comment In the gospels, why does Jesus sometimes tell the people not to tell anyone after he has performed a miracle?
Jesus seems to have controlled the political fallout of everything he did to orchestrate the timing when the religious leaders would finally erupt in enough jealousy so as to put him to death. It is similar to the reason why he spoke in parables, to confuse and keep in the dark his enemies while drawing those open to him closer. Jesus was covert in accomplishing the mission of his death.

fyi - I rarely vote down...just does not suit my personality and did not here either. However My question for the case of better being unborn then born ...is better for everyone or jist some. I don't really see what your opinion is? Also I'm not sure any Christian doctrine is at stake here but I can imagine in other instances it may come into play a have also experienced the inverse now and again;)

@DickHarfield - If one is to understand it not literally, the question remains the same, is it applied to some, or all?

comment What point is the author driving home by listing so many opposing activities that seem to have their own seasons? (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
I think this has the right focus and it also shows how little influence we have in many of the 'right times' that lead us into various ways. We may claim that to have arrived at on our own when they seem successful (like a Donald Trump)..but we had actually only a small role to play in it.

comment What did God put into the heart of man according to the LXX in Ecclesiastes 3:11?
ya this question arose because i have a few Hebrew explanation sources and even reliable sources went for different translation which made me curious about the LXX as an older translation which my Hebrew sources did not refer to.

comment What does the author of Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 mean that 'his heart was still guided with wisdom' as he went about doing foolish things?
thanks for the in-depth answer. i enjoy having a window into ancient views, however in this case I can't accept as I am not convinced Solomon saw that the wisdom that guided him he saw as folly...but he saw the wisdom as wisdom...preserving him in some important way inwardly from an uncritical abandon into the flesh.

I see where these old guys are going with it, and it does come close to what I am also thinking but the wisdom seems to be a positive thing that in some ways prevented from truly being a slave to his flesh and brining him through a journey where he himself wrote scripture with the conclusions....so surely 'wisdom' still guided and stayed with this man not only in his reading but in his thinking and believing. A prodigal might be a believer at the same time?
