comment Isaiah 46:10 and the implications of verse 11: Do any modern theologians dare pay attention to verse 11?
also I suspect this will be closed in its present form: "are there any modern scholars..." doesn't lend itself to the format here.

Please can you join the dots - how specifically are you suggesting verse 11 ought to be interpreted as fulfillment of Deuteronomy 28?

comment What is the meaning of “encircled” in Jeremiah 31:22?
@Jon I read this carefully in response to a flag, and I think it does address the question directly in the last two sentences?

comment Jesus as Adam in the Gospels?
This is not a good fit for the site as its basically a 'list' or 'shopping' question, but an exception has been proposed on meta. Please weigh in there but done hold off voting to close/reopen here in the meantime.

comment Why did Jesus did not utter the whole phrase “ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ὤν” in John 8:58?
I'm closing this as 'opinion-based' because it lends itself to such answers, as the critique in the first paragraph of the upvoted answer indicates.

@user4275 actually neither site is Christian but this site is not even about Christianity, it's explicitly about the 'biblical' texts.

comment Why did David and Jonathan need the arrow signal?
③ I'm not familiar with your hermeneutic, but that's precisely why I want to encourage you to help us by showing us more of your thinking: I'd be delighted if you contribute more so your interesting conclusions can be better appreciated and understood.

Thanks for responding Habakook. A few points if I may: ① Answers here should stand on their own, so if your reasoning is similar to that in another answer, you need to include it in your answer too (please edit it in. ② I am not 'questioning findings'. This meta post is very useful reading because it'll help you understand the metrics by which we do judge answers (hint: by how clearly understandable the working is, not by whether we agree with the conclusions).

Can you expand your answer to explain in more depth your reasoning? We need to be able to understand why you reach a conclusion, not just that you do!
