comment What does the word “Sword” mean in Mathew 10:24
@user2479 your deeper question is a theological question, not a textual question. It would be better asked on C.SE. Remember that here we stop short of applying the text, and we are not a Christian (or any other religious) site.

comment Which was copied from which: 2 Peter 2 or Jude?
no problem. Sounds good. If I get a chance I will try to answer this one. I purchased and read a book by Tommy Wasserman which deals with this - he even stopped by here one time but didn't have time to contribute. He's probably the world expert on Jude. I just am short on time for writing a quality answer right now.

If the other question answers this question, let me know and we can close this one as a duplicate. I know the questions are not identical, but the accepted answer may actually answer this question in which case we could just forward users to that question. But if not, we should definitely keep this question. Just let me know. Great question BTW
