comment What is being “judged” in 2 Corinthians 5:10?
This question asks about two different texts by two different authors written at different times and makes the assumption that they are speaking about the same event. The last question about how many times Jesus sits down to judge is 'searching for texts', which is strictly off topic here. You may want to consider asking on Christianity. If you wish to ask about either text here, that is fine, but it would need to be focused on a single text and not try to relate the two.

comment Could Jesus Christ hate something or someone?
This question is off topic for this site. This would be a better question for Christianity or for a local clergy person. Be sure to read about our site distinctives.

comment Is there a case to be made that Luke wrote the book of Hebrews?
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. Could you expand this more, citing specifically where in Tertullian's writings you got that quote, and present more evidence for your claims of 'internal considerations'? As it stands, this doesn't show its work, which is a requirement.

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).

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-").

Please don't "preach" at readers. Instead, describe your perspective without prescribing it. We're looking for lectures rather than sermons. Please keep in mind that not all of your readers here are Christians.

My issue with this question is that it is a list question/general reference. This question is also very broad.

@Susan not necessarily. Any genitive referent would suffice, this is what the reader would have anticipated to find, but no referent is specified.
