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 What does μονογενὴς Θεὸς means in John 1:18?
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 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.
