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 Was the Passover meal to be boiled according to Deuteronomy 16:5-7?
@Susan I upgraded to Logos v6 immediately because they've had linguists semantically tag the Bible and have developed new features to visualize this data, which is quite impressive. Up until now we've had good morphological and syntactical tags (with semi-semantic-tagging keyed to Wallace, incorrectly labeled as 'exegetical syntax'), but v6 has introduced actual semantic tagging. Of course this makes the tools more subjective (often following Wallace in the NT), but in most cases there is little ambiguity.

@Susan that is a sense graph, not a standard word study one tied to a translation. It's a new feature in Logos v6. I can also tie it to a specific translation, but this is meant to be a composite/aggregate (it groups specific words from many translations into semantic domains as well). Normally I wouldn't rely solely on that, but since I actually went through every instance and created my own chart (and showed this chart in my answer), I feel confident in its results.

@Sarah you seem to be trying to reconcile the presence of such conflicting instructions with a theological idea about 'Scripture' and God, perhaps a belief in biblical inerrancy (which you're welcome to do). Whether or not the contradiction is of any substance is an issue for practicing faith communities in specific contexts to decide. My point here is merely to present the facts, devoid of such theological analysis (sticking solely to the text), and it appears that at least one Rabbi/scribe saw a need to harmonize these passages (for whatever reason).

@FMS here we can certainly answer that first question, but the second would be best for Christianity

I've narrowed this down to focus it on one specific text and its application to the broader Pauline corpus. We don't have a clear definition of what constitutes 'the Bible', and that would be much too broad since παρουσία is a Greek term and 'the Bible' is written in at least two additional languages. I've also removed the secondary question which begins from a theological concept rather than from the text. You should be able to get a good understanding from the question as it is currently worded.

focused on a specific text, narrowed question since 'Bible' is not defined nor agreed upon, and is too broad

In addition to not addressing the Greek text whatsoever (rather than treating the Syriac as an early translation that provides supplemental evidence for an argument from the Greek text), I also downvoted for what I believe to be erroneous information (commonly espoused by Aramaic primacists) in your dating of the Peshitta (had you said 'by the fifth century' rather than 'before the fourth century', it would be accurate).

comment Meaning of στοιχεῖον (stoicheion)
This is a question about a Greek phrase. It is expected that answers will deal with the Greek language and cite reliable lexical and other relevant resources.

Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. We value answers that show their work, which is a requirement on this site. I'm struggling to understand what a twentieth century organization that helps alcoholics has to do with understanding a first century text.

comment Does the miracle of the Woman with an Issue of Blood indicate that healing power flows spontaneously from Jesus?
Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. As David pointed out, it is difficult to discern in here what the question is. This seems more like a discussion forum post asking for feedback/thoughts/comments rather than a clear question asking for an answer. We are a Q&A site, not a forum. Can you focus this more and make it clear what you are asking and which specific text you are asking about?
