comment Job 38, was God being sarcastic?
+1, but given Job 2:3, I don't think it'd be inaccurate to say God afflicted Job, but I also don't think that gives Job any right to be aggrieved: the creator may do as He pleases and Job is not his judge regardless.

comment What is the significance of '7 generations' in Luke’s account of Jesus's genealogy?
The main contention is the word 'he', not the word 'fictitious', as Niobius's answer indicates. The NET translators notes have a useful summary of the difficulties with manuscript evidence here.

comment What is Yahweh's gender?
@curiousdannii I was just reading this answer (and upvoting it), but thinking exactly the same thing you commented. Perhaps your thoughts are worth expanding into an answer? You'd certainly also get my upvote.

comment What was Er's sin?
@Frank yes, he behaves 'to type' (not that all firstborns do, but there is a deliberate pattern I think, perhaps even extending to Adam and Meshiach but that may be stretching it :)

comment What was Er's sin?
@Frank I think Amichai's point is there is a pattern of firstborn's displeasing the Lord, ordained by the Lord. In that sense the word 'because' makes perfect sense (at least to me).

comment Is it possible to be unbiased when interpreting Scripture?
Is it really a case of us 'setting aside our bias' or is it a case of God opening blind eyes? It's an old question I know :)

comment Contextually, which English translation/ Greek text seems more probable in Rev. 5:10?
@Richard I've converted your answer to a comment on Swasheck's answer because that's my best guess about what you intended, forgive me if I've got that wrong. The other possibility that occurred to me is that you are really asking a different (albeit related) question, is that the case?

comment How is Adam “son of God” in Luke 3:38?
Do you mean it 'includes' the broader sense? The biological concept is there too (even evident in the quoted genealogy), isn't it?
