comment Does Peter allude to the stones removed in the Maccabbean revolt?
My initial response is that this is temple imagery but that its not likely related to the revolt. The audience profile doesn't really fit and would have been lost on them.

comment Where should the Messianic application begin and end in Jacob's blessing to Judah?
Please cite your sources. "Most everyone" is quite broad and such unsubstantiated claims erode credibility. Additionally, you're falling into at least one fallacy with your "no purpose" statement in the fourth paragraph. As this is a site for hermeneutics, and not just prophetic interpretation of historical events with reckless disregard for the significance of their historical and literary placement, please ensure that you cover these areas. Even Christian exegetes recognize the significance of these disciplines.

comment Does Theophilus of Antioch's statement have any bearing on interpreting Mathew 5:28?
Hiya. You have some very good thoughts in here but many of them are incomprehensible due to formatting. I was wondering if you would mind going through the answer and cleaning it up. Primarily, I'd like to see you stick with either Unicode Greek or the transliteration consistently throughout. Also, your πρὸς τὸ statement seems somewhat arbitrary (though correct) after a few citations of Matthew. I'd rather see a reference to Mounce or even something that says "Greek grammarians such as Mounce note ..."
