comment Omission of 'fasting' in Mark 9:29
@Davïd, neither purposeful nor accidental is appealing in the realm of text criticism, but we have to deal with all the possibilities and not just which one is more appealing to us. Personally, I am no longer sure which to prefer. Most of my work has been in the OT, so I never had to check the history of this verse.

comment Omission of 'fasting' in Mark 9:29
"one of the things that would stand no chance of omission" I'm understanding that to mean "no chance of purposeful omission; is that correct?

comment Noah's father Lamech and the Lord's curse
It might also be of note that Lamech is one of two patriarchs whose father was still active after him. Enoch was translated before the death of Jared. Methusaleh and Jared have the longest life spans in Genesis 5 while their sons have the shortest.

comment Why was crocodile (תנין) from Exodus 7:10 translated as snake or serpent?
@DavidH, The Jewish Encyclopedia says the ancient Hebrew word for crocodile is unknown. There are a couple of candidates in the Hebrew Bible, but nothing described quite fits. It's a good article on the critter.

comment Did Jeremiah complain about corrupt torah in Jeremiah 8:8?
@JimThio while I don't consider the prophets and apostles perfect, I do conclude (not assume) that what they recorded as Scripture is correct. That is, I do not believe them sinless (except Jesus), but what they wrote is inspired and what God wanted them to write.

comment What are the arguments used by literal interpreters of Ezekiel's temple (Ezek. 40-48)?
Yeah, this is a good question--focused on a text and one particular hermeneutic for it.
