comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
That was what I guessed. Just wanted it to be clear. Interesting question, but it is a bit contradictory by quoting the Christian New Testament when you don't want a Christian answer ;-)

Are you deliberately asking the question in a way that rules out answers about that "die" not mean to die physically in this context? You might do that and that gives an interesting perspective to this verse, but I just want to make sure that this is what you meant to ask :-)

comment What is Babylon refering to in the New Testament?
@user2479 I'm looking forward to an exciting exegesis (not eisegesis) :-)

comment What is Babylon refering to in the New Testament?
Great answer. It might be worth noting that there are still people arguing for an earlier date though I'm not among them.

comment What's the importance of Melchizedek from a Hebrew Bible-only point of view?
Good point. I guess I take him as an important person because of my Christian glasses. I added Ps 110:4 also to my question, does that not make him of some significance anyway?

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 :)

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)

Ok. I understand.... :)

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.

comment Revelation: Before or after AD70?
Yeah. Thinking about this, it only seems to be a unnecessary remark. I think I just conclude that it is preferred and if someone want to argue otherwise. They may do that.

Yeah! It might be more common with the Sychar story when speaking in these matters. I just tried connecting the dots when mention it :)

Ok. Added that to my answer :)

comment What/where is Topheth?
No problem. It reaaly is! I only browsed through the article myself (my limited English skills made it hard to understand some things). But it seemed to say what I've been thought previously, please correct me otherwise.

comment Were all the cananites slaughtered or not?
Your answer makes sense. I guess Jerusalem should be counted as the northern part of the country then in this case.

comment Were all the cananites slaughtered or not?
@JonEricson Yeah! I know that it's not uncommon. But that answer challenges my view of the scripture. And I'm not sure I want to go where such an answer leads me ;-) But that of course is a much bigger discussion which is beyond the scope of this question!

comment Were all the cananites slaughtered or not?
Yet this is what my first quote says: "Joshua defeated the whole land[...] He left no survivors. He annihilated everything that breathed". Or is it something from your answer I don't understand (English is not my native language)? How to harmonize the two accounts?

comment What is the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics?
It wouldn't be right to +1 for "5 Timothy 127:33", would it? ;-)

comment Jesus is both the good shepherd and the gate - Is it the same parable or two different?
I'm a little bit picky. But the first picture really looks like a religious one. So the only thing it is proving is that there is artists that have painted Jesus as literary the gate to the sheep. From the other one I can't say anything about the door. You are probably right, especially when @Caleb has seen this in modern days. But I will continue my quest a little bit farther. Anyway +1 :-)
