comment Contextually, which English translation/ Greek text seems more probable in Rev. 5:10?
But it is based on the context. I guess I'm having trouble understanding what you're after. Are you after the whole "living creatures" being included in the ruling party?

Present vs. Future is not as difficult as the NET translation notes make it seem.

comment Did Jesus endorse tithing for all when addressing the Pharisees?
This has the makings of a good answer. I was hoping you could work in a conversation about the actual texts in question. You make a leap from Torah to Paulos with a statement that, "the general concept behind tithing is support of a ministry." I think that the 1 Cor. 9 references allow you to make that transition, but I'd like to see how that loops back to address the actual question of Jesus' interaction with tithing and wealth.

@Nowhereman I'm looking forward to seeing more of your answers on this site. Additionally, your research sounds fascinating and I should like to read some of it.

I wish this answer got more attention. It's quite good and concise.

comment Why did the tabernacle use the colors blue, purple and scarlet?
@DerekScott I fear this is going to spiral out of control and so I'd like to clear the air. First, I would like to also extend Mike's welcome. I appreciate you putting yourself out there to answer a question with imagination and ingenuity. I apologize if anything in my tone has communicated criticism or ridicule. Let me just state that my comments are generally placed in order to help guide you toward an improved answer (regardless of whether or not I agree with it) that is logical and accurately represents an answer to the question.

comment Why did the tabernacle use the colors blue, purple and scarlet?
@DerekScott I'm basing it on my Biology degree. What you've asserted in your answer is not an accurate representation of the article that you cited. Additionally, I think that it's a flimsy analogy given the context.

"Blood in the veins is Purple." This is a myth.

comment How is literary dependence or relationship established?
I will say this ... you bring up an interesting distinction between "subjective" and "qualitative." Could you tease that out a bit more? (p.s. +1 from me because this answer may be helpful for future readers).

comment How is literary dependence or relationship established?
Thanks Noah. I'm quite familiar with the synoptic problem and the discipline of source criticism. I think I'm more interested in the methods that go into establishing the validity and veracity of claims made within the realm of you bullet point list.

comment Literary independence of the synoptics
I think that it will be important for you to specify what you mean by literary. Are you literally meaning literary (which would allow for oral tradition interdependence) or are you asking for folks who argue for no interdependence whatsoever?
