comment How can I identify puns in the Hebrew Bible?
Hi Bob, do you know someone called 'hudson roper'? He posted a question directed at you about the progress of your dictionary (I assume because he doesn't have the rep to comment here): "how is this going Bob? hopefully well. hudson"

Hi Remiel, there was a suggested edit from an anonymous user: was that you? Either way, it would be great if you could edit your thoughts into a more complete answer :)

comment Who led the people out of Israel in Jude 5?
@DanO'Day I encourage you to accept the best answer regardless of who answers—most visitors don't know about the community aspect of the site and we are really here to benefit them (we are currently getting 700+ visitors daily, most directly from Google!). Of course I agree this is the best answer (thanks swasheck) but I don't want anyone to get the impression from your comment that you'd choose it even if it weren't :)

comment Given the differences between Hebrew and Aramaic, how are the Aramaic sections identified?
This related question: How different is Biblical Hebrew from modern Hebrew? covers some of the same ground.

comment What's the difference between “sensus plenior” and “inspired sensus plenior”?
Well I don't particularly mind if you want it left just the way it is :) tbh I was wondering if it was deliberate irony given the question ;)

comment Is there a link between the Jewish expectation of a literal Messianic kingdom and the command to witness to the ends of the earth in Acts 1?
Thanks for the edits Joseph, I've changed my vote. Lucky I checked back though because otherwise I wouldn't have known you done it. As a courtesy please reply to comments from moderators (I promise not to spam you). This very short paragraph from the FAQ tells you how using the '@' symbol so we get messages.

Also, an aside, your diagram is great: would you be willing to add it in the body of the answer?

I like a 'big picture' answer, but I don't like "Please suffer me to render my "opinion" on the matter" as it seems to refer to a debate on another answer and would merely serve to confuse most visitors. Please consider editing it and I will consider changing my downvote to an upvote.

comment Is Satan one of the “sons of God”?
+1 I like your reasoning which broadly makes a lot of sense to me. It isn't as well formatted and clear as some of your other efforts though: if you have a few minutes would you be willing to break it up a little? Do pop into the site chat room, 'The Library', if you'd like me to show you what I mean.
