comment Why did Jesus tell the demon-possessed man to tell others about his healing in Luke 8:39?
We expect a bit more than "I would like to think" as the basis for answers around here. Rather that "he might have", can you actually propose an interpretation and defend how you arrived at it from the text?

comment Matt. 27:52 “tombs also were opened” apocalyptic symbolism?
@Tau Please see my follow up comments in chat starting here. I'm cleaning this space up a little as our comments now are likely not helpful to the original poster or readers.

comment Matt. 27:52 “tombs also were opened” apocalyptic symbolism?
@Tau It is really distracting (and not useful to others) when you use technical terms with broadly agreed upon meanings to mean something different than everybody else does by them. As this is not the first instance of this error, please note the normative use of the term Textual Criticism refers to a specific aspect of hermeneutics that deals with discrepancies between different source manuscripts of the same document. As far as I can make out your comment is not actually a reference to the issue of textual criticism, modern or otherwise.

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
Hey man please no more new posts! I already explained this once and have now done the cleanup work for you twice. If you have an improved version of an answer to post you need to edit this answer and replace its content. This allows people to compare previous revisions and see what you fixed and keeps to post ranking system consistent.

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
I think you've miss-understood the format here. Please don't make new posts. If you have a better to answer to offer than your original attempt, please edit the original post. If voters see an improvement they will then be able to change their votes and re-rank the post. But please don't throw stuff at the ceiling to see what sticks...put your best foot forward and then improve it. I've gone ahead and merged the content from your three answers into one, but you might want to review the history and see if there are things that need to be edited into the final version to make it complete.

comment What are the many Sabbaths referred to in scripture?
@Tau I avoided getting into the specifics of that issue because ① it didn't seem like the main problem the OP was facing, ② the issue of plurals still applies as described and ③ the sabbath years are an extension of the day concept but applied to the land rather than the people. On the other hand I did mention how that passage it different. If you thing there is a better way to clarify this all please feel free to post another answer.

comment What are the many Sabbaths referred to in scripture?
@JonathanChell Maybe I wasn't clear enough in my answer, but as I understood the question the OP was expecting "sabbaths" to refer to holy days other than the sabbath—other feast days perhaps—as if sabbath days were some general category of holy day rather than a reference to the weekly sabbath. The only inference I intended to make is that these are all references to the same weekly Sabbath and is only plural because it sometimes referrers to more than one week.
