comment What external evidence do we have for who wrote the Gospel of John?
my apologies for originally closing this. We already have a question asking for internal evidence of authorship of John's gospel.. So what I've done is focus this on the external evidence to avoid overlap/duplication. For internal evidence, be sure to see the other question.

comment Is the NLT's version of Romans 13:7 a valid interpretation?
I've removed the tangential digression. As you've pointed out, this text was written to citizens of the ancient Roman Empire. We stop short of applying these texts to modern nation-states such as the USA on this site. We prefer to stick with the text and explain its meaning in its original context. Your introduction is a good start towards this.

According to our site guidelines, "It's OK to a degree for an answer to include personal anecdotes and other tangents, where this adds flavour and character, so long as the main line of an answer is supported, connecting the dots starting from the text. It's also ok to include opinions so long as they are relevant and labelled as your opinion or belief. Opinions and tangents should be garnishes, not the entire meal. If a post is essentially an opinion-based argument or testimony, it doesn't fit and will need to be removed or edited."

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. Your beginning appears to be the introduction to a good answer, but then it seems you got derailed.

@Onlyheisgood. we expect posts to explain their conclusions and connect the dots within the post, i.e. reproduce any required material needed to understand your position in your own words (or quote with a proper citation).

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
it's not academia vs. (something?) here, I'm genuinely failing to understand your point. I don't see how you're connecting these two. The direct-object marker isn't being used as an object nor in direct discourse, so I'm struggling to see the connection. There is no requirement to be academic (although it is certainly favorable), but merely to connect the dots, i.e. show your work. I'm struggling to understand your ... connections.

comment Meaning of (et)“את” and (v'et)“וְאֵ֥ת” in Genesis 1:1
You have insufficiently connected the dots between this and the Revelation passages. How are you connecting a direct-object marker as the direct object itself, and then anachronistically reading a passage out of context back into it?

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 doesn't show its work, which is a requirement on this site. Don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it. Cite sources that the other answer is a later development in Hebrew language study. And Revelation?
