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 What does the Greek word αἰῶνας refer to in Heb. 1:2?
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.

comment How did the widow have water for Elijah in 1 Kings 17?
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).

comment Why did Moses get away with intermarriage?
Re: your original post. If you have something you would like to discuss about the way this site functions you may do so on our Biblical Hermeneutics Meta site. Here on the main site answers are required to stick to directly answering the original questions. On the meta site you may solicit feedback form the community on issues concerning the nature of the site and the way we handle things here. I know the learning curve is steep, but we're willing to help. Before you come out of the gate swinging at the community here though you should read up on how we do things and what this site is about.

comment What is the context in Mark and Luke as regards the buying and preparing of the spices?
You make a number of allusions (e.g. to some stuff you say is in the Torah) but you don't actually give us references out quotes that can be verified. The same goes for historical and other assertions here. Sarah's edit is a big help to following your main point, but it is still nearly impossible to reconstruct your argument because you haven't given us all the pieces. With something that reads contrary to conventional wisdom, you will have to be more detailed in order for anyone to buy this.

Textual criticism and authorship are definitely more suited to the hermeneutics site...
