I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment What does “bless” [ברך] mean?
@BlessedGeek - I think the examples were only refering to bless derived from Hebrew kneel. As far as whi kneels, both in a sense but the link is loose as simply refering to a spiritual excercise stemming from a religious physical posture that becomes symbolic of a spiritual subject in general.

comment Does the pharaoh let just anybody approach him?
Yes there is a lot of subtext that the Bible narrative does not detail. I would think Moses could approach Pharaoh in two ways without getting into trouble. One, say he is sorry for his previous mistakes and asked to be welcome back into the family, or two, as a representative and ambassador of a whole people (the slaves) who were part of Pharaoh's domain. In either case if one had some Egyptian history to work with I bet that we can assume others would have arranged this meeting and Pharaoh would have pre-cleared its approval. Good question.

comment Psalm 34:20 applied to Jesus' crucifixion
@shakAttack - Yes. Here is a helpful list of documented verses in the Bible ancient Jews regarded as containing hidden prophecies about Messiah. (This list was compiled by a Jew converted to Christianity who was a scholar on Jewish history) juchre.org/life/appen09.htm
