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)! :)

comment What does it mean when it says,“There is a sin unto death”
this is actually a duplicate, and you apparently knew this as you copied and pasted your answer from there to here. In the future, please VTC and don't answer questions you know to be duplicates (in this case you could comment linking to your answer there). I say this because I was about to merge these so your answer would appear there, only to discover it is already there.

comment Are the Rabbinic rules of hand washing before eating bread related to their ruling that the scriptures were unclean?
As per the comments here from 2012 which indicate this is actually a question better suited for MY.SE, I've closed this.

comment not wishing that “any” should perish from 2 Peter 3:9
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. Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about. The chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts. I added the specific text here, feel free to change it if you prefer another English translation.
