comment John 21:15: “do you love me more than…?”
("Theologians and separatists" are terms from my developing translation. I'm trying to give a reading that is more easily apprehensible to the non-church-goer. But the above is arranged to be closer to the Greek for comparison clarity.)

comment What is the head covering referring to in 1 Corinthians 11:4-6?
Robertson considers κατὰ to be ablative, like "the herd bolted down the cliff" in Mk 5:13 (they didn't bolt "against" the cliff).

comment What is “the law of liberty” in James 2:12?
This answer might be strengthened if it connected to the "compassion" in v13 and "love the one near you" in v8.

comment What is “the law of liberty” in James 2:12?
James uses the same phrase in 1:25 "ὁ δὲ παρακύψας εἰς νόμον τέλειον τὸν τῆς ἐλευθερίας καὶ παραμείνας,...", NASB: "But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it".

comment What is Paul “giving his body over” to in 1 Corinthians 13:3?
I'm developing my own software as I make my own initial rough translation of the NT. I just added more complex searching like the above a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it's not yet ready to share, but I hope to make it available in the future. (Since it's a side project, it might be six months before I even have a private beta.) But feel free to ask more such questions and I'll try to pitch in.

All 9 of those indicatives are future tense, by the way. 3 active, 3 middle, 3 passive.

comment What is Paul “giving his body over” to in 1 Corinthians 13:3?
There are 9 occurrences of ἵνα followed immediately by an indicative in the SBLGNT: Ac 21:24, 1Co 13:3, Re 3:9, Re 6:11, Re 8:3, Re 9:5, Re 13:12, Re 14:13, and Re 22:14. I didn't find any future subjunctives.

comment The usage of the word “curse” in Gal 3:13
"Curse" is not a synonym, or even a synechdoche, for "sin", if that's what you're asking. In the Deut passage, the "sin" is to "not obey...or...do", and the "curses" (defeat, disease, drought, death) are an effect of that, not the sin itself.

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.
