be sure to read what we're looking for in answers and about what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. Our community has different standards for participation than you may be used to.

comment What does “The Lord said to my Lord” mean in Psalm 110?
I've edited the question to focus it on the Psalm being asked about. Here on BH.SE we ask about the meaning of specific texts in their original context, language, etc. I've retained the NT portion of the question, but made it secondary to understanding the Psalm itself on its own grounds (i.e. when it was originally written, before the NT was written). Keep in mind that here on BH.SE we welcome all perspectives that take the text seriously, not just Christian ones.

comment Who wrote the end of Deuteronomy?
it's better, but it still doesn't tell us which commentators, i.e. we can't see the work of the source itself. But I also recognize that may not be available to you, at least now readers can evaluate the source for themselves, and can see that it only reflects scholarship up until the 19th century. You still don't defend why the best answer is from Deut. 31:24, you just assert it (the text doesn't say Joshua wrote this so please connect the dots more. Are there linguistic similarities between the end of Deut. and Joshua? Any other external evidence?)

comment Meaning of Matthew 16:28
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. This is a great question! However, it's already been asked here before. The good news is that you don't have to wait for answers! You can head over to the existing question and read them now :)

comment Who wrote the end of Deuteronomy?
"Modern critical scholarship...", "Some commentators..." -- who? These assertions mean nothing without citations of specific scholars, which is what we're looking for here. Show your work: support any and all assertions. The Joshua argument is a good one as it can be made from the text, but even so, do any experts agree with this argument? Cite them.

comment In 1 John 3:6, is “keeps on sinning” a good translation of ἁμαρτάνει?
This is where the joys of Koine Greek linguistics come into play, notably aspect vs. time. More later if I have time (no pun intended)! :)
