comment What is Satan's relationship with God?
This probably belongs on C.SE. However, it could be edited to focus on the understanding of the text and not Absolute Truth or modern religious theology (i.e. it tells us nothing about Satan's relationship with God, but it can tell us a lot about how ancient Near Eastern literature viewed the relationship amongst divine entities, particularly the 'heavenly court' notion).

comment What historical reasons resulted in Revelation being included in most Christian canons?
@Tau I see your point, and with the latest edit, you gladly have my +1 :) - also, did you know Revelation is still not read aloud in Eastern Christian churches?

comment What historical reasons resulted in Revelation being included in most Christian canons?
I'm torn on this, I want to upvote it and downvote it at the same time! I think it's a good answer, right up until the last statement: "The argument of canonicity of Revelations did not really come into play until Preterism, and the advent of Modern Critical scholarship made it an issue in the 17th and 18th centuries." You've offered no support for this statement, and from my historical readings, it's false. There was considerable controversy about the book, so much so that it was not read in the early churches, thought to be a Montanist work by some (and still rejected by Nestorians).

comment What is it that Paul prays Ephesians will comprehend?
"...height and depth two measurements at right angles to that plane but in the same vertical dimension and therefore indicate only one dimension."

Sometimes if you comment in another browser window/tab you won't see it on the same post in another window/tab because of Javascript/Ajax sync issues. Refreshing the page always fixes it.

Hello, if you are using an encyclopedia or other source, you need to properly cite it. Otherwise it is plagiarism and will need to be removed. You've even left the reference to another article intact ("See Biblical cities, antiquity-").
