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 baptism practiced by first-century Jews?
These are two separate questions. Also, it needs to be related to a text. I've edited this accordingly and am posting the second part as a new question.

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
@FrankLuke if it's a complete answer now, go for it. You can always add extra frosting later. If you feel it is incomplete but it's still substantial, post it with a disclaimer that you intend to finish it soon.

comment What is hermeneutics?
because we already have a question that contrasts exegesis and hermeneutics, I've edited out that portion of this question to prevent it being closed as a duplicate.

comment What is the meaning of “Sorceress” in Exodus 22:18?
What does the definition of magic/sorcery from a European play written in the 16th century CE have to do with a Near Eastern concept from the 6th century BCE?

comment Isaiah 46:10 and the implications of verse 11: Do any modern theologians dare pay attention to verse 11?
This seems to be a question beginning from an idea rather than from the text. Why not just ask what the verse meant in its original context? The very notions of (Western) determinism and Calvinism are quite anachronistic when read back into this text.

Hello, I know that you wrote this for another site and that this was migrated, but here at BH.SE we have a requirement for showing your work, which in this case would mean citing sources to back up many of your claims. Could you please edit to include sources/references for your assertions? Thanks!

comment How did Paul “see that someone had faith” in Acts 14?
We don't allow questions that are 'searching for a text', so I made a slight edit to focus this question on the specific text being asked about.
