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 Where should the Messianic application begin and end in Jacob's blessing to Judah?
@JackDouglas - I added the last para and did clean up some of the text. My source is my own thinking after meditating on the thoughts of 6-10 commentaries for a few days. Actually I only answered my own question as nobody was taking a stab at it. My question is not so much about the literal aspects. Cheers.

comment Should Matthew 27:6-7 Be Taken as a Demonstration of Hypocrisy?
I think Matthew was just trying to record a true account of the events. As the Chief priests were both wicked and hypocritical, then yes, that was Matthews intention? I have a feeling I still do not understand the question. Cheers

comment To what extent do deductive approaches consider authorial intent?
@MonicaCellio - David prayed the way I propose, but I admit its is more readily supported in the Christian NT. 'Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law' (NIV Psalm 119:18)

comment To what extent do deductive approaches consider authorial intent?
@swasheck - I don't think I disagree with any of your comments. I think I was using the term deduction and dogma slightly differently than how you are using them. I am not a fan of topical studies. What I mean is when I read a given text that might imply God is unholy I apply pressure from my faith (from texts that say he is holy) onto the difficult text, in order to help understand it. Cheers
