comment Why was Zacchaeus saved according to Jesus?
@Soldarnal - Although Luke doesn't explicitly mention "Faith", using a cross reference to Gal 3:7 allows us to assume that Luke was implying it... Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.

comment Who subjected the creation to futility in Rom. 8:20-21?
Interesting point. Then, maybe, I should have worded my answer as "God subjected the earth to futility because of Adam's sin."?

comment What was Eve's role in relation to Adam?
I just came across a verse that seems to contradict my thoughts regarding "created in the image of God" is applied to both male and female. The verse being 1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. I'm not sure if there is a connection there, but I thought it was worth throwing it out there.

comment What role does the Holy Spirit play in hermeneutics?
A relevant passage to back up fumanchu's comment is 1 Corinthians 2:6-14. Highlights include these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit.; ...no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God; Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God; And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual; ...and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned

comment What was Eve's role in relation to Adam?
@JackDouglas - I was specifically responding to the question or is there anything in the text to suggest what we might call "equality" between Adam and Eve?. The key term might call. I failed to clarify that I did not consider/respond to the generalized title-question What was Eve's role in relation to Adam?. If I were to reply to that particular question, then I would have certainly mentioned the authority position that Adam has been given over Eve - which, I believe is clearly taught in Genesis and the Bible as a whole.

I would say it goes beyond the sense of authority or dominion. Authority or dominion was a position in creation that was given to man by God (Gen 1:26). However made in the image seems to refer to the nature of man which is in contrast to the other creatures. Take a look at how Gen 1:25-26 reads - all the animals were made after their own kind whereas man was made in God's image.
