Grew up Mennonite; now Reformed Baptist. Figure that one out.

Having recently upgraded to an Android tablet, I mostly use YouVersion's Bible app. Before that, I primarily used e-Sword and NET Bible on a Fujitsu tablet PC. I've actually been fully electronic since 2002 or 2003, when I got a Pocket PC device. As I told a friend at the time, "I just got an eight-translation parallel Bible with Greek and Hebrew lexicons, and it only weighs 5 ounces!"

comment Are there scriptural standards by which a hermeneutic method can be measured?
Was he saying they "become like angels" in a general sense, or specifically in this regard - angels do not marry.

comment What is an anagogical interpretation and when should it be considered?
Wow, there sure isn't much out there on this... Google keeps suggesting other words like synagogue and analogue.

comment What is the 'cock's crow'?
As well, based on Matthew 26, Peter was in the courtyard of the High Priest. However, this might not have been within the temple complex. (It was somewhere that a servant girl was permitted, at least.) And in any case, the Old City of Jerusalem really wasn't very big.

Both were copied from net.bible.org. I do see another instance of 3372 on that page without the ת.

comment Is “kill” a valid translation for Exodus 20:13 (Thou shalt not kill)?
Along with that, it would be difficult to reason that one of God's foundational rules was "do not kill" in a general sense, when numerous other passages discuss doing exactly that for various reasons.

comment Where does the “slippery slope” of allegorical interpretations start?
I'm not sure that they would see it that way. What I mean is, if I assume that it's all allegory, then I probably also reject the concept that there is a "right" interpretation in the first place. At least, my experience with these sort of people has felt very post-modern in that respect.
