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 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.

comment What is “apocalyptic” literature?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. One distinctive is that we expect answers to show their work, which is a requirement on this site. We don't just want you to tell us what you know, but also tell us how you know it. Could you share who taught you that and identify a verifiable source?

comment What is the significance of the definite article in 1 Cor 14:2?
By your own admission, this doesn't fully answer the question. Please expand this to help the OP determine the purpose of the article using 'syntactics, context, and perhaps even theology' in 1 Corinthians 14:2. Otherwise, it will be converted into a comment.

comment How should 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 be interpreted?
NOTICE: Comments Removed. Comments exist so that users can talk about questions and answers without posting new answers that do not actually answer their parent questions. Comments are often used to ask for clarification on, suggest corrections to, and provide meta-information about posts. They should not be used to express disagreement with claims in a post and to debate it. For discussion, use the chat room.

comment Frequency of each binyan in the OT?
As @Davïd has pointed out, this is technically off topic topic since it is not focused on understanding a specific text. However, I'm glad to see you got a good answer (and it will remain for others to find) :)
