comment What is the meaning of the reference to 'stones' in Ecclesiastes 3?
People who vote this down need to read the original Hebrew not the English or Greek translations.

Scriptural machiavellianism = the strategy of maintaining more than one context and meaning for a concept, such that the meaning is conveniently switched at all costs to ensure the integrity of a doctrine, without consideration to the integrity of the concept itself.

So, 2Pet3:12 does not say any believer/devotee should expect and hasten the day? Only certain people are to expect and hasten the day? Are you saying that not everyone should expect and hasten the day?

So now I have edited my question to make it clearer ?

So when there is rebuke, it is only meant for Jews and Israel. When it is good, like the new covenant addressed to Israel and Jews in Jer 31:31, then you cherry-pick to say it includes Christians?

So is it good to crave, expect and hasten the "day"? Or is it bad? So, Amos is not applicable to Christians?

I don't understand the word "context" you used here. Are you saying the two "day"s are not the same "day" ? The core of the matter is "are they contradicting instructions" ?

Which means Jesus in Christian theology was not intended fulfill the scrutiny of the original Hebrew scriptures?

Why would anyone vote the question down? Is the question not legit? Does the question offend anyone ?

comment Meaning of Ezekiel 5:8
It is a huge leap of presumptuousness to believe that the infinite Identity can be sufficiently pronounced verbally. What more to believe pronouncing the Name as "yahweh". There is a concept in signal engineering known as "aliasing", such that if you picked just one dimension of three (or more) dimensional objects, they can masquerade each other due to the insufficiency of that single dimension as descriptors of such objects. Are you sure that your single-dimensional reference of the so-called "yahweh", is not summoning unknown entities aliased to that pronunciation?

comment How does the act of “foot washing” lead to the act of “sexual intercourse”?
I don't think it is enjoyable to have sex while your feet (and thighs) are all soiled with dirt, mud and the blood of people you have killed.

comment Who were the Nicolaitans and why did Jesus hate their deeds?
Nicolaitans sounds like modern day prosperity victory gospel. Nico = victory. I am picturing the TVangelists yelling "victory" and "prosperity" as the requisite evidence of being "in the presence of lord".

All the five is about the text and directed at the text, as far as Jewish understanding is concerned.

comment What is the new covenant made with Jews/Israel in Jeremiah 31:31
I asked the question because, I need to know the specific views of both Jews and Christians. So now I have a much better understanding of the Christian arg on this passage. Obviously, ethically, I cannot choose a best answer, unless I could choose two answers, because I would choose the best Jewish answer simply because I see the Christian argument of sub-planting Jews as claimable even by Islam, black-hebrewism, gaelic-israelism, or any tomdickorharry. My ulterior is to understand the Christian arg amap in order to craft my explanation to Jews who had fallen prey to Christianity.

I upvoted both Jewish and Christian answers that are well thought out and has scriptural basis. Christians who often downvote good Jewish answers should follow my example.

Why can't we accept a new proclamation of the same old law?
