comment What is the meaning of mešeq in Genesis 15:2?
Is no less valid than other opinions which likewise depend on conjectures. At least my conjecture is based on the usual common Hebrew grammatical patterns and inflections.

"folk etymology"? Using the word "folk" is a cunning way to sweep aside a theological argument based on Hebrew word analysis. Certainly, some of the opinions you read and accept, too are "folk" analogy that got accepted, which you never bothered to question.

comment Was Moses the probable author of Genesis?
It's too bad you don't read Hebrew, and you can only say "well that was how the translators translated it". Your KJV, RSV, NIV depend heavily on the septuagint. The American Standard version does try to be close to the masoret, but when it comes to avoiding contradiction with christian doctrine, it too continues to depend on the septuagint. All of Christian doctrines are based on the septuagint, not the masoret, in conjunction with the newer greek christian documents/epistles.

Yet, are there original copies of the septuagint? The masoret had been and still is compulsively copied by hand over hundreds of years. The septuagint as result of translation to Greek, has lost most of the Hebrew dynamics.

Yes. In fact, almost of the entire Psalm 23 is mistranslated in English. The fact is, you are using the septuagint as basis of translation and the masoret as paper weight. The excuse is, septuagint was translated earlier than the earliest discovered manuscripts of masoret or dead sea scrolls.

The fact that Damascus existed as a city, demonstrated the must have been pervasiveness of the story of Abraham and Eliezer. That is to say, linguistic paleontological evidence for the existence of Abraham and the factual prominence of legacy of Abraham even among the Assyrians that a city was founded out of the birthplace of his adoptive kin.

comment Back in ships Deut 28
Too many people claiming to be the "original" Israel. Too many people claiming to replace Jews. Especially when there is no evidence of such claims, but mere conjectures. Especially when there is no demonstrated effort in the history of those claimants in using of Hebrew among the elite of those claimants. Especially when they attempt to twist Hebrew words using pronunciation of Latinized transliteration to fit a diverse collection of African or Celtic words.

[כתב]KThV = write. [כתוב] KThWV = passive participle, written. [כתובים] KThWVIM = plural = the (collection of) the written = the books. [כיתב] KiThaV = piel intensive perfected = writing with intensive effort = to write a book, for example is rather intensive writing. Therefore, do not use modern and medieval Hebrew to interpret ancient Hebrew. SFR is merely the accounting of details that may not have transpired the KThV phase.

Numbers 21:14 does not actually necessarily say "the book" of wars. [ספר] is rather in mutated meaning in modern and medieval Hebrew. If you analysed aramaic and arabic, the word for "book" is more towards using [כתב] KThV. Like AlKitab = the Book = the Bible. Whereas, [ספר] originally means "to count". And it is actually used as "to give an account of". As of today, Arabic retains the original meaning of SFR = count. Therefore, the verse actually says, "On the fact of saying in the verbal history of the wars of the LORD ... ". No "book" was involved.

comment What does bible say about being gay and lesbians?
If you read Leviticus verses in Hebrew, they imply it is an abomination not to regulate homosexuality. Therefore, Leviticus implies it is an abomination to forbid homosexuality, because you can't regulate it if you forbid it.

People who vote this down need to read the original Hebrew not the English or Greek translations.

comment Do 2nd Peter 3:12 and Amos 5:18 contradict each other in their advice in regard to the day of God?
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.

comment Do 2nd Peter 3:12 and Amos 5:18 contradict each other in their advice in regard to the day of God?
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 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 ?
