comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
@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.

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?

Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about (note that the chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts).

@RonKyle great point! And yet another reason why this question is unclear / difficult to answer.

Hey @oz1cz your username seemed to follow a familiar pattern, then I discovered it is indeed your callsign ;) Just an FYI, there is also an SE site dedicated to amateur ("ham") radio if you're interested! Welcome to BH.SE!

comment What does Jesus mean in Luke 5:36-39? (new wine into old wineskins)
no problem. You're free to express your perspectives fully using descriptive language ("I believe X", or "From a Christian perspective...", etc.). The goal is simply not to prescribe praxis to your readers here (i.e. "you should do this"). Check out What about preaching? Adding food for thought is fine, simply use descriptive language to do so and you'll be just fine :)

Whilst this does partially answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here (summarize the relevant portions of the resource that answer this question), and provide the link for reference. Unfortunately links go away over time, so having the relevant material here is best.
