How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

comment To Interpret Koine Greek, which contemporary writers can be used for comparison?
My issue with this question is that it is a list question/general reference. This question is also very broad.

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).

comment Did Jesus teach people to literally pluck their eye out and cut their hand off?
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. I've made some edits to focus this somewhat, but this answer could still benefit from some additional sources discussing how the original hearers would have understood it. Keep in mind that we stop short of applying the text to modern religious groups.

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.

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]?).
