comment How is 2 Maccabees 12:40-46 to be understood?
We (I am Eastern Orthodox) do not believe in purgatory, but we do have a concept of a purgative experience after death for some. It would be hard to explain it all in comments.

This is not the place to refute or support the theology of one text on the basis of others - but we can explain the meaning of the text in its context. Hence my edit.

comment Does Paul of Tarsus quote Talmud?
The Talmud wasn't written until at least 100-150 years after Paul wrote his letters. And parts of it weren't finished until close to 450 years later. This question is unanswerable and shows no initial research effort.

comment How old was Samuel when Hannah took him to the temple?
Please give sources for who are making these claims. Saying, "somebody said...", "most think..." means nothing without any examples of anyone who actually think that.
