Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Notably, we're a Q&A site, not a forum.

comment How are we to interpret the Moon turning into blood, in Joel 2:31 and Rev 6:12?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. We aren't a typical forum, we're a Q&A site, and we expect all posts to show their work. You've done a good job for the first part of the question, but how is it different from the Moon simply turning dark (the second part of the question)?

comment Does the use of “when” rather than “if” in Matthew 6 imply a necessity?
Except this isn't a traditional forum, it's a Q&A site where we expect posts to show their work, which is a requirement on this site. Don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it. You're fine on this since you did show which works are cited, but in the future please treat this more like writing a paper than like posting on a forum.

That's what footnotes are for ;)

@PatFeguson 10-4 thanks for clarifying. It would be good to cite in your answer where you got the translation of the Fathers from (and who translated it, if known). This helps others verify your findings.

even HALOT has page numbers. You could just write "entry for אחד and then cite the source, that would be fine, even better, quote it here for others to see that אחד and רישון have distinct meanings. The idea is not just making assertions without showing us how you derived them. Think math homework, not forum.

yes, so you should cite an up-to-date one, i.e. the specific page number and whatnot where others can verify this information.

This answer would be greatly strengthened by citing a source such as a Hebrew lexicon. We don't care about what you know if you don't also tell us how you know it.

Are you sure they disagreed or might this be the English translation, i.e. did you consult their works in the original language?

comment What did Paul mean by “Arsenokoitēs”? Was he condemning homosexual activity as we know it today?
Please explain more and cite some of these works where relevant. Develop this more. This is the beginning of a good answer, but much more could be said. I.e. show your work. Show me how your sources use this term. You've shown me a later French work, not a Greek one, and a link to a lexicon entry that proves this word means "sodomite." That doesn't appear to prove your point. Go through specific quotes and break them down. A good answer here takes time and effort. As it stands, this has my downvote.
