comment Frequency of each binyan in the OT?
@Davïd my reading of the meta discussion about this sort of question is that it is on-topic if it's not a language question that could be asked independent of the texts.

comment Where was Jesus when he received word of Lazarus' illness?
@Dick, I really appreciate the reference (although having read it through, I found it - to put it mildly - unconvincing, but that isn't really important). It'd be great to link to that pdf in the body of your answer too if you are willing to edit it in, I suspect these comments will eventually get deleted.

comment Where was Jesus when he received word of Lazarus' illness?
Interesting answer: I wonder why you connect the Lazarus of the parable with the brother of Mary and Martha though; that seems quite a leap just based on the name (the resurrections aren't comparable as one is related to the general resurrection at the end of time, and the other is in the vein of the miracles of the prophets) - is there any other reason to make the connection? Your mention that "...the gods could not revive someone who had been dead for more than three days..." is fascinating, do you happen to have a reference for that?

revised What did 'adoption' mean to the Romans?
I think this question needed significant adaption to focus on the specific history question and take it away from being a leading question.

restricted to one of the two questions - the answer to the other is just "the text doesn't say".

comment Herod The Fox: Luke 13-32
Re-reading this, I'm left wondering, are you assuming that whoever translated the spoken phrase from the Aramaic or Hebrew into Greek did so badly? Only the most deliberately literal translations would leave in a misleading idiom without translating the sense.
