comment What historical reasons resulted in Revelation being included in most Christian canons?
Did you do all of this work just to answer this question or was it a prior research project?

comment Why is Luke 24:44 rendered “ψαλμοῖς” instead of “Αγιογραφία”?
I wonder if it has something to do with how folks would occasionally refer to a corpus by the name of the first / biggest / most important book? I think we see that elsewhere in the Gospels when citing minor prophets

comment What is the difference between “eretz” and “adamah” in Gen 2:6?
@Davïd 'eretz' is the word in question in all 3 places there. "Dry ground" does appear, but it is named "eretz". 'adamah' does not appear (so far as I can see.)

@Davïd This one's different, as it explores the difference in usage between two different Hebrew words.

comment “Overcome” vs “comprehend” in John 1:5
@Davïd When I alluded to a scholarly cop-out, what I meant was that as we're trying to narrow down the choices, once we get to the point of only having two remaining, some scholars prefer to blame authorial intent rather than admitting, "I don't yet know which is correct." I don't mean that it's "a lazy first port-of-call" as you put it. Regarding your claims about σκοτος, do you have any support for your idea that it signifies a "gloom that extinguishes light", or is this something you heard in a sermon (or elsewhere)?

comment What are the translations of the Greek word “monogenes” in Ancient Versions?Is it “only” or “only-begotten”?
Are you looking for an answer which attempts to translate each foreign translation (e.g. Coptic) into English? I'm assuming yes. Note that this will increase the translation error by a factor of 2. I would suggest either looking at the Greek and corresponding Hebrew (to LXX) or commentary on the Coptic etc. (if you can find it) instead.

comment What was the relationship in ages between Jesus and his disciples?
Jesus said He was around before Abraham was born, so if we take Him at His word that would make Him much older than them.

comment “Overcome” vs “comprehend” in John 1:5
@Susan Glad it helped. RE: the ESV, some see this section as an introduction to the whole book, so they could argue that the broader context allows for "overcome", but I would argue that "misunderstanding Jesus" is such a major theme in the book that the scale still weighs heavily in favor of "comprehend" even in the broader context.
