comment Where did James get the idea that breaking one commandment means breaking all?
Not an answer but I read this verse as more implying that no one is capable of keeping the whole law--hence all need God's grace and forgiveness.

comment Should The Creation Story in Genesis Be Understood as Metaphorical?
I'm going to see if I can close this question. Honestly I'd forgotten I'd asked it until recently and I can see that while I hoped for scholarly discussion of the subject it also elicits a lot of religious feeling too.

comment Should The Creation Story in Genesis Be Understood as Metaphorical?
I didn't ask if the account is literally the truth or not. I asked about evidence of authorial intent.

comment Why is “maranatha” in 1 Cor 16:22?
This is absolutely fascinating. I'm sure it's old hat to professionals in the field of Biblical scholarship but to an interested amateur like me this is a fascinating discussion.

comment What Evidence Supports The Gospel Of Thomas Being Q?
@JonathanChell Excellent point but I was under the impression (perhaps mistaken) that the general consensus of scholars is that there was a Q document at some point in history.

comment What Evidence Supports The Gospel Of Thomas Being Q?
I seem to recall the theory being put forth in "The Five Gospels" but my memory may be flawed.

comment What Is The Aorist Tense Of A Verb?
Well Dan, not that it really makes any difference but the FAQ you're referencing is from August 6. You'll notice my question was posted back in February of 2012--long before the FAQ was written. I'd close the question myself if I could but I would also say you're being a bit pedantic.

comment What Is The Aorist Tense Of A Verb?
By the way @Dan just because there's something on Wikipedia doesn't make this totally off-topic. Reread my question: part of my question is regarding how the aorist verb impacts translation.
