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)

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.

comment In the time of Jesus, were the Jewish authorities allowed to execute?
+1 I think your note that "Perhaps Rome restricted Jewish courts at the time" is an important one. The Romans ruled over Jerusalem for quite a long time, sometimes directly under a procurator and sometimes with their own "king" (Herod the great). If their ever was a Roman law that forbid them to execute criminals, it could have been only for a short time when trying to keep this bothersome area under control.

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

comment What did Moses do at Horeb in the first place?
Yeah, that's an interesting question. And in what way was he associated with Google? I think I need to ask a new question about all this...
