comment What did Sarah mean by calling Abraham her “lord”?
Keep in mind that etymology and current meaning in context are orthogonal issues. Check out Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon.

comment Which Documentary Hypothesis sources does Jesus quote from?
Unfortunately this question is too subjective for this Q&A format.

comment What is the meaning of the repetition of “holy” in Isaiah 6:3?
"Judaism has a tendency to do things in three times (actually all Semitic cultures)." Please provide support for this statement - you've offered none.

comment Why didn't Sarah refuse to go to Abimelech?
Could you support this with sources rather then pure speculation? I.e. references about ancient Mesopotamian and Babylonian familial relations, etc. We call this 'showing your work' and it's a requirement here.

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
@curiousdannii note my edit, that comment was intended for kmote, not you. My apologies for the false ping. I've retained your comments since they are focused on factual issues.

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
@kmote please use comments to point out factual issues with the post, vague disagreements such as 'anti-conservative bias' are not constructive.

@DickHarfield I agree with those accusations as being unhelpful. I'd love to see you incorporate your citations of Ehrman and Mack into the post (comments are temporary).

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
Please cite actual scholars rather than saying 'a majority of scholars' (I can name several myself, but this is part of showing your work). It looks like you have some good data in comments, please integrate it into the answer.

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
Welcome to BH.SE, I made a slight edit to remove a portion of the question that is off topic here (searching for a text). We stick to specific texts and explaining them in their original historical, linguistic, and literary setting(s). This is an interesting question, glad to have you!

comment Was Elijah REALLY taken to Heaven?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. I'm not going to unilaterally close it (but I'd be in support of community close votes), but this assumes a lot theologically (that these texts are contiguous, that they are speaking about the same thing, that there is a need to resolve any perceived or actual contradiction between the two texts, etc.) and doesn't really start from a specific text.

comment What are the possible interpretations of 1 John 2:19?
Since 2012, we've since firmed up on questions needing to start solely from the text and not from ideas about the text. I've made a slight edit to maintain this focus. It's a good question, the edit doesn't change that.

comment Is “you” in plural or in singular in Gen. 3:3?
While I recognize that this is simple grammar, citing an elementary grammar would improve this answer. We've discussed the site's requirement for showing work before.

comment Why was Elijah so afraid of Jezebel that he fled immediately after performing a great miracle?
Please also keep in mind that this is not a Christian site. Be sure to check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible.

comment In Luke 18: Pharisee and Tax Collector
Could you elaborate any more? You haven't presented any historical evidence that would indicate Matthew is talking about a prayer in this format from Luke - it is purely speculative. Extrabiblical historical sources would greatly strengthen your argument.

comment Does Gen 1:1 refer to day 1 or the entire 6 days of creation?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. Be sure to fully include any information from external sources in your answer that is pertinent to answering the question. I've combined your other post with this one as this is a Q&A site, not a discussion forum.

comment In Luke 18: Pharisee and Tax Collector
Could you expand that citation so that others can find it? We like sources to be cited well. Also, this doesn't fully answer the question. It's more of a comment on it needing further explanation and research.

comment Meaning of Ezekiel 5:8
It wasn't a problem in the other formatting, I was just wondering if it was meant to be a quote. Thanks for clarifying.

comment Meaning of Ezekiel 5:8
Is that code-formatted section meant to be a blockquote? If so, please specify the source.

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. I've cleaned this up a bit to improve grammar, formatting, and to include the text.
