comment What does the vocabulary of 2 Peter indicate about its authorship?
Re your last paragraph, that certainly makes sense if it is backup up with evidence from works by known authors. Do you know of any studies that do similar comparison between the early and late works of someone (eg C S Lewis)?

comment What does the vocabulary of 2 Peter indicate about its authorship?
"Considering the brevity of the letter, this is markedly disproportionate" - I think we need to consider not only the number of unique words by length of text, but also by author - ie if Paul wrote twice as much you wouldn't expect the number of unique words to double but perhaps even to go down as he's basically going to be using his normal vocabulary again.

Thanks for pointing out the 7 - unlikely to be coincidence I think. I wonder if other 7s in the Bible are 2+1+4.

comment Why is the observation that “it was good” missing on the second day?
You are welcome :) The reason why I don't feel comfortable with any other division than 'day' is that the one unbroken pattern in the entire account is the day completion formula "and there was evening and there was morning the X day". To my way of thinking (constrained by this logic), the 'waters' (the 'arena' for the sea creatures) are already complete at the end of day 2. The action of gathering the waters together does not complete that creation, but begins the creation of the 'land' arena in preparation for the animals and ultimately humans on day 6.

comment Are the 70 sevens of Daniel 9:24 the fulfillment of Leviticus 26:18-33?
@Joseph thanks for putting the effort in :) my only remaining doubt is whether it's too broad with both questions in place - I wonder if it is better to focus on one or the other (or split the question into two). For me personally it is the second question that is more interesting.
