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.

revised What is the meaning of the bread of the presence being changed out on a Sabbath?
rewrote as an example of how to focus on the _question_, not on what you think the answer is; this leaves the question open to be answered by whatever perspectives that there are and gives answers something to build on rather than dealing with your frame of view

revised In Heb 6:4, What does it mean to “again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame”
1) applying the text to the 21st century is not in scope for this site. Since it had bearing on your main answer so I left part of that but without deliberately using application language. 2) removed gratuitous references to 'Jew' a term that has multiple meanings in a non-religious context.
