comment To whom does the Psalmist refer to in Psalm 2:6 as “the installed King of Zion”?
Great answer. +1. I was a little surprised by your statement that God did not appoint Saul to be king though... Was that a typo? I thought God appointed Saul to be king at the (foolish) request of the Israelites? If memory serves, he was anointed with oil, the Spirit came upon him, he had prophet and priest supporting him, etc.

comment What is the significance of both the priest and the Levite in the Good Samaritan parable?
Great question. +1. Whatever the significance, what we can be sure of is that Jesus' choice of characters here would have been outrageously offensive to His Jewish audience!

comment 2 Cor 5:20: “be reconciled to God” translation
@Susan Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking of translations from the Greek in those two cases. I'll update with more biblical examples when I get time.

comment Could Deut. 30:11-14 be a forward-looking prophecy?
Ok, DV removed. I'd still like to see the Hebrew with an explanation of why you say it is in the "imperative tense". I'd also love it if you could cite a source in support of your claim that it is sometimes argued that it should be read as future-oriented. (I would be interested in following up with that source.)

comment Could Deut. 30:11-14 be a forward-looking prophecy?
That sounds like the start of an excellent answer. Can you edit your post to explain that line of argument more clearly? (I wasn't even aware it was in the "imperative tense" in the Hebrew.)

comment Why did 400,000 men of the Tribes of Israel assemble over one rape in Judges 19:20-30 and Judges 20?
Great answer. +1. The only thing I might add (or emphasize more) here is that this Israeli city had become just like Sodom, which stood as an example to all Israel of ultimate depravity deserving ultimate judgment. This was not only a cause of great outrage, but also was a cause for great fear!

I edited the question to emphasize the contextual clues and make Paul's use if it more secondary.

Interesting. Thanks. Can you comment on the other views?

comment Was the Prodigal Son truly repentant?
@Wikis Understood. I only mention it because one of the alleged evidences appeared to be that the father seemed to be correcting the son by cutting him off. I wanted to show that this is also unlikely, and thus, not a good support for the theory.

comment Who was “speaking in David”?
:-) Thanks Scott. +1. FWIW "God as Spirit" sounds modalistic to my ears. Could you clarify your uses of "God" throughout the post so I can tell where you mean the Person of the Father (a "He") and where you mean the Godhead (not a " He")?
