comment What were the “tokens of virginity”?
Perhaps, to uphold doctrinal integrity needed elsewhere, the translation uses the term "maid" rather than "virgin".

comment Should The Creation Story in Genesis Be Understood as Metaphorical?
"I asked about evidence of authorial intent." - NO, no, no, you didn't. I can't read your mind unless you put it in words.

Jews don't need Jesus to traverse the torah, because we understand the journey in the torah.

"When it comes to the law, was any man able to fulfill the law before Christ Jesus?" Yes, according to the Bible I read in Hebrew. Let me break the news to you, that the word [תורה] means "way" or in proper English "the way", the cause-effect. Or in sanskrit "karma". Your prophet is written to have said "I am karma, satya and jiwa", if translated to sanskrit. The words "torah" and "karma" is hugely misunderstood. There is nothing to fulfill - the torah is a path to reach a destination. The complete torah is the continuum intrapolated by the written torah.

A door is a door. But when you weld it shut or plaster over it, it ceases to be a door. It may look like a door, but it is as effective as painting a door on the wall. Scientific Education is a door to future prosperity. Even if you forced a context to banish scientific education, you can never use the hypothesis of context to say the phrase "Scientific Education is a door to future prosperity" as untrue.

"out of context" is a stale and overused phrase. This phrase is used too many times to escape facing a question at its value. Sometimes, people use a verse and apply it as universal maxim. And then when a conflict is encountered, the phrase "out of context" is often deployed. But then, a verse that is usable as a universal maxim, can never be "out of context". Once you apply the phrase "out of context", you should never use that verse as universal maxim.
