revised What is the significance of the names of the pillars in Solomon's temple?
this isn't a place to advertise upcoming books—if you can answer the question in a post here then great, and a link to a book (that was available) might be appropriate, but you have to actually answer the question in place first

comment Do the specific gifts the father gives to the prodigal son have any special significance?
@rhetorician If you ask me the "teller" of the whole Bible, the centerpiece that is woven through every story is Jesus. But we're talking about tagging here man—and there all all sorts of things told by or about Jesus that don't benefit from the jesus tag. This one is about Jesus audience and the times and culture he was speaking to, not about his own person. Tags are a taxonomy for the site and should reflect the scope of each question. Just because the parable itself might be about Jesus or he was the speaker doesn't make this question about his person.

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.

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.
