comment What is the meaning behind the parable of Children in the Marketplace in Luke 7:31-35?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. Could you elaborate more on how you came to the conclusion Jesus is quoting Aesop's fables? Ideally cite some scholars who think so (we are interested in what experts think). Please don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it.

comment Why is the observation that “it was good” missing on the second day?
to an extent, it is always helpful to translate or find English resources. My point is that if you only have a Hebrew source and translating all but the relevant parts would be tangential to an answer, don't hesitate to link to the Hebrew text. Make no mistake about it, our goal is to build a site for experts - it's ok to require prerequisite knowledge (most other SE sites do).

thanks! Although note that linking to the Hebrew is also fine. Generally speaking, an expert in Biblical Studies likely can read Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, and often also French and German.

Hey Bruce, glad to see your answer! :) Would you mind checking out What would be the best way to present ancient Jewish sources? We've clarified what we're looking for in Jewish citations a little more, as this will help all participants. Thanks!

comment Are there differences in how the Spirit empowers people?
Just about everything doesn't follow from the preceding section. For instance, how is the Greek word's meaning relevant unless you are making a point using the Septuagint (which you do not appear to be doing)?

comment Are there differences in how the Spirit empowers people?
This makes no sense. Keep in mind that part of showing work is clearly connecting the dots beginning from the text. Much of your conclusion is non sequitur.

comment What does the oil in the ten virgins parable represent?
Well said, rhetorician. My point is that this question appears it may be asking for application: "our life... we are to pay... our life..." etc. The OP should note we stop short of this and focus solely on the text in its original context. We are not an exclusively Christian site, so such prescriptions should not be imposed on readers.

Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. 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. Also please note that this is not a Christian site, we focus on the text in its original context.
