comment What did Jesus mean when he called the Pharisees “A brood of vipers”?
@david agreed. I had a prof who liked to emphasize that it could've been almost any parent other than Abraham and been a mortal insult, akin to Jesus calling them "snake bastards".

comment Romans 8:28 translation
Does every verb needs a visible subject? "Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν ἐκείναις ταῖς ἡμέραις..." ~= "and it happened in those days..." The "it" is implied.

comment What does Mark's account of the upper room reveal about Judas' part in the new covenant?
a) Jesus told them about the covenant after they drank it, and b) even if he had not, there are plenty of covenants entered and then broken.

comment When a new translation of the Bible is created
For a detailed discussion of this, I recommend A History of New Testament Lexicography by John A. L. Lee. It specifically explores how translators have relied heavily on lexicons, which in turn rely heavily on earlier translations and other lexicons.
