comment Who is the prophetess in Isaiah 8:3?
@Stephen though you'd have to know Hebrew idiom to know whether it would be impersonal or not. Perhaps it is a question of emphasis: by using this title Isaiah is emphasising her role rather than her relationship to himself, for narrative effect?

comment Why does Matthew double people?
Hi justin, interesting point but can you elaborate on why Matthew would need to be more specific writing to Jews? Also, what does 'b/c' mean?

comment Who was Moses supposed to say sent him, “Ehieh” or “Yahweh”
@Ron, Fraser, you are right, this isn't the best place to discuss JEDP—either the site chat room or a specific question on the topic would be much better! Fraser I do hope you register and continue to contribute, we value your input on the site.

comment Is Malachi a pseudonym?
I think it makes a difference if the original reader would have known either way: when you write 'Dear Diary' today it is understood that 'Diary' isn't the name of a person, but it isn't a pseudonym either at least not in the sense I understand the word (which could be completely wrong of course). Incidentally I've often wondered the same thing about Theophilus.
