comment Should John 1:18 read “the only begotten God”?
We shouldn't willy-nilly change the meaning of a word, or restrict its spectrum, just because we feel it is "best translated" that way.

comment Is there an allusion to Psalm 22 in John 19:30, ‘It is finished’?
Susan, my regrettable aversion to the Greek documents is they are created out of motivations to equivalize Hebrew scriptures to Hellenism, by using hellenistic attitudes and pagan mythical imagery as an attempt to speak to an audience familiar with such pagan allegories. Exactly opposite to what we need to do, to expunge those influences from the Bible.

No, Mr Hamm. They form part of the explanation and disclaimer to my answer, so that my answer would not have side-effects I do not intend to have. If people are allowed to append favourable corollaries to their answer, I should be allowed to include non-favourable corollaries.

I think it is really a shame, that whenever I write something relevant to the question, but which carries the evidence disconnecting Christianity from JEwish heritage, my answer is refuted as out of focus and downvoted. There are answers in this forum which are completely anecdotal and thoroughly out of focus, and nobody bothers to vote them down.

The answer is to refute that [עשה] has anything to do with the meaning of "complete". Quite obviously. Such that, if Susan wants to find a word meaning "complete", I have shown her the words she needs to focus on. Did you downvote for religiously offended, or because you did not understand the answer being relevant to the question?

2ndly, the existence of Jesus as a singular person is up for grabs. Every mention of any Jesus has been 3rd hand or cursory, like accusing his disciples of eating humans and drinking blood.

There is a lot of scriptural reading that imbues Jesus with pagan stuffs and that the religion of Jesus imported those pagan stuffs not found between Genesis to Malakhi.

In my scriptural analysis, Jesus is a pagan god. Therefore, if I have to consider Jesus as holy, then I would have to consider amateresu, chrishna, buddha as equivalently holy. BTW, despite all the conspiracy theories you might have read, allah is from Aramaic אלה, as used in Daniel.

So Muslims' consideration of holiness to Allah and Hindu's consideration of holiness to their gods, and Shintoists' consideration of holiness to their chief god ameteresu - all these don't qualify as holiness?

What "holiness" ? Muslims' and Hindus' in south and southeast asia sanctity is not holy enough ? Sacredness in Shinto Japan is not holy enough? Only the "holiness" of people who celebrate christmas or hanukah is qualified to be considered holy ?
