comment What is the author's purpose in writing Acts?
Interesting premise. Although I'd argue that all approaches to the text bring bias, so Christian interpretation is just as eisegetical as applying source-critical methods, I found the answer interesting. +1

comment What is the proper translation of Proverbs 22:6?
I removed the portion of this question asking for additional questions. Questions that are "searching for a text" are off topic here. Otherwise excellent question.

comment In Acts 22:16 - Which Verb is “Washed Away” Derived From?
Etymology is not directly correlative to how a word could or should be translated in a later context.

comment What is the meaning of 'the Sun and the Moon' in Joseph's dream?
I should clarify that we do welcome Christian perspectives, but we require that you "show your work", i.e. connect the dots. You jumped straight from the Hebrew Bible to texts written by different authors thousands of years later in a different language. Please begin from the text itself in its original context and then bring in Christian hermeneutical approaches (stating the specific approach(es) being used and citing experts who have also used these approaches ideally)

be sure to take our site tour and read about what makes us different from other sites that study the biblical texts. Most notably, this is not a Christian site.

Please deal with the text in its original historical, linguistic, and literary context before applying later texts anachronistically.

comment What does John 16:10 mean? The Spirit will convict the world “concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see me”
I made a slight edit to focus this on the original audience rather than on modern religious followers. Keep in mind that we focus solely on the original context of the text without its application to modern religious groups.
