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.

revised What is the meaning of the bread of the presence being changed out on a Sabbath?
rewrote as an example of how to focus on the _question_, not on what you think the answer is; this leaves the question open to be answered by whatever perspectives that there are and gives answers something to build on rather than dealing with your frame of view

comment How did the widow have water for Elijah in 1 Kings 17?
@rhetorician Do you see how different a wavelength that comment is on? I stopped after resolving the perceived issue in the text, you are stretching my answer to apply to Californian politics. Even in comments let's keep the venue in mind. Why are we here? To examine the text and understand it on its own terms. What we do with that knowledge is the scope of a different venue.

revised In Heb 6:4, What does it mean to “again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame”
1) applying the text to the 21st century is not in scope for this site. Since it had bearing on your main answer so I left part of that but without deliberately using application language. 2) removed gratuitous references to 'Jew' a term that has multiple meanings in a non-religious context.

comment How does John use the Feast of Dedication in John 10?
Please use less ellipsis () and instead actually use the space here to fully explain the relevant issues. This is almost impossible to follow. You can use the edit link below your post to improve it.

Somebody took care of some of the issues in your original question and I have migrated it to the site where that question is on topic. Please see the comments on the version at CSE for some hints on what other related questions you could ask. Your original question version can be viewed here for reference if you need it.

Sorry about the hacked together first version of my answer. This site does not lend itself to missives typed from mobile. I've fixed it up a bit so that I'm at least not embarrassed by the 'accept'.

comment What would Jesus' qualifications have been for a “worthy” person for the disciples to stay within the Matthew 10 narrative?
Please review the way I edited this question so that you have a better idea what our expectations are. You didn't even include a question body in your original. I have tried to write a suitable one for you, but we will expect some investment on your part to develop your own questions in the future. We know this isn't easy, but asking questions here is expected to take some work to do well.

revised What is Luke's purpose for recording this narrative and ultimately Jesus' reason to express this account of the rich man and Lazarus to those present?
marked quoted massage (probably not necessary to even include this, but for readability at least set it off with formatting)

Removed bit that was a clarification on the question rather than an answer (has been edited into the question).
