its cherubim and the Law of God" - How are the cherubs and the law of God replica of a garden?! The only element in the tabernacle that would remotely remind me of a garden is the budding rod of Aaron. However, that would still look to me as quite a bit of a stretch to consider the tabernacle's Most Holy Place as a replica of a garden.

"Symbols are also used to describe resurrection in Revelation, not just the plain word" - Sure symbols are used elsewhere to describe resurrection, but I am talking about this particular passage. In this passage the resurrection is spoken about in plain words, not in symbols. If so, why then 1000 years in the very same passage should be taken symbolically?

"1000 years - because the Revelation is entirely "sign-ified" to John" - Yet you do take some things in this book at their literal meaning, for example, the act of resurrection. Why then resurrection is taken literally, but the 1000 year-period in the same passage figuratively?

"Just so, we see Jesus arrested and condemned in the Garden" - I've always thought that He was only arrested in the garden, but condemned in the Sanhedrin.

"The 1000 years of Revelation is a symbolic allusion to the administration of the Tabernacle" - How do you know that those are not real 1000 years?
