revised Is it possible that the “name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” is “Jesus”?

comment What did Sarah mean by calling Abraham her “lord”?
Keep in mind that etymology and current meaning in context are orthogonal issues. Check out Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon.

comment Which Documentary Hypothesis sources does Jesus quote from?
Unfortunately this question is too subjective for this Q&A format.

comment What is the difference between John 1:1c and Acts 28:6c?
It sounds like you might be confusing the Greek with the Coptic, and perhaps relying heavily on Jehovah's Witness and/or Seventh Day Adventist scholarship, which in my understanding are the only groups to argue for this (untenable) linguistic connection (θεὸν is clearly accusative and thus not nominative). But I'll be interested to see the responses.

comment What is the meaning of the repetition of “holy” in Isaiah 6:3?
"Judaism has a tendency to do things in three times (actually all Semitic cultures)." Please provide support for this statement - you've offered none.

comment Why didn't Sarah refuse to go to Abimelech?
Could you support this with sources rather then pure speculation? I.e. references about ancient Mesopotamian and Babylonian familial relations, etc. We call this 'showing your work' and it's a requirement here.

@curiousdannii note my edit, that comment was intended for kmote, not you. My apologies for the false ping. I've retained your comments since they are focused on factual issues.

@kmote please use comments to point out factual issues with the post, vague disagreements such as 'anti-conservative bias' are not constructive.

@DickHarfield I agree with those accusations as being unhelpful. I'd love to see you incorporate your citations of Ehrman and Mack into the post (comments are temporary).

Please cite actual scholars rather than saying 'a majority of scholars' (I can name several myself, but this is part of showing your work). It looks like you have some good data in comments, please integrate it into the answer.

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
Welcome to BH.SE, I made a slight edit to remove a portion of the question that is off topic here (searching for a text). We stick to specific texts and explaining them in their original historical, linguistic, and literary setting(s). This is an interesting question, glad to have you!

comment Was Elijah REALLY taken to Heaven?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. I'm not going to unilaterally close it (but I'd be in support of community close votes), but this assumes a lot theologically (that these texts are contiguous, that they are speaking about the same thing, that there is a need to resolve any perceived or actual contradiction between the two texts, etc.) and doesn't really start from a specific text.
