I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

Could you add some examples under Textual Evidence #1? Thanks in advance.

comment Did Mark intend to end his gospel at 16:8?
Matthew, you're clearly very intelligent and creative, and brought up a number of interesting points here. I'm just not sure the conclusions are reliable-- for a couple of reasons. First, this entire line of thought is nullified if the ending is indeed original, which is where the evidence seems to me to point. Second, a lot of these arguments rely on drawing lines between different passages based on a single shared word or phrase, and that method is highly suspect. It just doesn't work consistently. You have to prove that the author intended the link, and one word isn't enough to do so.

comment Background to the phrase “fall from heaven like lightning”?
@Davïd It could be. I was wondering if it was a common saying in His day, for instance, like we might say "another one bites the dust", and what the background on the saying was.

comment Who was Abram's mother?
Thanks for the answer. Can you expand on "daughter of Karnebo"? Would that make her a Canaanite? A Horite priestess? If you can address this I can accept the answer and vote it up. Thanks.

comment Who was Abram's mother?
@DickHarfield My point was simply that this question wouldn't make it very far on that site because they don't even believe Abram existed. The sources I've seen respected the historicity of Abram and suggested he was a Canaanite. I'm wondering if there's any evidence behind that assertion. Hope that helps...

comment Concealing & revealing in Proverbs 25:2
Interesting. So the king searching a matter out wouldn't have anything to do with getting to the bottom of legal disputes then.

You've got me curious now... which hermeneutics class are you in, if you don't mind me asking? If you don't want to say which school specifically, could you tell me whether it's undergrad or graduate, and what branch of the church it is associated with?
