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 Is there a link between the Jewish expectation of a literal Messianic kingdom and the command to witness to the ends of the earth in Acts 1?
+1 - Great answer and a lot of positive enthusiasm. I think literal Israel will receive Christ long before the second coming, but that is way besides the point. Also to support your connection their are many proofs Jews believed Messiah's reign was to extend to the ends of the earth and nobody needed to wait for invisible power for it. Psalms 2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. Excellent post! Cheers

I have seen a few options and agree Isaiah 60:1-2 is the most acceptable answer.

comment How can Psalms 68:18 be translated as in Ephesians 4:8?
Interestingly I looked up the Romans 3:4 case and although this may be a good example, as you argue, Paul happens to be using the switch that the LXX already did. νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε - to conquer when you are judged.

+1 - This seems very close to the answer from Hodge I posted but I lean more to his view that the decision in this context is simply God's incarnation which parallels God coming down to Israel (although he did descend further for sure). Also that the plunder is the whole church and all the blessing he obtained for her.
