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?

comment Was Elijah REALLY taken to Heaven?
Great question. Some factors to explore: (A) Does "ascended" have the idea of "returned" here? (B) Does "ει μαι" mean "if not" ("unless") here? (C) Does 2 Chronicles refer to the same "Elijah"? (D) Did 2 Chronicles 21 definitely take place after Elijah's death? (E) There is another NT passage that suggests Elijah was "transferred"; does the Hebrew actually mean that he "ascended" in the way Jesus did? ...anyway, I haven't studied this particular question in depth (yet), but these are some of the things I would look at before drawing conclusions.
