comment Who is Christ referring to when he says, “I [am] was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel?” (Matthew 15:24)
The Greek does not say "I am". You should not even try to associate Jesus to the tetragrammaton by hinting "I am", unless the original language of your bible is English.

comment Leviticus says animal sacrifice will cleanse you from your sins. Hebrews says it's impossible. What does “clean” mean?
It is a mystery that people downvote me without reading the Hebrew of the Bible, without telling me where I have made a mistake. Except saying I am arrogant.

comment Interpretation of Psalm 12:6-7
The masoret merely codified the ancient Hebrew texts. To say that "the masoretic text wasn't even written yet" is a rather deceptive attitude to denigrate the originality of the Hebrew scriptures.

comment Who incited David to take a census and what's wrong with taking a census anyway?
I don't think Joab was bellicose. He was a nationalist. He made logical decisions, which questioned David's blind faith. David found Joab his chief of staff being extremely capable and therefore found Joab obstructionist to his visions that were hatched in blind faith. Joab/Yoav is a true Jewish hero who faithfully and strategically defended his people. To his death the bellicose king David carried a grudge that G'd honoured Yoav more than the king himself. Angry that Yoav did not mediate David's ambition with G'd in the enumeration of Israel.

comment Did Paul imply that the Jews had the capacity to believe in Romans 9:32?
Jesus is NOT, has NEVER been, and NEVER WILL be the king of Jews, or the messiah mentioned chronologically between the books of Genesis to Malakhi.

comment What are the oldest copies we have of LXX
This question is completely outside the rules of this forum - BUT please make an exception and not close it because the answer should be interesting and helpful. I even upvoted it.

comment How should I interpret Hebrews 12:14 correctly?
I have difficulty sincerely phrasing a question for which I already have the linguistic answer.

comment What law are you under if you dont live by the spirit
Do you actually believe that the Bible specifically says "10 commandments"? Why are then the laws in Deut, Exod, Num not "commandments"? People who do not understand the Torah speak freely and derogatorily about her.

Define "prophet".

Jews did not stumble over Jesus. Actually Jesus stumbled over Jews, if a singular person Jesus did exist at all.

comment How should I interpret Hebrews 12:14 correctly?
* 'righteousness' as I take it is akin to having a "legal" right-standing before* --- that is a conjecture with no scripturally grammatical basis.

This site does not allow questions not based on any specific passage of the Bible. No general questions allowed.

comment How should I interpret Hebrews 12:14 correctly?
What is the meaning of "righteousness"? Will you be giving me the English meaning, or the Greek meaning or the Hebrew meaning? Are their meanings coincident?

comment What law are you under if you dont live by the spirit
Define "law". Is that definition the same as the Hebrew word [תורה]TORaH? What is the meaning of the word [תורה]TORaH? If the two meanings do not coincide, then what is the implication?

comment Did God make two different covenants with Abram/Abraham
When a man gets married to a woman (or man to man, or woman to woman) - 1st they make a verbal commitment, then they get a marriage licence, then they have a ceremony in Jerusalem honeymoon in Israel, and then they have a ceremony in LA, and then another ceremony in small town Kansas. Did the couple get married a few times? Why do we need to have a discrete quantum, rather than a continuum view of the covenant?

comment What did Pharaoh mean by “sin” and “righteous”?
That is why when I ask a question, I would want to ask for references to other verses. But my questions were reprimanded telling me that this site requires to focus on specific verses. Such method of Bible exegesis promoted here will fail and severely reprimanded in a southern baptist seminary.

comment What did Pharaoh mean by “sin” and “righteous”?
[הפעם] = this moment = now. For example, Gen 46:30 - did Jacob/Israel say - this occurrence (out of many occurrences of losing you for 13 years) of seeing you, then shall I die after seeing you. ???
