this is a theological interpretation and i understand where you're going with it. however, if you visit our meta site you'll see our expectations for answers a bit more clearly.

comment What does the word, “World”, mean in John 3:16 ,in the light of John 17:9

comment What gender does the pronouns have that denote ruach or pneuma?
Yes it is grammatically correct and I've seen some draw parallels between ruach and sophia as both feminine gendered words. However, any attempts to draw specific conclusions as to the significance of how a word is gendered is severely misguided.

revised Reconciling the accounts of the calling of Simon Peter
I simply thought I could add to it to strengthen the argument by showing a place outside of John that shows Jesus interacting with Peter before he was called. I am new to this hermeneutics forum, so I hope that this has been in an acceptable format.

comment Is “wait” in Isaiah 40:31 active or passive?
@ColinFine yes. anachronistic fallacy akin to asking when someone saw a floating bug that looked like a piece of butter flying.

comment James 1:11 - “…its flower falls…”
+1. At least one notable scholar sees James as full of agrarian "Semitisms" that would appeal to diaspora Jews. This is one of them.
