Hi Dan, these are interesting thought but the answer would really benefit from a bit more joining the dots if you have the time to review it?

comment Did the Holy Spirit leave Jesus when temptation was present in Luke 4?
This is a good answer, but you may wish to reword the first sentance slightly since I edited the question following a comment from the OP.

comment What does it mean in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14 when the text says, “Whoso readeth, let him understand”?
What do you mean by "redaction"? Something more than an 'editorial' comment by the author at the time of writing, or just that?

I've edited the question, but I'm not sure if I've understood the OPs intent or if you have. He may roll the change back or add further clarification.

comment How would Elisha plowing with 12 oxen have been understood at the time of writing?
When you say "I'm not looking for an allegorical answer" do you mean you don't want modern allegory read back into the passage or are you trying to exclude any argument that the 12 oxen would have been understood allegorically at the time?

comment What does it mean for someone to be another person's “portion”?
Dan this is the beginnings of an answer and I'm not going to convert it into a comment because that would be a waste (comments are temporal and generally pretty useless for anything approaching an answer). Please edit if and when you have the time, otherwise it is better as it is!

I don't know why this was downvoted, although obviously these questions can be very difficult to answer convincingly.
