comment Why does Jesus refer to himself as the “Son of Man” in Mark 2:10?
It's hard to answer "why". I even debated on if this is on topic... it is... but it's so close to doctrine that I don't know how you could answer it w/o injecting doctrine.

Very well, so then, you're just looking for ` לִפְנֵי פִּי הַחִירֹת`

Could you explain the concern about the translation? I mean, I would just use Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi-hahiroth

comment What does “born again” from John 3:3 mean?
The ritual of baptism symbolizes life (above), death (submerged), and rebirth (above). Maybe there's a link.

I may be off by 600 years or so. Maybe The Roman link isn't the best. But my point is that the text suggests something outside of the Semitic cultures.

comment Is Jesus letter to king of Edessa authentic
Asking why the Gospel of Thomas is not in the canon would be off topic (I believe). This is Biblical Hermeneutics afters all. Again, I didn't down vote and I'm not a Mod. I am only making a suggestion for you. I wish the down voters would explain why they down vote.

comment Eat my flesh and drink my blood
I think it's important to know that Matthew (AD 40'S) was before John (AD 60'S). Therefore textual critics state that John borrows information from Matthew. Often times, John appears "drive home" the points from Matthew by making them appear more glamorous. I'm not saying that is intentional, I'm just speaking from my understanding of textual criticism.

comment Is Jesus letter to king of Edessa authentic
I didn't down vote you question, however I would like to point out reasons that it may have been down voted (I really wish the down voters would do this). Your question is asking about the authenticity of a document and why a specific document has not been canonized. This site is about question and answers regarding translation of biblical texts and the related fields. Determining what is true and the reason(s) to not reopen canonized text would be out of scope. Lastly, there are known extra biblical text which help understand the life of Jesus. However, read with caution.

comment Yule Tree in Jeremiah 10:1-4?
It may not have been seen in Semitic cultures, but the practice would have been seen from the Romans. The passage warns against "Learn not the way of the nations", obviously we're not talking about just Semitic cultures here.
