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.

comment Who began his reign first: Jehoram of Israel, or Jehoram of Judah?
@Niobius In short, it is usually just by constructing a timeline and deducing this from the dates provided. There are sometimes extra-Biblical sources that can corroborate what the text says, but the Hebrew Scriptures are the primary source for the history of the Jewish kings. I would recommend Ussher's Annals of the World for details on the dates. It's an excellent work... probably the most reliable history available for the pre-Christ era.

comment What were the Corinthians doing when they “baptized on behalf of the dead”?
@JonEricson Perhaps because that was not his focus in this passage. He may have addressed it previously in one of his (non-canonical) letters or visits, etc. Since Paul was talking to the Corinthians and not to us, it stands to reason that (if I am right,) the Corinthians would not have missed his sarcasm. It would not be the first time we see Paul alluding to an interaction we are not privy to.
