comment What did Jesus mean by 'the gates of hell'?
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-").

comment What is it that Paul prays Ephesians will comprehend?
@Susan not necessarily. Any genitive referent would suffice, this is what the reader would have anticipated to find, but no referent is specified.

comment What is it that Paul prays Ephesians will comprehend?
PS in addition to my answer, I recommend reading more of Knox. I had a hard time summarizing his and Best's ideas (Best's commentary is not free, unfortunately). There is a lot of excellent material, particularly the introductory material to the epistle in each work.

comment Romans 8:28 translation
it's not odd at all for a singular verb to take a neuter plural noun as the subject (it happens all the time, cf. BDF § 133: "Perhaps no syntactical peculiarity of Greek is more striking to us than the use of the singular verb with a neuter plural subject"). And no, not all verbs need a visible subject, hence why some use 'God' as the subject which would be implied (or they are using the textual variant).

Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. After reading that, check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. This will hopefully make things clearer. We also have a help center which answers commonly asked questions about the site.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 1:10-13 refer to 'cults'?
There is no need for further edits. I've removed where the most recent edit goes a little too far to ask a historical question non-related to this text (i.e. not arising naturally from this text). Your questions about church history will have to be asked elsewhere - I recommend Christianity.

Sounds good, @Hello . I put a post notice on this to give you the opportunity to do just that. Once you've updated, go ahead and flag the post with a custom flag indicating that you've edited it with sources and I'll remove the notice. Thanks and I'm looking forward to reading more!

comment Does 1 Corinthians 1:10-13 refer to 'cults'?
@e.s.kohen but if you are beginning from a later understanding of 'Cult', you are not starting from the text - which could make this off topic. Be sure to remain focused on the text in its original context. The rest of your question would have to be asked elsewhere (i.e. how did the early Church understand the concept of 'Cult' [non-related to this specific passage]?).

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.

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).

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).
