comment What are “works of the law”?
This is a very important question in light of the "New Perspectives on Paul". Most conservative scholars would say it means "doing the things commanded by the Law" while N. T. Wright and company would say it refers specifically to circumcision, sabbath, and dietary rules. Others claim that it refers to works of any kind (i.e. not specific to the Law), though this is hard to defend exegetically.

comment Why doesn't Jesus give away all his money?
@fredsbend I don't think the "idolatry" answer is exegetically sound. Idolatry is never once mentioned or even alluded to. Your answer makes it sound like there is nothing wrong with being wealthy, whereas I see the text as saying the exact opposite.

comment Is Jesus Christ the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
The answer will need to address the text criticism issue in the Matthew passage.

comment What is the Godhead?
That is a loose translation of the Greek word for "Divinity". This translation was obviously theologically motivated.

comment Which of Paul's letters were written to strangers?
...and now that I think about it, Philemon also addressed a congregation (by extension) didn't it? Did Titus as well?

comment Which of Paul's letters were written to strangers?
Thanks, this is good. (+1). I would like you to comment on the remaining four as well if you could. Did he personally know Philemon and Titus? I know he knew Timothy well, but are there any clues in 1-2 Tim that shed light on his familiarity with Ephesus?

comment What did Paul mean when he said, “ We are seated in the heavenly realms”?
This is good. The only thing I'm not totally sure of is the statement that believers are no longer united to the first Adam... but I realize that's a very controversial objection.

comment What did Paul mean when he said, “ We are seated in the heavenly realms”?
If you look at the Greek, it is not so much that we were seated, as much as it is that Christ was seated, and we were "co-seated in Him", which brings in the very controversial topic of union with Christ, what that means, and how it works.

comment Jesus as Adam in the Gospels?
Kynes in his Dissertation, a Christology of Solidarity discusses something very similar.
