comment Isaiah 1:18 white washing the scarlet?
@BlessedGeek Its not that sins contain anything pure, they definitely do not. It's that even if their guilt looks as permanent as scarlet dye, it can be removed. The cleverness of the metaphor is that it uses something positive to allude to something very very negative, sins. This language is intended to re-kindle faith. Certainly it's better to be whole in the first place rather than have to go through the cycle of punishment and repentance. Of course, some of us seek punishment ;-) but that is not what the prophet is talking about in this verse.

comment How can the flight to Egypt in Matthew 2:15 be a fulfillment of Hosea 11:1?
@livingparadox I wouldn't call it weak reasoning in the context is the accepted hermeneutics of the time. In fact, its pretty strong for this type of claim.

@Mike I do my best to answer questions on this site based on my understanding of the intent of the author of the text, based on my knowledge of history, similar texts, and the languages of the period, whether or not I sympathise with the author of the text. My assumption is that no one posting a question on this site is looking for a response designed to support any particular theological position but is trying to understand the intent of the original author in his historical context.

comment What do the days of Obadyahu's youth concern us?
+1, but specifically why "since my youth"? Wouldn't "I am a worshipper of the LORD" be sufficient? What does the "youth" add here that warrants mention?
