revised Do 2nd Peter 3:12 and Amos 5:18 contradict each other in their advice in regard to the day of God?
cleaned up wording to eleminate unecessary cruft and cut straight to the chase so people aren't first confused when reading this

comment Are the judgement's in Joel 3:2, Matthew 25:31-32, and Revelation 20:12 referring to the same event?
Can you edit this to indicate what you mean by "difference"? Are you expecting the same words (you know they were written in different languages right?) or that they refer to the same event or what?

This question could use a little more explanation. What exactly (in prose) do you think the contradiction would be here?

comment How is the New World Translation's usage of “Jehovah” controversial?
@TRiG Whether this is the "best" answer or not could be disputed but that it is an answer does't seem to be the issue here. In spite of not naming the translation it does address the issue that makes it controversial. See for example the second to last paragraph. That's what NWT did.

comment What is the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics?
Are you sure you don't have your terms cross-wired in part of this answer?

comment Hermeneutically, how do we reconcile Jesus' teaching on loving our enemies and YHWH's telling Israel to destroy their enemies?
I vacillated about migrating it to Christianity but opted against it because I would have to promptly close it there too as it is not addressed at any particular theological tradition. That being said the easiest way I see to to make this workable on SE would be to fix it up for C.SE and if you'd like to go ahead with that I can migrate it there. I don't see any way it even comes close to working on this site.

comment Hermeneutically, how do we reconcile Jesus' teaching on loving our enemies and YHWH's telling Israel to destroy their enemies?
No matter how many times the word "hermeneutically" is inserted here, reconciling apparent issues between OT and NT teachings is clearly a doctrinal issue. As this question does not start from a specific text nor is it about the general field of hermeneutics it is off topic for this site.

comment What do the words “fear and trembling” in Philippians 2 refer to?
I've migrated this to Biblical Hermeneutics because in the absence of a doctrinal framework which you are questioning, "what does X mean" questions are off topic on Christianity. If you'd like to question what the interpretations of a specific theological tradition are then by all means ask there but you must specify.

comment What does “sit” mean in the scripture “The prostitute who sits on many waters.”
As other answers demonstrate it is likely that the general conclusion of this answer isn't far off the mark, but arriving at this conclusion by comparing other English language usages is a completely bogus hermeneutical method. This answer is not useful as far as teaching people how to find answers.

comment What are the translations of the Greek word “monogenes” in Ancient Versions?Is it “only” or “only-begotten”?
Josephus and Plato are not ancient translations of the Bible, they are examples of usage in other literature. None of the other content here appears to be ancient translations. I don't think this does much to answer the original question.

comment Does Exodus explain itself as to why God hardens Pharaoh's heart in chapter 4?
@andrepd No worries. I've closed the question again as it appears this direction is not in line with your intent (which is fine) but if there was some aspect of the text that interested you (or this catches the interest of somebody else who wants to tweak and run with ti) we could certainly re-open it focused on whatever the perceived textual issue is.
