comment Interpretations of Elihu in Job
Revelation has no place in a question about Job. This is not a Christian site. We stick to the text (in its original context) and must show work for going beyond this. More than a perceived topic must be shared when citing other texts outside of the work asked about (i.e we don't proof-text - stick to the historical, linguistic, and literary aspects of the text - not later religious interpretation).

revised What is the meaning of the Hebrew word that is translated in Genesis 7:21 as creeping? Does it also mean “swarming?”

comment Is the 'revelation OF or FROM Jesus Christ'? (Rev 1:1)
We stop short of application here, particularly applying it to later (anachronistic) religious theology not intended by the original author of the text. I've removed the latter portion involving application from this answer, it doesn't belong here. Be sure to read our site distinctives: meta.hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/a/803

comment Is God's will in Romans 12:2 talking about the future sequence of historic events or the pattern of priorities for the audience's lives?
@WoundedEgo I was confused about who wrote the question. The edit history shows the original wording of the question and I commented on my edit above. Not sure what you mean by your initial question otherwise

@ThaddeusB aha. That makes more sense. I'm on mobile so it is slightly confusing to see who OP is, my bad. I have no idea what WoundedEgo was asking then

@WoundedEgo by using 'our' you included yourself and possibly readers of the question in the audience of this letter, but it was written a specific community in a specific city in the first century. It's application to modern religious followers' lives is off topic here.

I made an edit to focus this on the original audience rather than its application to Christians today (the latter is off topic here).

comment Does Revelation 22:5 contradict 1 Corinthians 15:28?
these are two completely different texts by different authors. Why do they need to agree on the first place?

Even so, I won't unilaterally close this if the community disagrees.

@Thaddeus it is possible to draw a conclusion about the gospel author's intent and belief when writing. It is not possible To verify the historicity of the accounts. Dick's answer is good because it focuses on the former, while this questions asks for speculation on the latter. Evidence that it is focused on the historical event itself and not a specific text is the fact that all parallel accounts are given. Each gospel author may have had his own intent behind recording this account. Instead of asking about a specific text, the OP is asking about the event itself.
