I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Is the “7th seal” opened before the “6th seal” book of Revelation
This covers the futurist approach quite well, but it would be helpful to at least have a paragraph or two noting how historicist, preterist, and idealist approaches deal with this issue and whether the outcome is any different for this particular question.

comment The number 40's “real meaning”
Really? Where to even start … … You don't think “3” might have some relation to the Trinity? You know the current calendar system that places the 0 year where it is didn't get assigned until much later right?

comment Why would Jesus look for figs out of season?
There may be something to the symbolism here, but this answer fails to engage the details of the text to show us HOW such a conclusion can be drawn. Where does the symbolic representation come from? How do we just discard the physical details in Mark's narrative like where and when this happened?

comment What does the word “Sword” mean in Mathew 10:24
Habakook you are off on the wrong foot here. Please slow down a second and actually read some of the posts @Daи linked you to. This isn't a place to answer Bible questions, it's a place specifically to study hermeneutics and the process of HOW interpretations are arrived at. As such this answer does not currently meet those expectations. Worse, the tone of your comment suggests you aren't interested in figuring out what this site is about. It is incumbent on you as an answerer to show why you think these pieces go together, not on readers to divine whether your source is "higher" or "lower".
