comment Was Abimelech's mother an Israelite?
My question at that point would be: how are the people of Shechem still Hivites and not Israelites in light of passages like Joshua 24:25?

comment How can we ensure a given “chiasm” was intentional by the author, and is not merely fanciful eisegesis?
Thank you very much Dr. McCoy. That article was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. As Monica mentioned, it would be very much appreciated if you could summarize (and link) the criteria from the article in your answer. Once you've done that, I'll accept it.

comment Gen 3:22 + Rev. 22:2 =?
@hannes If death is merely a returning of particles to the ground, that would persist eternally. There are other possibilities though (see here for example.)

comment What is the rock that dashes the feet of the fourth kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream in Daniel 2?
@Mike Whenever I'm interpreting a passage, I try to separate "what I know" from "what I suspect." In this case, I tried to stick to the former in the answer and commented on the latter in the comments. I could be persuaded on the latter, but I think any explanation would need to jive with the former.

comment What is the rock that dashes the feet of the fourth kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream in Daniel 2?
@Mike I'm not taking a futurist view. I am hesitant about jumping to conclusions because I don't think the passage in question warrants it. I was attempting an exegesis of the text you asked about. Anything further belongs on Christianity.SE (if my understanding of the site guidelines are correct.) || Regarding my comment, I'm not opposed to the idea that this has already been fulfilled, I'm just having trouble seeing how that view could be reconciled with the exegesis of the passage. It's not a bias, they just seem incompatible to me. But I could just be missing something.

comment What is the rock that dashes the feet of the fourth kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream in Daniel 2?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 I tend to think it is Christ as well, although I think it's yet to be fulfilled, since Pentecost was hardly a "sudden and complete obliteration of all the kingdoms which didn't leave a trace of any of them," and the church does not rule the earth in place of these kingdoms... it's more of a spiritual kingdom running in parallel to the kingdoms of this world.

comment What is the rock that dashes the feet of the fourth kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream in Daniel 2?
@Mike I'm not working from a commentary on this one... just making simple observations from the text. Daniel 2:44 interprets the unhewn stone that crushes the statue as a kingdom set up by God that puts an end to the other kingdoms. The basic exegesis is pretty cut and dry in this case. The theological conclusions differ widely, but I was trying to avoid that here.

@Mike Do you mean references to something other than the text? Or was it unclear what text I was referring to at each step?

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."
