comment Was Barnabas ever reconciled to Paul?
Never mind who voted it down, what matters is why it's been voted down. Use of formatting to make it clear what bits are quotes and what is your words helps a lot, as does putting a little effort into noticing that your quote had missing text halfway through a word: "impoThat"?

comment Who is being slandered in 2 Peter 10b-11?
My reasoning is that "angels... against [angels]" doesn't sit right: if that's what Peter meant, I think he would have said "...they do not tremble as they blaspheme the angels, whereas they, though greater in might and power, do not..."

Yes, though in more general terms. Detail about 'heavenly' hierarchies is light in scripture, but they do seem to exist. So there are spiritual 'offices' of authority both for evil and for good, wouldn't you agree?

@Mark I may revisit this again, but I've changed my mind about one my points here and removed it as a result of reading Jude. I actually changed the question too as the 'sub-question' was a duplicate of this (which I've had a go at answering instead).

@Mark coming from you I consider that high praise, thanks. I'll look at Jude and see if there is anything I feel I can add...

you might be interested in the update I've made to my answer (point 3 is new), and in particular the NET Bible note on verse 12 I've quoted. Not that it proves anything of course but it's useful I think.
