comment How many daughters did Lot have, two or four?
This doesn't show its work, which is a requirement on this site. Don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it. This will require citing sources that discuss ancient betrothal practices to support your claims. Also, comparing Mary and Joseph (1st century CE) to Lot (if historical, thousands of years earlier) doesn't make sense. Please further connect the dots for this example.

Please 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. "Answers should show sensitivity to other users of the site. This may include an extra explanation when later texts are applied to earlier texts (e.g. ones that read Jesus into the Hebrew Bible)." (meta post) In this case it is best simply to ask what this means. Answers are free to elaborate

comment What arguments exist that would refute the theory concerning Aramaic primacy of the New Testament?
Note that there is another question devoted more to what you addressed here (linked in the question itself): What portions of the New Testament are purported to have originally been written in Aramaic?.

comment After He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever (Hebrews 10:12)
As also pointed out by fdb, using texts by other NT authors to deduce the meaning of this text is methodologically dubious. You can do it here, but you'll need to show work for doing so and support the connections. This is not a religious website - we don't take it as a given that these texts are 'Scripture' nor that they are harmonious. You may, but state this as a presupposition (i.e. define your hermeneutic biases and approach).

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. You mention that 'virtually everyone has recognized [this] since antiquity.' Like who? Please cite sources for such assertions.

comment Judgement with or without the Law
This question is all over the place. What is the specific text being asked about? What is the specific question? I've edited the question to help myself (and others) by making it clearer what is part of your question vs. textual quotes but this more clearly shows the underlying confusion about what text you're actually asking about.

comment Why did Elisabeth remain in seclusion in Luke 1:24?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. I removed the last sentence because it was a question rather than an answer. If you have another question, please ask it by clicking the Ask Question button. I also made a slight formatting improvement (it seemed your original intent, if not feel free to edit).

Also, saying 'liberal' is a pet peeve of mine. It's meaningless -- especially in this context ;)

comment The Statue of Daniel 2 Breaking?
@BenjaminHoogterp there is no requirement to edit, you've requested specific hermeneutics and that's fine. Just be careful not to solely ask for Christian perspectives in questions. In this case the hermeneutic somewhat goes hand in hand with a Christian perspective, but there is nothing preventing an answer from offering another perspective that discounts the NT witness, so this is fine (had you said, "I only want Christian perspectives," that would be a different story).

comment Why “Inn” for “Kataluma” in Luke 2:7
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 appreciate you sharing your personal experience, but as written it isn't verifiable in any way. We just have to take your word for it. We don't know who you are, what archaeological scholar gave the lecture, etc. Could you please elaborate?

comment The Statue of Daniel 2 Breaking?
@BenjaminHoogterp I would encourage not trying to force any model onto the text, including making the New Testament applicable to it. That will open the question up to more answers and perspectives. Keep in mind this is not an exclusively Christian site.

This is very broad, it may be a different reason in each letter. But I'll let others weigh in.
