comment Why is Isaiah 14:12-15 interpreted by some to refer to Satan?
Please clarify: “this is one of the things that makes the Septuagint so important, and you can see from the bit quoted above that this is absent from the Greek Isaiah.” — just what is “absent from the Greek Isaiah”?

@H3br3wHamm3r81, Jews believe the satan is an agent provocateur but is thereby doing what God commanded him to, not “fallen” or “rebellious”

comment Could the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” mean “tree of intelligence”?
Sermon aside, what is your take on the OP’s proposed explanation? Is it plausible? Are there flaws in the logic? (Other than “I prefer this other interpretation”.)

Note that in Biblical Hebrew, the usual form is “from ‹one small thing› to ‹another small thing›”. Example: Genesis 14:23, “from a thread to a shoelace”.

comment Where does the extra information about Melchizedek come from in Hebrews 7?
There is reference in Scripture to people blessing God, which would seem to negate your logic.

comment Did Avraham marry Hagar? Did Ya'akov marry Zilpah?
Marrying a barren wife’s maidservant for children was well-established ANE practice; your question is dependent on what the status of this relationship was. The Biblical text is ambiguous, so I don’t think it’s possible to answer you question from there, but ANE scholars might know this from other sources.
