comment Can we date Mark without first committing to an interpretation of the Olivet Discourse?
@JonEricson: It is not a question of eyewitnesses--- none of the tales of Jesus can be eyewitness accounts, because they describe supernatural events, and supernatural events are impossible. That's it. The life expectancy is not an issue, if you made it to 20, you have a good chance, 80% or so, of making it to 60, and from there a 50/50 chace of getting to 70, then 80 (this is an estimate).

comment Who did Cain marry?
This is not Hermeneutics, it is theology. The only answer to "who did Cain marry?" is "it does not say, probably an unnamed sister".

I used a "helpmate complementing him" which I think is closest.

comment What does “Jealous” mean in Exodus 34:14?
Are Ghayoor and Kana cognates? It might be Gana, Ganar, Ghayoor, but if the G is a guttaral, like "ayin" I have a hard time imagining the transformation. Is there a proto-semitic reconstruction?

comment Is there a modern English translation of the Bible that uses the second-person plural pronoun?
@GoneQuiet: It will bother you, I'll make up a passage: The Amorites have risen, and Israel's daughters are taken captive, their tears upon their hem. Their tears like water down a stream. Their eyes redden, and they call to God: God, awaken from your slumber and release us from captivity. Our hopes have faded. And God answered them, saying "I have heard y'all, and I shall release yous's chains".
