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).

Hey Bruce, glad to see your answer! :) Would you mind checking out What would be the best way to present ancient Jewish sources? We've clarified what we're looking for in Jewish citations a little more, as this will help all participants. Thanks!

comment What was the 'testimony' that Aaron's rod was brought before?
@Hello I'm also confused about some of your tagging choices. The main thing is that it should be tagged with the text the question comes from (numbers), so I've edited to include that and remove some that make no sense in relation to this question. Be sure to read the tag wikis to ensure you're using them correctly.

comment Understanding the verse John 16:12-13 “..he will speak only what he hears,..”
This question has been migrated to Christianity since you are specifically looking for a Christian perspective and appear to wish to read a later religious perspective (the Trinity) back into the text rather than starting solely from the text in its original context.

comment Are there differences in how the Spirit empowers people?
Just about everything doesn't follow from the preceding section. For instance, how is the Greek word's meaning relevant unless you are making a point using the Septuagint (which you do not appear to be doing)?

This makes no sense. Keep in mind that part of showing work is clearly connecting the dots beginning from the text. Much of your conclusion is non sequitur.

comment What does the oil in the ten virgins parable represent?
Well said, rhetorician. My point is that this question appears it may be asking for application: "our life... we are to pay... our life..." etc. The OP should note we stop short of this and focus solely on the text in its original context. We are not an exclusively Christian site, so such prescriptions should not be imposed on readers.

Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about. The chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts. Also please note that this is not a Christian site, we focus on the text in its original context.

comment Is there a difference between “punishment” and “discipline”?
@Andrew We're a little different from other sites. You'll need to justify quoting from both Hebrew Bible and NT texts and relating them like this (they are written in different languages and time periods), this is likely too broad for asking here as is. You seem to be starting from a theological idea and then asking us to find biblical support for it - which doesn't work here. You must start from a text and attempt to minimize your presuppositions when asking ideally. This question seems better for Christianity.
