comment What is hermeneutics?
because we already have a question that contrasts exegesis and hermeneutics, I've edited out that portion of this question to prevent it being closed as a duplicate.

comment Can GOD be called Powerful if He has an equal?
Hello Vince, this is not the kind of question that works here. Be sure to read this article which discusses what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible.

comment What is the meaning of “Sorceress” in Exodus 22:18?
What does the definition of magic/sorcery from a European play written in the 16th century CE have to do with a Near Eastern concept from the 6th century BCE?

comment Isaiah 46:10 and the implications of verse 11: Do any modern theologians dare pay attention to verse 11?
This seems to be a question beginning from an idea rather than from the text. Why not just ask what the verse meant in its original context? The very notions of (Western) determinism and Calvinism are quite anachronistic when read back into this text.

comment What is the oldest existing copy of Genesis?
Hello, I know that you wrote this for another site and that this was migrated, but here at BH.SE we have a requirement for showing your work, which in this case would mean citing sources to back up many of your claims. Could you please edit to include sources/references for your assertions? Thanks!

comment How did Paul “see that someone had faith” in Acts 14?
We don't allow questions that are 'searching for a text', so I made a slight edit to focus this question on the specific text being asked about.

comment What is the Godhead?
A literature review of ancient Greek literature's use of πλήρωμα τῆς Θεότητος would be a good start to understanding what Paul might have meant and what his original hearers would have understood, in addition to a word study on Θεότητος itself.

comment Women in Galatians
In fact, this question probably needs to be refocused on the meaning of the Galatians passage since we have elsewhere dealt with the Corinthians passage ad nauseam. I've made an edit to this effect.
