comment How should James 2:18 be translated?
Punctuation is not part of the original text and the grammar of the source text lends itself to a degree of speculation. Please cut the weasel words "painfully" and "obvious" and the other filler ("I can't figure out ...") and shore up this answer a bit. You've missed a significant portion of the debate.

comment If a “house divided cannot stand” how did non-disciples cast out demons?
This is rooted in a false dilemma. This false dilemma is rooted in the insistence that those whom Jesus did not know are necessarily of Satan.

Could you pleas explain the relevance of these observations to the question?

comment Where can I find Greek and Hebrew plain text sources?
No doubt I agree with everything you've said. I really do. I've my Master's in New Testament and am particularly keen on Greek grammar, Source and Textual Criticism. Your question is certainly germane to the field but not necessarily to the site. As I said before, join us in The Library which is a more appropriate location for such a conversation :)

there's also the unbound bible project at biola. i've combined the sblgnt with james tauber's parsing and have a postgresql database and am currently working with a SQL Server database too.

I don't debate the value of electronic texts - I've got my own ideas for them. I'm just saying that I don't think that this is the place for this question.

Hiya. Just wanted to let you know that I voted to close this question, not because it's bad but because it's off-topic. However, if you ever wanted to come into The Library I'd love to chat about this. I've found some great projects and we can nerd out like crazy talking about texts.

comment What else can “Fifteen cubits from above” in Gen 7:20 mean?
@KimMcCooeye I'll echo what Monica said. Welcome! Also, when you do elaborate on an answer, please just edit the answer itself so that it becomes a well-rounded response and not a forum thread. :). Thanks again, and welcome!

comment Should Q be considered a Gospel?
"Gospel" is really only a genre within the Christian realm. Otherwise it's more of a "history" or "biography."

comment Should Q be considered a Gospel?
References to Q should be limited to more abstract terms like "theory" or "potential source(s)" or just simply as "Q." We could also say the same as Proto-Luke and Proto-Matthew and Proto-Mark. Attempting to tie these "documents" to any current document is fun and an excellent brain challenge, but isn't really worth debating how it should be categorize.

comment Does the LXX of Proverbs 1:7 have influence on the use of εὐσέβεια in the NT?
I don't know yet but those authors would seem to have the most contact with proverbs. In fact, James is often categorized as NT wisdom literature

Fabulous. This went from interesting to awesome. James, Jude, and Hebrews should be good starting points.

Hi there, and welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics. This is an interesting question, but I suspect there's a question behind this question. Would you mind sharing a bit more about the motivation behind asking this question? Perhaps then we can focus answers to that end and be able to answer your actual question.

comment Were they Roman guards who watched Jesus' tomb in Matthew 27?
Indicative is also the unmarked, default mood. It's difficult to find much value in building a case for an answer based primarily on this mood so I appreciate you drawing out the morphological overlap of this form. However, I'd also like to see you draw out more of the Greek grammar in the immediate context of this passage and expand the study beyond a local word study that focuses on the mood. You clearly have a bit more knowledge in the realm of linguistics-please share it a bit more expansively.

comment Why is the Bible so repetitive?
@JonEricson a tautology is also a grammatical figure of speech/construct that involves repetition of the same concept, or sense, using different words.

comment What is “apocalyptic” literature?
Would you say that apocalyptic literature existed, though? I'd say that the definition of "Apocalypticism" is a bit narrow, though. Finally, would you mind posting your own thoughts if you're going to post? I'm fine with quotations as supporting evidence but to make that the entire content of the post doesn't give us insight.

comment A word for the fallacy of assuming whatever brings God the most glory is the correct interpretation a text?
Could it possibly be a category of logical fallacy?

comment Can we harmonize the two meetings of David and Saul?
Hi and welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics. I was wondering if you'd be willing to explain a bit more what you mean by your answer. Perhaps include the requisite references and why they are important to your answer as it relates to the question.

comment Is Paul suggesting that Philemon release Onesimus from slavery?
Hi there, welcome to BH.SE. I was wondering if you could edit some punctuation into your answer to make it a bit more comprehensible. Thanks!
