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).

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. While you will undoubtedly hear Christian perspectives, we don't have any definition of 'orthodoxy' and welcome all perspectives here. If you would like an interpretation from a specific Christian perspective, you might try Christianity.SE.

comment Why is the “give to Caesar what is Caesar's” answer so great?
I was with you right up until your Western post-Enlightenment ideal that you injected into a first century Near-Eastern text.

comment Prominence of Judah and Joseph in Tribal Allotments
@DickHarfield you got a +1 from me. The OP should not bias towards those who only accept biblical inerrancy or who do not want historical accounts outside of the Biblical texts themselves. This site is the ideal setting for these kinds of answers.

comment Why did God allow satan to take lives just to prove that Job is loyal?
@ScottS in this case it's awesome that this question attracted a pearl, but usually that's not the case (as evidenced by the other two answers). Check out this SE blog post.

OUTSTANDING! I am awarding this with a bounty (I have to wait 24 hours before the system lets me). I hope you don't mind my nitpicky edits. Your analysis of the Greek is impeccable. My only critique would be that you pulled in James to make a theological point without in any way showing work for the connection (I can follow citing other works of Paul). I'm of the mindset that Paul and James are not in agreement. However, with the rest of the answer being superb, it didn't stop me from giving a +1 and awarding a bounty for your considerable effort. Great job and thank you!

comment Why did God allow satan to take lives just to prove that Job is loyal?
This is a philosophical question, not really a textual one. The question fundamentally boils down to "Why did God..." which is largely opinion-based and not answerable from the text in many cases.
