comment Did the Romans (and Jewish law) allow the Jewish authorities to execute?
Actually, when I first asked the question I didn't even think about that there could be any problem from the Jewish point of view to execute. All I thought of was what the Romans allowed them to do. So @GoneQuiet's answer was mind opening for me. This answer might be a little speculative about the Romans. And I might tend to be a bit fast with the acceptance button sometimes but I don't think this answer should be removed because the Jewish approach to death penalty is also relevant. But if someone gives a clear answer from the Roman point of view I might just accept that instead.

comment What is “the stump of Jesse”?
Actually I think your answer to question 1 is better in answering also the second one ;) John Wesley says "at the time when..." which suggest that Isaiah is not only foreseeing the coming of Messiah, he is also forseeing the ruination of the Davidic kingdom which goes before it. This is pretty much the answer I would have given myself, but I was curious on if I was right and if there were other interpretations :)

Make it clear that this is speculative and two different options.

comment What did Moses do at Horeb in the first place?
Interesting +1 I guess your first option is just speculation (which is okey if you make it clear) Or are there any verses that backs this up?

comment Was it unusual for a woman (Mary) to sit at Jesus' feet in the account of Luke 10?
I think it was both. If I, for example, didn't eat mushrooms someone could be shocked about me and note to somone that "I saw him eating it with a Sarah". That would make it sound like it was unexpected that I ate it with Sarah, but the context (that I usually don't eat mushroom) would tell the listener that it the shocking thing was that I ate a mushroom. A bad example maybe, but I hope you see what I mean :)

comment Why does Genesis 28:12 note that angels were going up and down the ladder?
For the sake of completeness, there are people claiming that this story is one of fertility. argument 1: He is laying on his back. Argument 2: "Things" move up and down. Argument 3: He is promised to become a big people. (Needless to say, this is not how I view this story)

comment Revelation: Before or after AD70?
Your answer is good. More in depth then mine. But with your knowledge about the subject I love to hear you try to step back from your own opinion (which in fact is the same as mine). But maybe you can't see any strengths with the early dating at all? And no problems with your own view? I can't give you more then the +1 I already given. But it would really add to the answer if you tried to say something about the opposing view.
