comment What happened to the 500 witnesses in 1 Corinthians 15?
These are good points and you already get +1 from me, but I wonder if you'd be willing to expand a bit to make it stand alone as an answer to "What happened to the 500 witnesses in 1 Corinthians 15"?

comment What does Jesus mean by generation when talking about the end times?
Hi konwayk, many thanks for letting me know: you are right about chat it isn't really intended for serious analysis. If you are happy for me to do so, I'd like to ask Sarah to review your post and suggest an edit if any is needed as she is far more familiar with the subject matter than I?

comment New American Standard Bible vs English Standard Version: Which one's more faithful to the original text?
@Caleb even now I don't think the question is objective or constructive: they are both good accurate translations and neither is perfect: everything else is a matter of opinion isn't it? OTOH if you and Jon want it open I shall not complain, but in that case we should probably clean up the comments :)
