revised Does the Bible mention unicorns?
Either this is an answer or it isn't—saying it's not an answer while posting the answer space is not an option. If this is expected to answer the question, present it as such. If not, it just shouldn't be posted.

comment What is God's purposes for the two witnesses?
"What does the Bible say about X?" type questions are really off topic for this site. As far as I can tell this isn't a question about specific issues in the texts you included either so applying normal hermeneutical methods to them won't help answer the question to your satisfaction. This is really more of a Biblical Theology thing.

comment Meaning of the Parable of the Sower
Even after reading this twice I have no idea what point you are trying to make or how you think this directs us to the meaning of the parable as asked about in the question. Notably lacking is anywhere that you actually show how you arrived at the connections you have.

comment Luke 10:18 Satan's Name?
Luke would have been originally written in Greek. I don't think Hebrew is where you should be starting your research on this issue.

revised Was Jacob a mere passive player during the events of Genesis 29 and 30?
edit out some of the gratuitous crass (it still needs a more complete rewrite to ask about the textual issue rather than spending its energy begging for a reaction)

comment Why did Jesus tell the demon-possessed man to tell others about his healing in Luke 8:39?
We expect a bit more than "I would like to think" as the basis for answers around here. Rather that "he might have", can you actually propose an interpretation and defend how you arrived at it from the text?

comment Matt. 27:52 “tombs also were opened” apocalyptic symbolism?
@Tau Please see my follow up comments in chat starting here. I'm cleaning this space up a little as our comments now are likely not helpful to the original poster or readers.

comment Matt. 27:52 “tombs also were opened” apocalyptic symbolism?
@Tau It is really distracting (and not useful to others) when you use technical terms with broadly agreed upon meanings to mean something different than everybody else does by them. As this is not the first instance of this error, please note the normative use of the term Textual Criticism refers to a specific aspect of hermeneutics that deals with discrepancies between different source manuscripts of the same document. As far as I can make out your comment is not actually a reference to the issue of textual criticism, modern or otherwise.

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
Hey man please no more new posts! I already explained this once and have now done the cleanup work for you twice. If you have an improved version of an answer to post you need to edit this answer and replace its content. This allows people to compare previous revisions and see what you fixed and keeps to post ranking system consistent.

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
I think you've miss-understood the format here. Please don't make new posts. If you have a better to answer to offer than your original attempt, please edit the original post. If voters see an improvement they will then be able to change their votes and re-rank the post. But please don't throw stuff at the ceiling to see what sticks...put your best foot forward and then improve it. I've gone ahead and merged the content from your three answers into one, but you might want to review the history and see if there are things that need to be edited into the final version to make it complete.
