comment What is the third Commandment referring to?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 That question was my inspiration for asking this here. The first option that I presented here was taken as a given in the question you linked until I posted my answer (which hasn't received much attention.) For this question, I'm more interested in the exegesis of "take His name" than the definition of "in vain."

comment What do the toes represent in the final kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream in Daniel 2?
FWIW, the stone "became" a great mountain; it doesn't say it "grows" into a mountain. The former allows for an instantaneous transformation, while the latter implies a gradual transformation.

comment Which four kingdoms are represented in the statue of Nebuchadnezzar's dream in Daniel Chapter 2?
If memory serves, the Word Biblical Commentary says the Iron is Greece, which was interesting to me. I had always been under the impression it was Rome. It might be worth considering both perspectives before drawing conclusions.

comment When is allegorization of scripture productive?
Some great stuff here, but how would you address Gal. 4, where Paul apparently reads historical narrative allegorically? Or 1 Cor. 10? Or Heb. 9? Or Heb. 7? (Etc.)

comment What is Paul referring to in 1 Timothy 4:14?
Thanks. Some good stuff here. I'd like a bit more explanation on all three parts to the question, though. Part 1: you say "yes" but don't give me any reason other than "stuff you've seen"... Part 2: are we looking at a specific gift (e.g. from 1 Cor. 12) or not?... Part 3: I need some explanation, not just a quote. (Why is this commentator more credible than the next 50?)

comment Has the meaning of “Love” changed enough to warrant substitutions in Bible translations?
@hannes The purpose of the saying is to draw attention to the true locus of meaning: the author -- not the text (and certainly not the reader.)

-1 This sounds very devotional and pastoral... I don't want to discourage you in any of your ideas, but I think you might be more at home on Christianity.SE with answers like this. Anyway, feel free to flag this comment as obsolete once you've read it.
