comment Why are the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) significant?
@swasheck - I see. Well, I just wanted to know how recent advancements in history, archeology, textual criticism, etc. have helped us clarify some points in the Bible that might've not been that clear to us, say, 200 years ago.

comment Why are the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) significant?
@swasheck - Why are they closely-related? One is about particular scrolls (Dead Sea Scrolls), another one is about anything, which is not biblical scrolls, one is about the Old Testament, the other one is about the New Testament.

comment Do we have such expressions as “the holiest” in the New Testament Greek?
"You form a superlatives by taking the adjective ἅγιος (holy) and adding ατοτος. I have not yet found any occurrences of this word in the Greek New Testament" - What about prepending πᾶς ('all') to an adjective? I mean such cases like παντοκράτωρ ('almighty') or παναγιότης ('all-holiness'). Do we have anything like that in the New Testament?

comment Was Greek Mark's second language?
"Similarly, Peter and John were likely not trained in Greek (see Acts 4:13)" - Why do you quote Acts 4:13 here? Given the Jews' hatred toward anything Greek shown in Acts 21:28, it seems to me that the high priests' thoughts of being learned and educated in Acts 4:13 was exclusively about the knowledge of the Law, which would, of course, involve the knowledge of Hebrew and Aramaic, but quite unlikely Greek. I mean, how do you know that Acts 4:13 implies teaching of Greek?

Thank you mike, but can you please explain what thin-fat-big-lipped mirrors are? If you can give a link to an image of such a mirror that will be great.

@Ray - So did he in fact use the word "mirror" there?

comment “Jesus said to them ”I am" (John 18:6) - Did Jesus break a taboo here?
"OK, I used ISA to locate עבודה as H5656. Is that a Strong's number?" - Yes, it is. The problem is that in the Bible this word is never used for prayer or devotion and doesn't even have a slightest connotation of that: blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/… Besides, OT uses other words for prayer, such as תְּפִלָּה , פָּלַל and לַחַשׁ and those don't have a connotation of work. What is ISA?

"Not realising that the word for prayer and devotion is the same word as Work - avodah" - What's the Strong's number for "avodah"?

"This phenomenon is exhibited by Watchman Nee's insistence that the Sabbath is put on hold" - As far as I know, there are many theologians who hold this view. Why do you specifically mention Watchman Nee here?
