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 there a case to be made that Luke wrote the book of Hebrews?
See also the existing questions Would it matter if the ID of 'Auctor' was revealed and who are the potential candidates? and Did Paul write the Epistle to the Hebrews? — I would suggest that answers to this question stick to examining just the bits about how Luke might have been involved and leave the other suggestions to be dealt with on the more general questions.

The greyed out post is a function of the fact that it is heavily downvoted. Voting indicates community consenses on whether a post is generally considered correct and/or useful. Downvoted posts are usually so because the community things they are not useful or incorrect. The grey-out helps take the focus away from such posts so new visitors concentrate on the things that the community has marked as useful.

See also What does it mean for the kingdom of heaven to suffer violence? for a broader treatment of this verse, not just the issue of "violence".

comment What does it mean for the kingdom of heaven to suffer violence?
See also What is the meaning of "violence" in Matthew 11:12? for a specific treatment of the work "violence" in this verse. Answers to this question might want to concentrate on the way all the concepts in the verse tie together rather than that specifically.

comment What does it mean for the kingdom of heaven to suffer violence?
@nickalh This site is the way to address this question to a broad audience. The alternative is that it would be outright closed on C.SE because it does not have any scope. In order to ask this question there it would need to be addressed to a specific theological framework. Without that it is what (for lack of a better term) we call "truth questions" which are off-topic entirely.

comment Could the Gospel of Matthew be dependent on Luke's Gospel?
I'm sure the names and facts involved here are relevant, but this answer seems too short on opinion to me. That may seem like an odd complaint, but as someone who is not an expert in this particular issue this answer doesn't help me gain any perspective. Are the scholars mentioned "respected"? Are they in the majority or minority? Is this just a few examples or an exhaustive run-down of the support? Are you able to draw a conclusion to the question title?

comment Are the words “wife” and “woman” the same in Hebrew and Greek?
@JimThio Watch your language man. Throwing around gratuitous terms that don't belong in an academic setting is not allowed here. I edited that one out for you but it will not be tolerated in the future.

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
Compounding the issue of Strong's being the wrong tool to define what a word means, you appear to have referenced at entry that is a known error.

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
You appear to have mistakenly used a concordance rather than a lexicon to define a word. In reviewing the actual usage instances your statement that «"royal" is βασίλειον typically means palace» seems to be unsubstantiated. After that this becomes pretty sketchy as far as hermeneutic process goes. Can you provide something a little more robust to back this up?
