comment Did houses only have one room 2000 years ago?
Yes, it's from an earlier period (as David also mentions in his comment) - so my question is soliciting some sort of evidence as to whether the style was still basically "one room downstairs, further rooms upstairs" in the time of Jesus - I don't want to be told the answer, I want to be shown some evidence - even though I trust you, not everyone who stumbles on the question from Google will, it would be great to have a link at least.

If the picture linked in David's comment is typical, it appears that there is indeed one big room on the ground floor, which looks like it might be where work is done and light is needed by the whole household.

comment Why does Mark provide two feeding accounts?
"...Jews are in mind in the first feeding while Gentiles are in view in the second..." I think the geography of the narrative also supports this theory - Jesus has been criss-crossing the lake of Galilee and at the point of feeding the 4,000 he seems to be on the Gentile side.

comment Did Adam and Eve not have sex in the Garden of Eden?
@Vector of course, but curiousdannii and I were discussing the literal level, and that was the context I was commenting into!

comment Did Adam and Eve not have sex in the Garden of Eden?
$Vector most of the events in Gen 1-11 are implausible to some degree if taken as a literal historical narrative.That doesn't necessarily mean they aren't literally true in the historical sense, but it may mean that reading them like that we are mistaking the genre and therefore the message.

comment 1 Tim 2:12: What about a woman prophesying with authority over a man?
It might be helpful to quote the 1 Tim passage in full if that is where this question starts, but what would be most helpful for clarity's sake would be to re-phrase to make the question clearer - I'm not currently sure exactly what you are asking.

comment Where is the 'Arabia' that Paul went to?
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback which is very interesting. Do you think it's an important enough issue to incorporate into your answer in some way? I'm happy to try editing your map to show Damascus if you think that would help.

comment Where is the 'Arabia' that Paul went to?
Thanks. What I'm slightly confused about then is the phrase "...I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus..." - doesn't that imply that Damascus is not in Arabia? Or does Paul mean something like "...I went away into the heart of Arabia..."
