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 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).

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-").

@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).

comment Can 1 Cor. 1:10-13 be interpreted as a Commandment against 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 Can 1 Cor. 1:10-13 be interpreted as a Commandment against 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]?).
