@Anonymous have you been trained in or studied Greek or New Testament textual criticism?

comment “How did Jesus' ”teaching with authority“ differ from the Scribes?”
yes, things are a little different in these parts of the SE neighborhood, notably that we require a lot more from answers than many other sites (with the possible exception of Skeptics.SE). We want folks to approach answering like math homework (show your work, don't just give us answers/assertions) combined with writing for school (cite sources, develop ideas fully, write clearly, spell everything out). It can take a little getting used to.

comment What did Paul mean by “Arsenokoitēs”? Was he condemning homosexual activity as we know it today?
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. While this answers the question, it would be preferable to elaborate more here (summarize the relevant portions of the resource that answer this question), and provide the source for reference, rather than just copying and pasting from a lexicon.

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.

@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.

comment On what basis do translators translate echad in Daniel 10:13 to be one instead of first?
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?
