comment Was or wasn’t Shem’s son Arphaxad born on the ark?
Note that Shem was not necessarily the oldest of Noah’s sons.

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.

comment Should 1 Kings 19:3 read that Elijah “saw” or “was afraid”?
Deliberate ambiguity is actually fairly common in Scripture; and you know it’s deliberate because there are alternate words available for either meaning.

comment Why does the Septuagint contain non-Tanakh books?
The Septuagint proper comprises only the first five books of the Torah; the rest is an accretion of translations from various sources. So any religious book popular enough to exist in Greek translation—or any that were written in Greek—would have ended up in the general “Septuagint”.
